Jim Schwartz discusses Lions' move to claim Pat Lee off waivers

Peter Aiken

The Detroit Lions are pleased with their recent addition of cornerback Pat Lee.

The Detroit Lions claimed cornerback Pat Lee off waiver from the Oakland Raiders and believe he can help the Lions improve.

Coach Jim Schwartz said of Lee, "he's another guy that's got some multi-dimension stuff, and it's very rare that those guys become available." Lee is expected to bolster the Lions secondary and contribute on special teams.

Lee was a second-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in the 2008 NFL Draft. He signed with the Raiders on March 21, 2012 and was their starting cornerback in seven games before Oakland waived him on Nov. 10. In eight games with the Raiders Lee made 30 tackles, defended four passes and intercepted one, all career single-season highs for him.

As Lee spent four season with the Packers, who the Lions play on Sunday, he said he knows a few secrets about Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense that he would be sharing with his new teammates. The Lions host Green Bay at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.
