Lions' DeShawn Shead: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shead will start at cornerback for the Lions on Sunday against the Bears, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Shead is drawing the start in place of Darius Slay (knee). Shead has played more than 14 snaps just twice this season, but he's likely in line for a significant role Sunday. He'll figure to see an uptick in snaps so long as Slay remains out.

Lions' DeShawn Shead: Pens deal with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shead signed a contract with the Lions on Wednesday.

Shead has a history with the Lions, having agreed to a one-year deal, and spending training camp and the preseason with the club before being released Sept. 1. The veteran cornerback should serve as a depth option at the position for Detroit.

DeShawn Shead: Released by Detorit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shead was released from the Lions on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Shead had been dealing with the effects of an injury and had struggled to make his presence felt throughout training camp. Factoring in Detroit's strong secondary, Shead's departure from the active roster seemed inevitable.

Lions' DeShawn Shead: Gets one-year deal with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shead agreed to a one-year, $3.35 million contract with the Lions on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Shead was recently cut loose by Seattle after his recovery from a torn ACL kept him out for all but two games last season. The Portland State product is now healthy and proved to be a versatile defensive back who logged playing time at each position in the Seahawks secondary since the team signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012. Shead will initially slot in as the No. 3 cornerback in Detroit behind Darius Slay and Nevin Lawson, though it's possible that the Lions' 2017 second-round pick, Teez Tabor, could push him for playing time before long.

Seahawks' DeShawn Shead: To be released Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks plan to release Shead on Monday after his contract tolls for 2018, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Shead spent the bulk of the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list which means he he would have played the 2018 season at the same contract amount he earned with the team in 2017, Crabtree said. The Seahawks granting his release after the contact tolls will allow him to test the market as an unrestricted free agent. Seattle apparently has some interest in bringing back the 29-year-old, but the oft-injured cornerback is also likely to draw interest from elsewhere.
