Lions to host O.J. Atogwe, special teamer Tim Shaw

AP

Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reports that the club has scheduled visits with free agent safety O.J. Atogwe and free agent linebacker Tim Shaw for next week.

Atogwe was released in a cap-savings move earlier this week after a disappointing season with the Redskins. He has some coaching staff ties to the Lions, and could push Amari Spievey for the team’s starting strong safety job.

Shaw is a productive special teamer.

Perhaps more notably, Twentyman reports that the Lions are in talks with free agent linebacker Stephen Tulloch. The seriousness of those exchanges is unknown.
