Lions Free Agency: Detroit Will Host LB Tim Shaw Next Week

The Detroit Lions are making some noise in free agency this year, between hosting so many players and signing Calvin Johnson to one of the richest contracts in NFL history. They'll be hosting a less prestigious player next week according to FOX Sports' Aaron Wilson, linebacker Tim Shaw.

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.
