It was a surprise on Tuesday when the Denver Broncos waived offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus. It’s no surprise that multiple NFL teams put in waiver claims on him.
Polumbus has been awarded to the Lions, and Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Texans and Seahawks also put in claims for Polumbus. The Lions get him because they had the worst 2009 record of the three teams.
Polumbus has played in every game but one for the Broncos since signing as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado in 2008. Last year he started eight games, and he said he expected to make the team this year as well.
“It was a little unexpected,” Polumbus said. “But I’m just blessed to have been able to start my career here in Denver in my hometown.”
Now he gets to take his talents to Detroit.
