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.
