The Lions had a busy Wednesday, making a total of seven changes to their roster. The most noteworthy move was obviously the trade for Lawrence Jackson, but three more moves were made last night.
Safety David Roach was claimed off waivers from the Rams. Roach played in a total of 15 games for St. Louis a year ago and was waived by the team on Tuesday. Roach is taking Marvin White's spot on the team, as he was released on Wednesday. Roach was on the practice field this morning, although he missed the first half of the session.
The third move was that fullback Matt Clapp was released. He was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma and was banged up earlier this week. With the fullback position already in good shape depth-wise, Clapp was expendable, especially since he was injured.
