The Detroit Lions have been active in shuffling the bottom of the roster and adding players throughout training camp. That’s not by accident, as head coach Dan Campbell declared on Thursday.

Campbell was asked if he and the Lions pay close attention to the waiver wire and players who get dumped by other teams as the preseason progresses.

“Absolutely, every day,” Campbell immediately responded. “Brad (Holmes) and them have been on it every day for every team. I have told the team this and these guys know we’re always looking for the – just because you may be the number one guy here or the number two guy here doesn’t mean that it’s going to stay that way or that even you make it here. We’re looking for the best that are out there to help upgrade us roster-wise. That’s what Brad does. That’s what his crew does and we’re always looking there.”

Campbell did not get into specific positions of emphasis, but the Lions have been busy adding tight ends, defensive linemen and running backs in recent days. Expect the team to look at interior offensive line depth and wide receivers in the coming days.
