Shaw, currently with the Tennessee Titans, has been used mostly as a special teams guy in his NFL career. He had 13 tackles for the Titans last season, and has only a total of 83 in his entire five year NFL career along with two forced fumbles, fine numbers for an ST specialist. Shaw would be a depth pick up by the Lions, which is never a bad idea.
Shaw would be a local boy for the Lions, having grown up in Livonia, Michigan.
