Lions Claim Safety David Roach

It's been hard to keep track of all of the changes the Lions' roster has undergone this week. Every day there have been at least a couple moves, and Wednesday was the busiest it's been all week. Four players were released, another was acquired in a trade and two more were claimed. Actually, check that, three players were claimed, bringing the roster back up to 80 players.

The move that went largely unnoticed yesterday was that the Lions claimed safety David Roach in addition to claiming Steven Hauschka and T.J. Rushing. Roach played in 15 games for the Rams last season and was waived by the team on Tuesday. It appears that he is being brought in to replace Marvin White (Roach is even wearing White's old jersey number), who was one of the four players released on Wednesday.

Roach joined the Lions' practice this morning about halfway through the session. Lawrence Jackson, who also just joined the team, arrived at about the same time after passing his physical.
