Detroit Lions Re-Sign Muhlbach and Hyder
The Detroit Lions have re-signed LS Don Muhlbach. Contract terms were not disclosed.
Muhlbach returns to Detroit entering his 15th NFL season, all with the Lions. By playing in all 16 games in 2017, he moved his career games total to 212 and he currently ranks third on the Lions’ all-time list for career games played. Muhlbach is just the fourth player in franchise history to play in at least 200 games for the Lions and currently trails C Dominic Raiola (219) for second place. His 14 seasons played with the Lions are also tied for third in franchise history.
The Lions have also re-signed DE Kerry Hyder. Contract terms were not disclosed.
After joining the Lions in 2015 as a member of the team’s practice squad, Hyder led Detroit in sacks (8.0) in 2016 before missing last season due to injury. He entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Texas Tech in 2014 and spent his rookie season as a member of the New York Jets practice squad.
In 17 career games (two starts), Hyder has totaled 36 tackles (23 solo), eight sacks, one pass defense and one fumble recovery.
