Lions Hosted CB Josh Gordy For A Visit, Worked Out 6 Players

Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Lions worked out six players including: CB Bill Bentley, WR Corey Washington, LB Khaseem Greene, DB Danny Gorrer, CB R.J. Stanford and S Brock Vereen.

  • Detroit also brought in CB Josh Gordy for a visit, according to Wilson.
  • The Lions wound up signing Bentley, Washington, and Greene to contracts.

Gordy, 28, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan back in 2010. He has since played for the Packers, Rams, and Colts.

The Giants signed Gordy to a contract back in April, but he was later placed on injured reserve back in September. New York cut him loose just a few weeks after.

In 2014, Gordy appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 24 tackles, one interception and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 284 total snaps last year.

Stanford, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Carolina Panthers. He spent a little over two years with the team before he was placed on waivers at the start of the 2012 regular season.

Miami later claimed him off of waivers, but they elected to not tender him a contract the following year.

The Lions actually signed him signed him in July before cutting him loose at the start of the season.

In 2014, Stanford appeared in five games for the Dolphins and recorded 12 tackles, one interception and two pass defenses.
