Tim Shaw's Visit Reportedly Went Well

Free-agent linebacker and Livonia native Tim Shaw visited the Detroit Lions on Monday. So far, there has been no news of a contract being negotiated or of a signing happening, but Dave Birkett reported yesterday that the visit went well.

Shaw actually was born in England, but he grew up in Livonia. He set several records in high school as a running back that have since been broken by former Michigan Wolverine Kevin Grady.

As a linebacker in the NFL, Shaw has only started one game in his five-year career. This is because his talents are mainly on special teams. The Lions could use a solid depth player at linebacker who excels on special teams, which is why the thinking is that Shaw will be signed at some point. The fact that he is from around here only adds to the speculation that he will get a deal.
