Lions sign former Rams receiver Dominique Curry

Posted by ttwentyman on July 23, 2012 – 6:04 pm

The Lions receivers’ room is becoming quite crowded with the news that the team added receiver Dominique Curry on Monday. The Lions now have 13 receivers on their 90-man roster.

Curry spent the last two seasons with the Rams after they signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2010 out of California (PA). He played in 16 games with the Rams last season, almost exclusively on special teams, where he had 10 tackles and was a solid performer. Curry did not record a reception.

    If he’s that good of a special teamer you have to wonder why the Rams let him go, even with the coaching change. You would think the new regime would value a player that’s such a good contributer on ST. In terms of the Lions signing him, whether he sticks or not, at least it shows they are serious about improving the unit. Now if they can just secure a quality consistent return man…

    This makes no sense, why would they have so many wide outs when they can’t keep them all. Why aren’t they going after more defensive players!?? God! By now everyone knows we have a great offense, when are they going to dedicate resources to defense. They need to teach some of these “talented” wide outs how to play cornerback!!

    Ilike what the lions are doing,giving theirselves options in training camp to try different players in different schemes.

    Isee here they drafted a new player dominic curry hope he will be a good thing for the lions i just read the post about stafford it was quite the article, i sure hope he can put the lions on their way to the superbowlo this year. hope all the nwe ones will perform as well.still wish they had barry back, who knows his son just might come and be a lion,s player. that would be great. this new reiff guy looks healthy enough sure hope he can perform. but i dont hear much about a running back, dont they have a running back just was a bad thing that berry done but they cant keep doing those things and expect to have a job, it looks bad for the team.hope coach schwartz can get this team ready to play football by Aug. i can hardly ive said time and time again i really would like a set of tickets to be within my budget to buy, im so broke i cant even pay attention. well enough said by me. thank you Tim for letting me spout off, and i hope u do read my comment,s and not just deleat them.THE LIONS HAVE THE BEST LOOKING COACH IN THE ( N F L ). YOU GO COACH SCHWARTZ..

    Really struggling with this one. U cant tell me that theres not one or more viable cornerbacks out there looking for a home? Really…..our biggest problem is in the DB area, why are the Lions not adressing that? again, I dont get it GO LIONS

    With 13 WR’s you’d think one of them might be CB material….

    I’ve seen this guy in action at Cheyney University. Even when the team was down or not playing up to par, he made plays, moved the ball, and can get open with his athleticism. The coachs over in STL played it safe, but never gave him a chance to play WR.
    For The Lions Coaching Staff. Give this man a chance, and you will not be disappointed.
