    Lions sign WR Furrey

    April 4, 2006

    ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions signed receiver-turned-defensive back Mike Furrey to a one-year contract Tuesday.

    Former St. Louis Rams coach Mike Martz, now Detroit's offensive coordinator, persuaded Furrey to make the move from receiver to safety last year. Furrey started 11 games at safety in 2005, leading the Rams with four interceptions, including one he returned for a 67-yard touchdown. He also made 55 tackles.

    The Lions listed Furrey as a wide receiver.

    As a rookie in 2003, the Northern Iowa product and former Arena Football League star made 20 receptions for 189 yards in 13 games. Furrey caught only one pass in eight games two years ago.

    Thats a good move for Furrey. Martz always made a spot for Furrey on gameday. Guess he is switching back to wide receiver. Don't know if hes going to get a significant role considering he'll probably be the 4th or 5th receiver.

    If he is switching back to reciever then he will have to lose alot of weight he gained to play safety

    I think he will continue playing safety,Detroit needs help at Safety
