The Lions may not have had a great 2009 season, but it did improve upon their previous record of 0-16. With another offseason to prepare for the rebuilding and revamping of the Detroit franchise, the Lions have struck quickly with the signing of a former UFL star, Dede Dorsey.
Dorsey, as some of you may remember, was apart of the Cincinatti Bengals’s 53-man roster before being cut following Week One. The show, “Hard Knocks” documented the Bengals’ offseason, including the performance of Dorsey.
With the NFL not accepting Dorsey, he moved to the UFL, where he became a star, and led his team to the UFL Championship. He was named MVP in the final game after his stellar performance en route to the league title. Following the completion of the UFL season, Dorsey was seen working out for the St. Louis Rams and the Cleveland Browns.
Detroit could be the right team for Dorsey, who will need a backup to Kevin Smith, who is also recovering from a major knee surgery.
Dorsey reported on his twitter today the following: “I am the newest member of the…Detroit Lions”.
