Lions Add New Cornerback, Kicker To Roster

New, comments

The Lions have been busy this week when it comes to making roster moves, and that was the case again today, as a total of four moves were made:

  • The Lions signed cornerback T.J. Rushing, who had played for the Colts all four years of his career (one of which was spent on injured reserve). He took part in a workout on Tuesday, along with three other cornerbacks, and emerged from the group to help with depth in the secondary.
  • To make room for Rushing, the Lions waived cornerback Jahi Word-Daniels, who was just signed on Tuesday. He got hurt during his first practice back with the team, and that was all the Lions needed to see. With depth still a concern in the secondary, bringing in a new (and healthy) face was necessary.
  • Kicker Steven Hauschka was claimed off waivers from the Falcons. He was made 10 of 15 field goals in two seasons with the Ravens (in 2008 and 2009).
  • With a new kicker coming in, the Lions waived kicker Aaron Pettrey, who missed a field goal against the Steelers.
