Justin Medlock K OAK 11 Months
The Lions recently worked out free agent K Justin Medlock.
Medlock, 29, spent the first 11 weeks of last season with the Panthers before getting the ax. He made 7-of-10 field goals over that span. Medlock has been toiling around the league for six years, and the Lions need a kicker after Jason Hanson announced his retirement on Thursday.

According to beat writer Steve Reed, the Panthers are "sold" on K Justin Medlock after releasing veteran Olindo Mare.
In other words, don't look for Neil Rackers or Billy Cundiff to land in Carolina. Medlock has played just one NFL game since the Chiefs drafted him in the fifth round back in 2007, but he's been one of the premier kickers in Canada. He has a shot at top-10 fantasy numbers in the Panthers' high-scoring offense.
