Lions Add Another Former Chief

Over the past couple of seasons, it seems the Detroit Lions have made a habit of signing former Chiefs players.  Today it seems they are ready to add another one.  According to PFT, the Lions will sign LB Rocky Boiman.

Boiman played six games for the Steelers last year.  He has previously played for the Chiefs, Colts and Titans.

Boiman, who played for Lions head coach Jim Schwartz when Schwartz was the Titans’ defensive coordinator, worked out for the Lions this summer and was mentioned as a possible replacement for linebacker Jordon Dizon, who was lost for the season with a knee injury.

Not exactly the former Chief that the Lions had in mind just a couple weeks ago.  Back then it was Derrick Johnson as the potential answer to their injuries at linebacker.

When it comes to depth, you can do a lot worse than Boiman, but he isn’t going to help much when it comes to your first and second team defense.
