Lions Re-Sign Ross Weaver, Waive Dontrell Johnson

The Lions have waived UDFA CB Dontrell Johnson and re-signed CB Ross Weaver

Johnson was picked up on waivers after minicamp from the Jags. I reported that he looked shaky on Saturday but it was his 2nd practice with the Lions. Pro Day: 5'8" 176 4.47 40 13 BP 1005 Broad 37.5 VJ
4.2 20 6.78 L Drill.

Scenes from training camp

Went to training camp at Allen Park today. Spent time watching the D-Backs. Dwight Bentley was the most impressive of the new corners. He is very smooth and knows the drill and footwork. Chris Houston was sharp breaking up a lot passes. Alphonso Smith started at the right corner with Bentley on the slot. Rookie Dontrell Johnson looked lost and since this was his 2nd practice since being acquired from the Jags, it makes sense.

The highlight was Louis Delmas breaking up a pass for Tony Scheffler and running and sitting in the crowd.

Here are the scenes
