Detroit Lions work out 2 punters Detroit Lions Hats , special teams ace Don Carey No unit was a bigger disaster for the Detroit Lions on Monday night than their special teamers. Not only did Matt Prater uncharacteristically miss two field goals, but the punt coverage team was by far the worst in the league. The Lions gave up 44 more punt return yards than any other team in Week 1, and that’s just on three returns. In total, the Lions gave up a 78-yard touchdown and a 43 and 16-yard return.It appears the Lions are considering doing something about it. They’ve already waived one of their gunners from Monday, Bradley Marquez, but they could be adding someone soon. According to MLive’s Nate Atkins, special teams ace Don Carey was visiting the Lions on Wednesday, the second time he was at Allen Park in as many weeks. The Lions let Carey go earlier this offseason, and he was scooped up by the Jacksonville Jaguars. However Detroit Lions Hoodie , Carey suffered a hamstring injury during the preseason and was placed on IR. The Jags cut him a week later, making Carey a free agent. Carey could come in and immediately upgrade the Lions’ gunner position. In his seven years with Detroit, Carey was consistently named the team’s special teams MVP by his teammates, and it was a bit curious to see the Lions move on from him this offseason, although Careyis 31 years old. In addition to potentially adding a gunner, the Lions also spent this week looking at some extra punters:Sam Martin looked fine in his season debut, averaging a solid 50.7 yards per punt. One could argue he outkicked the coverage once or twice against the Jets, but the Lions’ coverage teams take most of the blame from Monday’s meltdown. At this point, there’s no indication the Lions are planning on moving on from Martin. Teams regularly work out players just to keep tabs on them in case of emergency. After all Cheap Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , they gave Martin a four year-extension just two years ago. However, it is curious that they brought back Ryan Santoso, who spent all training camp with the Lions and probably doesn’t require much of a scouting update. We’ll see if the Lions make a move before Week 2’s game against the 49ers.Lions roster cuts: Detroit waives OL Leo Koloamatangi, Brian Mihalik Earlier in the day, reports surfaced that the Detroit Lions were awarded offensive linemen Andrew Donnel and cornerback Dee Virgin on waivers Sunday afternoon. The Lions confirmed those additions later in the day, and announced the subsequent moves, as well. Both offensive tackle Brian Mihalik and center/guard Leo Koloamatangi have been waived to make space for the two.Mihalik’s cut doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Donnel, as a swing tackle/guard takes his spot immediately alongside rookie Tyrell Crosby as Detroit’s backup tackles. Letting Koloamatangi go is a little bigger of a surprise. Having already let go of Wesley Johnson, Koloamatangi was figured to be Detroit’s backup center going forward. If need be http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com , the Lions may slide Frank Ragnow to center, use Joe Dahl—who has limited experience at center— or Kenny Wiggins.Either way, Mihalik and Koloamatangi may not be gone long. The Lions still have two spaces left on their practice squad, and if both players clear waivers, they are eligible to fill those spots.
