Detroit Lions Training Camp News: Team Tried Unsuccessfully To Claim DT Ronnie Cameron From Waivers

Defensive tackle Ronnie Cameron was recently released by the Chicago Bears. It wasn't long, though, before he found a new home with the Cleveland Browns, who claimed him off of the league's waiver wire. Cameron was an undrafted free agent out of Old Dominion.

He was the desire of several teams, including the Detroit Lions, who were unsuccessful in their attempt to secure him. As SB Nation blog Pride of Detroit mentions, the Lions have put in claims for numerous players this offseason, only to see them rejected in favor of teams with a higher standing on the list:

For at least the third time this year, the Detroit Lions have unsuccessfully tried to claim a player off waivers. Earlier this offseason, they put in waiver claims for offensive tackle Kevin Murphy and kicker Kai Forbath, but teams with higher priority on the waiver wire ended up with them.

The Lions will eventually get their chance, of course, at claiming a player they want. But so far this offseason, they've struck out on several occasions.
