Dylan Gandy continues to get the "bulk" of Lions first-team right guard reps.

Gandy has held off Jake Scott and rookie Larry Warford throughout the offseason program and into camp. It's still one of the Lions' most intense position battles. Warford and Scott are both mixing in with the starters, and we suspect the Lions want the rookie to win out. Warford clearly has the most upside.

Dylan Gandy has taken the majority of first-team right guard reps this offseason.

The Lions want third-round rookie Larry Warford to win the job, but he's going to have to earn it. Gandy, Leroy Harris and Jake Scott all bring vast NFL experience to the competition. Warford has spent OTAs on the second team.

Lions OLs Dylan Gandy, Bill Nagy, and Rodney Austin are tentatively expected to compete for the starting right guard job.

Gandy, an eight-year veteran, is the most experienced of the trio, having appeared in 105 career games and starting 19. Nagy and Austin have combined to play in four career games. Offensive line and defensive end are Detroit's top two needs heading into the draft.

Lions re-signed G/C Dylan Gandy to one-year contract.

Gandy, a nine-year veteran, played in all 16 games last season, mainly on special teams. He'll resume his backup duties on the interior offensive line.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 06:35:00 PM

Lions agreed to terms with OG Dylan Gandy on a two-year contract.

Gandy returns to the Lions as a backup for the interior of the line. He's clearly not insurance for LT Jeff Backus' pectoral woes.
Fri, Jul 29, 2011 11:04:00 AM

Lions extended a tender offer to potential restricted free agent OG Dylan Gandy.

The inside swingman played offensive snaps in just three games last season. He's a five-year veteran, so it's no lock that he'll return to Detroit for 2011.
Fri, Mar 4, 2011 09:13:00 AM

Lions re-signed restricted free agent G/C Dylan Gandy to a one-year, $1.176 million tender.

Gandy was an emergency starter in five games last season, but he'll head back to an interior swing role this year with Rob Sims now on board.
Thu, Apr 15, 2010 11:37:00 AM

The Lions have extended an original pick restricted free agent tender to G/C Dylan Gandy.

Gandy is undersized at 6'3/290 and hadn't started a game until 2009 after five years in the league, but the Lions must have thought he held up well. Gandy will be safe from offer sheet interest as a former fourth-round pick.

Dylan Gandy is expected to receive his first career start at right guard Sunday.

Detroit will start its sixth different offensive line combination this week, with Stephen Peterman (injured reserve, ankle) and Daniel Loper (back) out. The loss of Peterman, the team's only quality run blocker, has killed Kevin Smith's production of late.
Fri, Dec 4, 2009 09:35:00 AM

Lions signed C/G Dylan Gandy to a one-year contract.

Gandy spent time with the Broncos and Raiders last season, but he never saw game action. He'll battle for a roster spot on the Lions this summer.
Mon, Apr 6, 2009 11:39:00 AM

Raiders waived C/G Dylan Gandy.

Owner Al Davis considered Gandy the "53rd guy" on the roster, even though it should be Sam Williams. Gandy could return to Oakland at a later date.
Thu, Dec 4, 2008 06:15:00 PM

Raiders signed C/G Dylan Gandy, formerly of the Broncos.

Gandy is an athletic lineman with the skills to be a versatile backup in the zone-blocking scheme. He's basically on a tryout for the next five weeks.
Wed, Nov 26, 2008 03:12:00 PM

Broncos re-signed C/G Dylan Gandy.

Gandy has been on and off the Broncos roster several times, but he's needed for depth now that Tom Nalen has been placed on injured reserve.
Wed, Sep 24, 2008 10:18:00 AM

Broncos waived G Dylan Gandy.

Gandy goes to make room on the roster for Brandon Marshall who is returning from a one-game suspension.
