On Saturday it was reported that the Detroit Lions were looking for some help at offensive tackle. One day later they decided to upgrade in the experience department by signing offensive tackle Kevin Haslam and releasing offensive tackle Austin Holtz.

Haslam entered the NFL in 2010 as an undrafted free agent. As is usually the case with players who sign with the Lions Haslam was with the Jacksonville Jaguars at the start of his career. He was active for five games in 2010 in Jacksonville and he made three starts in five games with the San Diego Chargers in 2012. He's also spent time with the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots which just recently released him.
