Fenner has played two seasons for the Lions, really emerging in 2017 with 76 tackles, one sack and one interception while starting all 18 games at the strong-side linebacker position. The 27-year-old spent time with the Chiefs, Seahawks and Giants, playing 11 games for New York making seven tackles in 2014.

On offence offensive linemen Andrew Jones, Jaskaran Dhillon, Kirby Fabien, receiver Nick Moore will hit the open market.
