Detroit Lions Square Peg Brigade: 6th Installment in a Series

Here’s the long-awaited sixth installment of the “Square Pegs Brigade” series, where we discuss the 23 players added to the Lions roster in 2010 by any means other than the draft.

The main theme here is that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

I define a square peg as a player who got bumped off another roster for any of a myriad of reasons like depth, free agency or a change in schemes where a player no longer fit.

In this installment, we will study CB Brandon McDonald, OG Donald Thomas, CB Nathan Vasher, OT Tony Ugoh, LB Isaiah Ekejiuba and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch.

Where did these square pegs come from, and what do they bring to the Lions by way of contributions?

Before we begin, I’d like to thank Pro Football Focus, The Associated Press and NFL.com for the stats and info cited herein.

By now, you know the drill, so let’s ruck up and do this!
