Lions Re-Sign Andre Fluellen, Cut Gorrer

After announcing a pair of roster moves earlier today, the Lions have made two more, according to Tim Twentyman of, who tweets that the club has re-signed defensive tackle Andre Fluellen and waived defensive back Danny Gorrer.

With Nick Fairley sidelined for the time being, defensive tackle was an area Detroit needed to address, and the team did so by bringing back a player who has spent most of his six-year NFL career as a Lion. Fluellen, who was released by the club during preseason roster cutdowns, appeared in 170 defensive snaps for Detroit in 2013, recording three tackles, pressuring the quarterback five times, and recovering a fumble.

According to Michael Rothstein of (Twitter link), this is the eighth time Fluellen has been added to the Lions’ roster, by way of drafting, signing, or re-signing.

    Andre Fluellen will contribute. Without Nick Farley, he should play plenty.
