The tweaking continues
The Lions continued to tweak their 53-man roster today. They released defensive end Ikaika Alama-Francis, cornerback Cletis Gordon and wide receiver Adam Jennings.
The team would not confirm a report from the St. Paul Pioneer Press that they had claimed cornerback Marcus McCauley off waivers after he was released by the Vikings.
But the trade of quarterback Kevin OConnell to the New York Jets for an undisclosed future draft pick was confirmed.
