DeMarcus Van Dyke Works Out For Lions

ALLEN PARK -- The Detroit Lions have worked out defensive backs DeMarcus Van Dyke, Curtis Marsh, Kip Edwards and DeQuan Menzie, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The club could be in the market for a DB, but more likely is doing advance work should someone be needed later.

The most interesting prospect of the bunch is Van Dyke, a corner who blazed a 4.28-second 40-yard dash at the 2011 combine. The Miami star was selected in the third round by the Raiders and played in 14 games that year, starting four, but was released before the 2012 season.

Pittsburgh picked up the 6-1, 187-pounder, but Van Dyke was slowed by a shoulder injury in 2012, then was waived/injured this August after suffering a severe hamstring injury during training camp.

Menzie already was with the Lions once, after being claimed off waivers in May, but the former fifth-round pick was released during training camp. At 5-11, 202 pounds, he can play corner or safety.

Marsh, a former third-rounder out of Utah State, has played in 24 games the past three seasons for the Eagles and Bengals. The 6-1, 197-pound corner played two games this season for Cincinnati but was cut earlier this month.

Edwards is a 6-1, 193-pound cornerback who went undrafted out of Missouri this year. He was picked up by the Buffalo Bills, but cut during training camp.
