McQuarters, Schulters, Law On Lions Radar

Even after a quick, early start by the Lions secondary, President and General Manager Matt Millen is not done tinkering with the lineup at those positions. With the availability of R.W. McQuarters, Ty Law and possibly Lance Schulters, Lions' insider Mike Fowler writes that Detroit hasn't written off any possible upgrades.

ALLEN PARK - Even after a quick early start by the Lions secondary, President and General Manager Matt Millen is not done tinkering with the lineup at those positions.

Millen confirmed yesterday that cornerback/return specialist R. W. McQuarters would come in last night and visit today and that he has interest in Titans safety Lance Schulters "if he becomes available."

He also reiterated his interest in former Patriots corner Ty Law at the right price and if he is healthy. Millen seems to be taking the approach that Detroit will stockpile as much talent as possible and let the chips fall where they may in training camp for roster spots.

Millen said projecting who might be released after June 1st is a difficult thing to do. "We go through everybody (who seem likely to be released) and look at contracts," said Millen, "you look at what makes sense for teams, but what makes sense to us on somebody's roster doesn't always make sense for them."

"Somebody could be there and if they are, and it makes sense for us, then we'll try to do it," Millen stated.

Millen said Law continues to be at the top of his list. "I still would like to do something with Ty Law, I haven't forgotten about that." He added though that "there's a lot of stuff involved. He's got to get ready to play."

When asked about R.W. McQuarters, who is visiting Lions camp today, Millen said "that is somebody I'd be interested in," but he indicted that former Eastern Michigan tackle L.J. Shelton is not someone on his interest list at this time.

He said that Schulters would draw his interest "if he's out there, we'd kinda of have to evaluate exactly where we're at with him because he's a strong [safety], but we'll look at all of them, if he can make us better we'll do it."

Schulters agent, Brian Levy believes the Titans will hold on to his client for at least a few days past the June 1st date. "I think they want to see what becomes available (after June 1) and see if they want to take something there," Levy told the Tennessean. "Lance is somebody who might finance that package for them by cutting him.''
