According to ProFootballTalk, Drayton Florence is taking first-team reps in practice with the Lions, only three days after getting the boot from the Broncos.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, is reporting Florence filled in at right corner for Chris Houston, who is still recovering from a sprained ankle.

“I was shocked, but he’s out there making calls,” linebacker Justin Durant said, via Birkett. “He’s been playing a long time, he knows what he’s doing.  I’ve got confidence in him.  Everybody here knows who he is so once he gets our terminology down I know he’s going to be good.”

“He’s a veteran player,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “He’s played inside, he’s played outside. He’s got a lot of experience.  Can play press.  He’s got some multi-dimensional skills that we like and like I said he’s very experienced.  He didn’t make it at Denver, but he had a good career before that and we look forward to having him contribute for us.”
