It did not take Mike Daniels long to find a new home.
Two days after being released by the Packers on the eve of training camp, the defensive lineman has agreed to a one-year, $9.1 million deal with the Lions, according to ESPN.
The deal includes $7.8 million in guaranteed money.
Former Packers’ Pro Bowl Mike Daniels officially signed a one-year, $9.1 million deal that includes $7.8 million fully guaranteed with the Detroit Lions, per source.

Daniels, 30, signed a four-year, $42 million contract extension with the Packers in 2015 and made the Pro Bowl in 2017.
However, he regressed last season tallying just 18 tackles and two sacks in 10 games and the Packers attempted to trade him during the offseason.
Ultimately, Green Bay was unable to find a suitor and released him with one year remaining on his deal.
Daniels joins a Lions defense that finished 10th in the NFL in total yards allowed last season and tied for 14th in sacks.
Detroit also added Damon “Snacks” Harrison during the season last year and the two could become a very formidable duo in the front seven for the Lions.
