The Detroit Lions have signed running back Jahvid Best to a five-year contract.

      The Lions announced Friday they reached an agreement with their second first-round pick. The 30th overall selection out of California signed a five-year contract and will be in camp in time for Saturday's team meetings and opening workout.
     
The reporting deadline came and went without a deal being reached with Ndamukong Suh, who was taken second overall.
     
Lions coach Jim Schwartz says he expects that a deal with the defensive tackle from Nebraska will rely on the Rams signing the top overall pick, quarterback Sam Bradford.
