Cletis keeps getting cut

He was cut by the Chargers last month. 

The Texans claimed him on waivers.

Within days, the Texans cut him, too.

He was claimed by the Lions.

Now, the Lions have cut cornerback Cletis Gordon, who has completed the cut-down trifecta.

He’ll pass through waivers again.  If/when he clears, he’ll be an unrestricted free agent.

The Lions also cut receiver Adam Jennings and defensive end Ikaika Alama-Francis, a second-round pick in 2007, whose contract is partially guaranteed for 2009.

    If he has gotten picked up after the previous two cuts, someone will get him after some injuries during the season. Don’t feel too bad for the guy, he’ll make more money sitting the bench half the year than most people make in 10 years combined.

    Would that be considered a Triple Lindy?
