According to the team's official site, WR David Kircus has been added to the team.
Kircus (6'2", 192 lbs.) was a sixth-round draft choice of the Lions in 2003. He spent two seasons in Detroit, was out of football in 2005, and then spent one season with the Broncos. He was out of football again last season. Kircus is 28 years old.
This is a bad signing in my opinion. For starters, Kircus isn't even good. But more importantly is the fact that he is a "bad character" guy. He was convicted of DUI while playing for the Lions and was charged with felony assault last offseason. Apparently, he punched a man in the face and then said to him, "You don't know what I'm capable of." The victim then had to have surgery to repair facial fractures. The judge ordered Kircus to abstain from alcohol.
(Interesting fact to note: What did Kircus do with his time out of football in 2005? He worked at a fast food restaurant.)
This guy is not worth any amount of trouble that he seems to have a penchant for involving himself in, and I'm disappointed to see that Bill Parcells' "no thugs" policy has already been kicked to the wayside. Talk about hypocritical.
I really hope this guy doesn't make the team.
