Lions signed DT Chuck Darby to a three-year contract.

Darby is expected to take Shaun Rogers' spot at nose tackle alongside Cory Redding, who will line up at the 3-technique. The team loses about four inches, 35 pounds, and gains four years going from Rogers to Darby. Still, he is familiar with coach Rod Marinelli's system and the two have a positive history together. We'll see how his recovery from a torn patellar tendon goes.

Seahawks DT Chartric Darby suffered a torn patellar tendon Sunday. He will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
