Paul Spicer Visiting Lions

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

John Niyo reports via Twitter that journeyman defensive end, Paul Spicer is visiting the Lions.

As Niyo also reports, nothing is imminent. I believe (someone back me up on this) that Spicer is a vested veteran and now that week one is over, he is free to be signed for non-guaranteed money.

Spicer, a Saginaw Valley State grad, is originally from Indianapolis and went undrafted in 1998. He jumped from the Seattle practice squad to the Saskatchewan Roughriders to his NFL game debut in 1999 with the Lions.

Spicer had 7.5 sacks in 2005 but now, at 34, is seen mostly as a reserve/rotational player.
