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. Ogletree joined the Lions during...
