Linebacker and unrestricted free agent Nick Bellore has agreed to a contract with the Detroit Lions. The unit of linebackers for Detroit has been thin, and the team’s front office continues to work toward adding much-needed depth. Bellore is the second linebacker signed during the free agency period for the Lions.

Former Central Michigan product Nick Bellore, 27, is coming off his most successful season as a pro last year. Recording 83 tackles, while recording an interception and sack from his linebacker position.


The seven-year vet has spent the previous two season playing for the San Francisco 49ers. The other four, Bellore was a member of the New York Jets. Entering the league as an undrafted free agent, Nick Bellore has the work ethic coaches love, and his work finally began paying off last year.

Detroit will hope the momentum of production from Bellore carries on to this upcoming season. Having Tahir Whitehead battling injuries off and on last season, Nick Bellore is a solid rotational pick up capable of filling in at the inside linebacker position. With the draft approaching, don’t be surprised if Detroit looks to stay active in free agency and add veteran puzzle pieces to their defensive and offensive lineups.

Details of the contract have not been disclosed.

My name is Jeremy Dill, and I am a proud fan of the 2008 Preseason Champs the Detroit Lions. However, that is not where my fandom ends. I enjoy all four major sports and the UFC. I root for all Detroit teams and am currently a transplant living in Central Florida and attended the University of Central Florida. If I can help it, I never miss a game no matter the sport. Sports are a huge part of my life. When not watching sports, I enjoy golfing and windsurfing. For those of you who watched “The Game”….. JT Barrett did not get that first down.
