Visits Wrap Up With No Signings

Two more free agents visited Detroit yesterday, wide receiver Shaun McDonald and running back T.J. Duckett, and neither signed before leaving.

The Lions concluded a round of visits with free agents Shaun McDonald and T.J. Duckett Tuesday without signing either player.

McDonald and Duckett arrived at the team's Allen Park headquarters Monday afternoon and met with members of the coaching staff and front office. Both players departed Tuesday and had other visits scheduled.

Both players, if signed by Detroit, would mainly be used in a role capacity.  McDonald can return kicks and would likely be the #4 receiver.  At the same time, he could end up replacing Eddie Drummond if brought on as it appears his time in Detroit may be dwindling.  As for Duckett, he would be in a role for short-yardage situations.  Also, the former MSU standout would add depth just in case Kevin Jones is out for longer than originally expected.

The first real round of signings appears to be over.  Detroit probably won't be very busy until the next round comes.  The only real transaction I could see the Lions making in the very near future is signing Kevin Curtis.  I believe he will end up in Detroit with or without an agent.
