Detroit Lions work out several players

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Free agent safety Jaiquawn Jarrett was one of four players the Detroit Lions brought in for a workout this week.

Seeking to add depth on both sides of the ball, the Detroit Lions brought four players in for a workout on Tuesday according to Adam Caplan of PhiladelphiaEagles.com.

The most prominent name to get the call was former Eagles safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, who will be granted another shot to make Detroit's active roster after a previous workout with the team earlier in the year. A former second-round draft pick out of Temple, Jarrett was released by the Eagles in early September despite suiting up for 12 games the previous season.

The Lions will also welcome three players on the offensive side of the ball this week, including tailback Lonyae Miller and receivers Jaymar Johnson and Max Komar. Johnson has been unable to make a mark in the league since being selected in the sixth-round by Minnesota in 2008, while Miller has also struggled to find a niche after going undrafted out of Fresno State in 2010.

The 25-year-old Komar looks to be the most intriguing of the three potential newcomers on offense, mainly due to his brief NFL experience on special teams. Clocked at a 4.5-second 40-yard dash time coming out of Idaho, Komar returned five punts for the Cardinals as a rookie in 2010. With the Lions currently ranked 30th in the NFL in average kick return yardage (19.6), Komar's ability on special teams could give him a fighting chance to make the roster.
