Temple's Liverpool signs with Lions

Marquise Liverpool 
PHILADELPHIA – Defensive back Marquise Liverpool  became the eighth Temple Owl to sign a rookie free agent contract with an NFL team when he agreed to terms with Detroit Lions.

Liverpool of Ramsey, N.J. was named the Owls' 2010 Special Teams’ MVP, when he started all 12 games at corner last fall, one of just seven Temple players to start every game.

Liverpool is the 10th Owl to join the NFL this preseason.  He joins NFL draft picks DT Muhammad Wilkerson (New York Jets) and S Jaiquawn Jarrett (Philadelphia Eagles) as well as free agent signees WR Michael Campbell (New York Jets); TE Vaughn Charlton (Pittsburgh Steelers); twins LB Elijah “Peanut” Joseph and DT Eli Joseph (Green Bay Packers); LB Amara Kamara (Kansas City Chiefs); OL Colin Madison (Baltimore Ravens); and OL Darius Morris (Houston Texans).
