ALLEN PARK, Mich. - The Lions officially begun their offseason workout program with veterans and rookies on Tuesday.
Wednesday, they added another player to that mix, claiming defensive end Braylon Broughton off waivers from the New Orleans Saints.
The second-year player spent all of last season on New Orleans' practice team after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of TCU.
He visited the Lions before the 2012 NFL Draft.
