They considered re-signing Wagner the No. 1 priority for the Ravens.

Wagner also fits what the Lions look for in offensive linemen: athleticism.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the deal is worth more than $9 million a year.

Reiff started 15 games at right tackle a year ago after spending the previous three seasons as quarterback Matthew Stafford's blindside protector at left tackle.

With roughly $23 million in cap space available, the Bills rank 24th in the National Football League, but that doesn't seem to stop them from pursuing a player who Mike Garafolo predicted could "blow the lid" off of the market for right tackles.

The Chicago Bears were hoping to upgrade their right tackle position in free agency, but one of their top targets is heading to one of the team's biggest rivals. It was a free-agent group that worked out well for the most part, with Quinn fully acknowledging a team isn't going to hit on every free agent. Are you hyped that the Lions are players in this year's free agent market? Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson signed an extension past year worth $11.2 million annually, but that was in anticipation of his eventual move to left tackle.

At this time a year ago, after Calvin Johnson's retirement, signing Jones was a good start and it was bolstered by moves after Jones. Hurst has 16 regular-season starts under his belt and made the transition to the right side past year.

A fifth-round pick in 2013, Wagner became the team's starting right tackle in 2014 when Michael Oher departed in free agency. With so many teams needing the talented right tackle, his price will be sure to soar, making some general managers balk at the type of price that will be payed for a right tackle.

No. 4 offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas is a restricted free agent. But Bob Quinn was determined to fortify the Lions' offensive line, and was willing to offer top dollar to do it.
