07:41 AM ET 07.13 | The Lions' offseason roster overhaul isn't complete, but free agent defensive tackle John Thornton likely won't be part of it. Thornton said Sunday he recently turned down an offer to join the team and Jim Schwartz , his former defensive coordinator in Tennessee. Thornton, 32, was a starter in Cincinnati the last six seasons but was let go as the Bengals signed Tank Johnson. Now he's unsure if he'll play anywhere this fall.
