Lions claim kicker Justin Medlock off waivers

John Niyo of the Detroit News reports that the Lions have claimed kicker Justin Medlock off waivers from the Redskins.

In Washington, Medlock was out-kicked by Graham Gano at offseason workouts.  Gano connected on all four of his field goal tries late last season with the Redskins, allegedly with a broken foot.
Medlock, a former fifth-round pick of the Chiefs during the final days of the Carl Peterson/Herm Edwards era, will probably serve as a “camp leg” behind starter Jason Hanson in training camp.

    This guy doesn’t have the poise to kick in the NFL. Taken by renowned kicking experts Carl Peterson and Herm Edwards in the 5th round, he bumbled his way worse than a typical rookie in camp, missed FGs week 1 in Houston (back when Houston stunk), and headed to the Great White North for a few years the next day. Waste of a practice jersey.
