Detroit Lions: OT Kevin Haslam signed; was released by Patriots last week

Another day, another new player.

The Detroit Lions have signed offensive tackle Kevin Haslam. To make room on the roster they released OT Austin Holtz.

Haslam spent last season with the San Diego Chargers playing in five games with three starts. He was released on May 21. He was claimed off waivers on May 23 by the New England Patriots who released him on Thursday.

He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars following the 2010 draft. He played in five games as a rookie before he was put on injured reserve.

The Lions have an opening at right tackle with a battle between Jason Fox and Corey HIlliard for the start.

Coming off  a 26-4 preseason loss, the Lions are preparing to play the Patriots on Thursday night at Ford Field.

The Lions are playing musical chairs with O-linemen. Cut one loser and pick up another cast off that was cut by somebody else. Pay these guys a few thousand bucks to be cannon fodder, and they'll eventually get cut too. So what exactly is the point? The good teams are working on having their O-line gel together for the regular season. The Lions don't seem to have a clue.
