Tuesday Notes: Lions Claim Maurice Williams, Release Ephraim Salaam

  • The Lions have claimed offensive lineman Maurice Williams.  Williams was waived by the Jaguars over the weekend after playing for them since 2001.  He is from the city of Detroit and went to the University of Michigan, where he started at right tackle alongside the likes of Jeff Backus and Steve Hutchinson.  Williams was also a member of the Wolverines when Jon Jansen started at right tackle.  In the NFL, Williams has started 100 of the 105 games he's played in, and it seems like he is a good addition for depth purposes if he can stay healthy.  The Lions don't exactly have the best situation at guard, so it looks like Williams could help at that position.
  • To make room on the roster for Williams, the Lions released offensive tackle Ephraim Salaam.
  • The Lions might work out punters this week because Nick Harris hurt his knee while making a tackle against Cincinnati.
  • Jim Schwartz was understandably pissed off over some of the costly and stupid penalties the Lions got on Sunday.
  • Bryant Johnson's eyes looked a little odd on Sunday, but that was just because he wears tinted contacts.
  • Louis Delmas went into Sunday's game ready to talk trash with Chad Ochocinco, and considering Delmas knocked #85 out of the game with a big hit, I think he has definitely earned the right to.  Delmas went over to Ochocinco to make sure he was alright after the hit, and they had a nice exchange.  Ochocinco wasn't out for long and continued to improve on his big game, but overall I thought Delmas did a great job on Sunday.
  • The Lions' road losing streak is up to 18 games.
