    Lions sign Don Carey, place Bentley on IR.

    Lions placed CB Bill Bentley (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.
    Bentley went down against the Eagles in Week 6 and it appears he'll need surgery to repair a dislocation. The Lions will move forward with Chris Houston and Jacob Lacey as their starting corners. Bentley, a third-round rookie, should be healed in plenty of time for the offseason program.
    Lions signed DB Don Carey.
    Carey was with the Lions in camp before getting released with an injury settlement. He's on as secondary depth with Louis Delmas (knee) banged up again, Amari Spievey (concussion) in doubt and Bill Bentley (shoulder) out for the year.

    Xavier Rhodes was recruited as a WR at Florida State but was converted to CB his freshman year. He struggled at first but has adjusted really well. Opposing QB's are afraid to throw his way. As a redshirt freshman he amassed 57 total tackles (48 solo, 9 assisted & 3.5 Tackles for Loss) with 4 interceptions & 12 passes broken up. As a redshirt sophomore he amassed 43 total tackles (36 solo and 7 assisted) with 1 INT, 4 passes broken up & 1 QB hurry. This year as a redshirt Junior he has amassed 25 total tackles (20 solo, 5 assisted & 1 TFL) with 2 INT & 6 passes broken up. He stands at 6' 2" and weighs 217lbs He is an excellent shut down corner.

    Florida State Seminoles Overall: 14-0 ACC: 8-0 (BCS National Champions )

    I'd like a larger corner like that. Helps cover bigger guys like Marshall, Jones etc.

    last time Carey was here we used him at S. Or are you talking about Rhodes?

    If you are, yes Rhodes would fit in very well opposite Houston. Get Tony Jefferson in the 2nd round and our secondary will be much improved.

    Rhodes. Carey is just a stop gap imo.

    Aqib Talib was just traded to the Patroits.....He has some character issues but I would have taken him at this point with Bentley out

    Lions fans always complain about the off the field stuff with the players and then want to bring in a guy involved in legal issues the prior offseason and currently suspended for drugs, lol.

    I agree. Carey (if they're using him at CB) will probably be cut whenever Greenwood officially comes back

    I have been a critic of Mayhew in drafting players with character issues but given our needs in the secondary with Bentley out, this may have been a move I would have taken a look at.

    I'm not talking abot some "pedestrian" talent like Nick Fairley or Aaron Berry who shows up every once in a while but basically is an average player that acts up all the time, Aquib Talib is a top 10 CB in this league when he is 100%

    I have not seen the Patriots make a bad trade in a long time. They obviously see something there. If the pick traded was a mid to late rounder, you tell me how you could have better used that pick in the draft?.....for another Johnny Culbreath or Tom Toone??
