Detroit Lions To Sign DT Edmon McClam

The Detroit Lions are planning to sign Old Dominion defensive tackle Edmon McClam to a deal, according to the school. McClam joins former college teammate Ronnie Cameron as an undrafted free agent headed to the NFC North, as Cameron is going to sign with the Chicago Bears.

Here's what Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder had to say about McClam signing with the Lions:

"We are thrilled that Eddie is Detroit Lion. He made a solid impression on a number of teams at his pro day at ODU and his individual interviews with various teams," said Wilder. "After consulting with Eddie on the phone this evening, we felt like the Lions presented the best opportunity for him to make an NFL team. We are grateful to all the NFL teams that showed interest with Eddie. It is now time for Eddie to focus on becoming a Detroit Lion."

Given their depth at defensive tackle and on the defensive line in general, it's going to be tough for any new face at that position to make the Lions' 53-man roster. Even so, if a player comes in and performs well and there's no room on the active roster for him, chances are he'll get an invite to join the practice squad (see Ricardo Silva at safety last year).
