After speculation that Rashied Davis would re-sign with the Chicago Bears, it appears that Davis has accepted a one-year deal from the Lions. The 32 year old Davis had been in Chicago since the 2005 season. His playing career started out in the Arena Football League where he spent four seasons. Davis has never really been a big time receiver, the past two seasons he’s only put up a total of 14 catches for 119 yards and one touchdown, like I said nothing to be impressed by. It appears that Davis is going to be expected to contribute mostly on special teams and occasionally as wide receiver when needed.
After signing Justin Durant late last night, it looks like the Lions might still be in the running for Johnathan Joseph and could even possibly be the forerunner for him. ESPN’s John Clayton reported Wednesday night that the Lions appear to have a great chance of landing Joseph. Earlier today there was some talk that Joseph had agreed to a deal with the Houston Texans, but in the end that turned out to be false. It’s pretty well known that the Texans are leading the race for Nnamdi Asomugha, so if they are able to sign him that would pretty much take them out of the running for Joseph.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press responded to a question about Stephen Tulloch earlier with the response “I’m hearing the Lions are out on Tulloch. Hopefully more details soon”. This is far from concrete evidence that the Lions are out of the race for Tulloch, but it’s hard to know when no one’s really releasing any information.
Hopefully I’ll be able to report back to you guys later with some more information.
