Lions awarded former Broncos OT Polumbus on waiver claim


Three teams placed waiver claims on tackle Tyler Polumbus, who was awarded to the Detroit Lions on Wednesday.

The Denver Broncos released Polumbus, a third-year pro who started eight games last season, after left tackle Ryan Clady returned to practice this week.

Polumbus was a hot commodity on waivers. In addition to the Lions, the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks also put in waiver claims, according to a league source.

The Lions were awarded Polumbus based on having a worse 2009 record than the other claimants.
