ALLEN PARK, Michigan — The Detroit Lions have signed free agent defensive end Corey Wootton to a one-year contract.

Detroit announced the move Thursday. The Lions also promoted Lance Newmark to director of college scouting, Cedric Saunders to senior vice president of football operations and Scott McEwen to senior personnel executive.

Wootton joins the Lions after playing 15 games for the Minnesota Vikings last season. He had 16 tackles — 11 solo — and one sack. He spent the previous four seasons with the Chicago Bears and had a career-high seven sacks in 2012.
