TJ Lang signs 3-year deal with Lions

Report: TJ Lang signs three-year deal with Lions

Meanwhile, the Lions' acquisition of Lang solidifies their offensive line both in the passing game and in the run as well.

T.J. Lang is going home.

"The last thing I relayed to them all was I really feel like we can form one of the best units in the league with all the talent we have", he said. The 29-year-old has spent his last eight seasons with Green Bay but could be tempted to join his hometown team in Detroit.

Lions gave former Packers G TJ Lang a three-year deal, per source. "Took a visit to Detroit, had a great visit out there with all the coaches and everybody and just loved the attitude around the facility". "I was no different and when this opportunity came about I got really excited about it". "Honestly, it was exciting a little bit of the time, but it was stressful".

"Right now it's just, I think the biggest thing is it's not just me making a decision on where I want to go play, what team I want to play for, what city I want to live in". I was one of them as a kid.

The Lions had a gaping hole at guard this offseason, as Larry Warford left Detroit to sign with the New Orleans Saints.

Lang will also be joining Ricky Wagner on the Detroit offensive line. The Lions' made an aggressive move to upgrade over Riley Reiff at right tackle by signing Rick Wagner to a five-year deal.

He had surgery on his hip in January but said Sunday he will be ready for training camp.
