Lions add Nathan Vasher

The process of signing vested veterans has begun.

Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News reports that cornerback Nathan Vasher has agreed to terms with the Lions, a day after the Lions lost to the team for which Vasher played for six years, the Bears.

Vasher worked out for the Lions last week.  If he had been signed, his full-season base salary essentially would have been guaranteed.

The Lions developed a stronger need for Vasher on Sunday, when defensive back Aaron Berry suffered a shoulder injury. 

Vasher signed with the Chargers in the offseason after being cut by the Bears.  The Chargers cut him on September 4.

  1. I think the rule for signing vested veterans should be changed so that teams cannot sign any until after the last game has been played for the first week of the season by every team. Suppose a team playing on Monday night wanted one of those players and they were gone?
    A rule should be instituted that roster additions of otherwise vested veterans cannot start until 10AM Eastern time the day after the last game of week one.

  2. Detroit, don’t get too excited about some form of poetic justice in December (e.g. ex Bear gets vengance for city, team and self)
    There’s a reason he was cut by Chicago in the off season and didn’t catch on with his old defensive coordinator in San Diego this season.

  3. We won’t need a dime DB, to crush Chicago at home. As long as the refs don’t take away all 5
    of our touchdowns it won’t be close. Vanden Bosch will rip Cutler’s pouty head off.

  4. vasher has not been good since he had 8 int’s back in what 05? hope he stays healthy maybe he’ll help out..
