The Detroit Lions have signed offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz to a one-year deal, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Schwartz, 29 was released by the New York Giants last month after spending two seasons with the team. He originally signed a four-year, $16.8 million deal, but missed large chunks of the last two seasons with injuries.
After starting 11 games at guard in 2015, Schwartz suffered a broken leg in Week 12 against the Washington Redskins, ending his season.
Schwartz is expected to be ready for off-season workouts, and will compete with Laken Tomlinson and Larry Warford for the starting guard job.
The Lions allowed 44 sacks last season in the NFL, the 10th–highest total in the league.
