Lions claim Marcus McCauley

The Detroit Lions continue to remake the worst roster in pro football from a year ago by scouring over the scraps of other teams.

Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Lions have snagged former Vikings cornerback Marcus McCauley on waivers.

McCauley, a third-round pick in 2007, will now be in position to help the Lions figure out how to beat the Vikings when they come to town in Week Two.

And the Lions will have the right to continue to cherry pick any and all players put on waivers through the first three weeks of the season.  At that time, the 2009 won-loss records will control waiver priority.

If the Lions work hard and apply themselves, maybe they’ll continue to be at the top of the pecking order.

    Wow….
    I didn’t think the lions could get anymore desperate, and here they are grabbing Marcus McUseless. The guy had one decent start back in the 07 season against the Chargers and has been a bust and a half.

    Damn, if that’s all they want, they should sign me….

    The DETROIT LIONS that’s who.
    I like the move. Clearly the Detroit secondary has been pathetic, any move is an improvement.

    Marcus McCauley is a good player. He just lost his spot while being injured last year. The Lions could have done worse.

    Florio, you’re a tool.
