Lions Claim Guard Trevor Canfield

The Lions have added another former Seahawks offensive guard to the roster.  Unlike the trade that brought Rob Sims to Detroit, however, the Lions simply claimed the newest member of the team, Trevor Canfield, off waivers.

Canfield was one of the last picks of the draft last year, selected 254th overall by the Cardinals.  He stayed with the Cardinals past the final round of roster cuts and into the regular season as a member of the practice squad before the Seahawks signed him to their active roster.  He was just released by Seattle last Friday as Pete Carroll and company continue to evaluate which players will fit into their new offensive scheme.  Obviously Canfield is not one of those players, giving the Lions the chance to add another body to the roster to compete for a spot on the offensive line this summer.

National Football Post reports that the Bears also claimed Canfield, but the Lions ended up with him because they have waiver priority.
