Marcus McCauley is a Lion

Marcus McCauley didn’t have to wait long to find a new gig.  Less than a day after being waived by the Vikings, the former third-round draft pick has been picked up by the Detroit Lions.

McCauley wasn’t good enough to crack a Minnesota cornerback rotation that includes penalty-prone Benny Sapp, newly-acquired Karl Paymah and rookie Asher Allen.  But he is considered a talented player who, in the right system, could excel.

Unfortunately he is now with the Lions, where the words “defense” and “excel” seldom wind up in the same sentence.
