Lions to bring in veteran CB for workout

Saturday, May 16, 2009

Steve Wyche of is reporting that the Lions will bring in veteran CB Rod Hood on Monday.  After the 5'-11", 198-pounder was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2003, Hood caught on, and saw spot duty for four seasons.  He then signed as a free agent with Arizona, and started nearly every game in 2007 and 2008.  They then released him late last month for cap relief.  A former walk-on at Auburn, Hood has climbed a mountain that very few can climb.  On a roster crying out for veteran starting corners on the right side of 30, Hood could be a perfect fit.  However, he's already met with the Bengals and Browns.  A good fit Hood may be, but Mayhew steadfastly refuses to pay more than a player is worth--and so will not be drawn into a bidding war for Rod Hood.
