Lions re-signed DT Andre Fluellen.

Primarily an interior player, Fluellen will try to help paper over the loss of Jason Jones to a patellar tendon tear, although Willie Young, Israel Idonije, and rookie Devin Taylor will likely see the bulk of the extra snaps.

Lions signed DT Andre Fluellen, formerly of the Bears.

28-year-old Fluellen opened his career as a Lions third-round pick out of Florida State in 2008. He's pretty much been bouncing around the NFL ever since.

Bears released DT Andre Fluellen.

Fluellen was signed just last month. The sixth-year journeyman appeared in five games between the Lions and Dolphins last season. He'll look to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.

Bears agreed to terms with DT Andre Fluellen, formerly of the Lions, on a one-year contract.

A career backup, Fluellen appeared in five games between the Lions and Dolphins last season. He spent a good chunk of the year on the street. The owner of just 2.5 career sacks in 56 games, Fluellen will find snaps hard to come by on the Bears' increasingly crowded defensive line.

Lions re-signed DL Andre Fluellen.

Fluellen failed to register a tackle in two games with the Dolphins early this season. He started five of 46 games in Detroit from 2008-2011. The veteran's addition isn't a good sign for DT Nick Fairley, who suffered a shoulder injury in Week 14.

Dolphins signed DL Andre Fluellen, formerly of the Lions.

A 2008 third-round pick, Fluellen started just five of 51 games over four years in Detroit. Playing time will be hard to come by on the Dolphins' talented front line.
Tue, Sep 18, 2012 07:54:00 PM

Lions waived or released DL Andre Fluellen and Everette Brown, G Rodney Austin, C Dan Gerberry, S Reshard Langford, CB Justin Miller, WRs Lance Long, Patrick Edwards and Maurice Stovall.

Fluellen has served as depth in Motown for the past four seasons, appearing in 51 games since 2008. He drew interest from the Rams and Bengals in free agency. Stovall will try to latch on elsewhere as a special teamer.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 06:45:00 PM

Lions re-signed DT Andre Fluellen to a one-year contract.

Fluellen drew interest from the Rams and Bengals in free agency, but will return as depth in Detroit after appearing in at least 13 games each of the past three seasons. He played just 161 snaps in 2011, however, and has notched only 45 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 51 career games.

Free agent DT Andre Fluellen visited the Bengals.

He's visiting the Rams next. The former third-rounder has played 29 games as a reserve in Detroit the past two years. He could provide depth in Cincinnati after losing Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanene.

Lions DT Andre Fluellen is taking lessons in Wing Chun, the Chinese art of boxing, at the Detroit Kung Fu Academy this offseason.

Wing Chun helped former 10-year veteran Chike Okeafor reach a higher level in his career, and Fluellen needs all the help he can get. Now a restricted free agent, his roster spot is in jeopardy after the Lions drafted Nick Fairley on an already deep defensive line.
Fri, May 27, 2011 09:32:00 AM

Lions agreed to terms with third-round DT Andre Fluellen.

Fluellen could fight for snaps behind Cory Redding. He's more of a pass rusher than a run stopper.
Tue, Jul 22, 2008 09:48:00 PM

Lions rookie DT Andre Fluellen cited elbow and finger injuries as the cause for a lack of production in his final year at Florida State.

Fluellen, a third-round pick, is undersized but also quick off the snap, making him a good fit in Rod Marinelli's one-gap scheme. As a rookie, he could fight for snaps at the three-technique spot behind Corey Redding.
