Free agency hit the ground running with some big names coming off the board early in the 4 o'clock hour on Tuesday. The Detroit Lions, with nearly 7.5 million dollars to spend, focused on resigning some of their own. Joique Bell received a three year deal worth 9.3 million dollars. The Lions also scooped up Kevin Ogletree for a base salary of 975,000 dollars.
Per multiple reports...
The Detroit Lions have re-signed a pair of their own free agents, RB Joique Bell and WR Kevin Ogletree.
The Detroit Lions opened the 2014 league year by re-signing a wide receiver.
This by no means qualifies as a splash, but the Detroit Lions did make a move right at the start of the 2014 league year by re-signing wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, according to Pro Football Talk. The deal is for one year, and chances are it's a minimum type of contract.

Detroit Lions safety Louis Delmas is a fantastic teammate. How do we know this? Delmas was willing to give up a member of his family so teammate Kevin Ogletree can live with him. Five years ago, former Lions linebacker Ernie Sims — a known collector of exotic animals — gave Delmas an alligator egg. That […]
It's Week 8 in the NFL, already the halfway point for the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys, who meet Sunday at Ford Field.
The winner will be two games above .500 with eight games to go, the loser an even .500, a potentially big difference heading into the second half of the season.
Here are five storylines to follow:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a series of unexpected moves this week, as they cut two players who appeared to be fixtures on the roster prior to the start of the season. By now, of course, we all know the long and sad story of Josh Freeman's demise in Tampa Bay, but an under the radar release was perhaps more of a surprise.The Buccaneers are very thin at the receiver position...
A day after being released by the Buccaneers, Kevin Ogletree has already caught on with Detroit. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football TalkFantasy Spin:Ogletree fills a need for the Lions, who have been looking to replace injured wideout Nate Burleson (eating pizza and driving don't mix apparently).

Ogletree, 25, had eight catches for 70 yards and one touchdown in four games for the Buccaneers, who are in the middle of a major in-season shakeup on offense.
The Lions need the extra depth at receiver because Nate Burleson is out indefinitely after breaking his arm last...

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, just after he had his best game of the season catching five balls for 30 yards. To date, he only had 8 receptions on 21 targets but we can’t blame him for that as Josh Freeman had been absolutely brutal thru the first three weeks and rookie Mike Glennon wasn’t much better on Sunday.
In a related move, the Bucs...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added another wide receiver this offseason. On the heels of signing Kevin Ogletree and Steve Smith, the Buccaneers moved on Thursday to ink a deal with free agent wide receiver Eric Page. Page is the University of Toledo’s leading receiver and was an undrafted free agent after last year’s draft. The Buccaneers had him on their radar last season, trying...
Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers improved substantially in the passing game for 2013, but they still need to add talent to their wide receiver core. Luckily the 2013 NFL draft offers a plethora of great wide receiver prospects that can turn the Bucs’ passing game to an envy of the league.
Vincent Jackson and Mike William are solid, the signing of Kevin Ogletree is an...

There will be a lot of talk about the hit that T.J. Ward hit on Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree. You may not like the rules, but the latest NFL rules give referees latitude to call unnecessary roughness in their judgement at basically any time at all. So all the talk about whether T.J. Ward hit Ogletree in the chest or not is moot, unfortunately. Don’t mistake my explanation as...
