Lions sign punter Blake Clingan after workout


Lions have signed their punter for 2013, with UCF's Blake Clingan.

      We reported earlier, punter Blake Clingan was in Allen Park for a workout Tuesday morning, and as reported by Dave Birkett, of Detroit Free Press, he has signed with the team. Clingan has yet to play for an NFL team after playing for the University of Central Florida from 2007-10.

      He has been training in Florida the past year for his opportunity for the NFL. In his senior year at UCF, he averaged 41.8 yards on 39 punts with a long of 61 yards.

      The Lions tied for 30th in the NFL for net punting average using Nick Harris, Ben Graham and Jason Hanson in 2009.

      Highlight taped of Clingan in college can be found here and here.
