ALLEN PARK, MI (AP) -

The Detroit Lions have signed guard Geoff Schwartz.

The team made the move Wednesday, adding a player with starting experience to bolster its depth on the offensive line.

Schwartz started 11 games last year for the New York Giants before breaking his left leg, ending his season.

He has started 39 games in his career, including 16 in 2010 for Carolina, and has played in 74 games over six seasons with the Giants, Panthers, Kansas City and Minnesota. Carolina drafted the former Oregon standout in the seventh round in 2008 and he spent that year on its practice squad.
