ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions signed Shaun McDonald to a two-year deal today, reuniting the free agent wide receiver with former Rams coach and current Detroit offensive coordinator Mike Martz.

In four seasons with St. Louis, McDonald had 106 receptions for 1,215 yards and four touchdowns. He agreed to terms with Detroit last week, and the signing was announced Monday.

McDonald joins a Detroit receiving corps that includes Roy Williams and Mike Furrey. He made just 13 catches for 136 yards and a score last year after two productive seasons. He had 46 receptions for 523 yards in 2004 and three of his 37 catches in 2003 were for TDs.

McDonald was a standout receiver for Arizona State, finishing his college career second on the school’s career list with 2,867 receiving yards.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
