Lions claimed WR/KR Micheal Spurlock off waivers from the Cowboys.

Spurlock has previously spent time with the Lions and will serve as depth for the regular season finale against the Vikings. He was cut by the Cowboys on Tuesday to make room for Jon Kitna.

Cowboys signed KR/PR Micheal Spurlock.

With Dwayne Harris (hamstring) likely sidelined again, the Cowboys want more upside than the likes of Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley returning kicks. Spurlock has a tie to Dallas in special teams coach Rich Bisaccia, who coached him while with the Bucs and Chargers.

Lions waived WR/KR Micheal Spurlock.

Spurlock is no longer needed after being replaced on kick returns by Jeremy Ross. With Darius Slay (knee) ruled out for Week 14, the Lions have promoted CB Chris Greenwood off their practice squad.

Lions signed WR/KR Micheal Spurlock.

Spurlock can help the Lions' thin receiving corps in a pinch, but he's best known as a kick returner. He holds career averages of 24.7 yards per kickoff return and 9.9 yards per punt return.

The Union-Tribune San Diego believes free agent WR/KR Micheal Spurlock could be an option for the Cowboys.

Dallas' interest level isn't known, but Spurlock has followed new special teams coach Rich Bisaccia around for his entire career. Spurlock, 30, would be nothing more than depth. A return to San Diego also hasn't been ruled out.

Micheal Spurlock caught seven passes for 64 yards in the Chargers' Week 14 win over the Steelers.

Spurlock is a return specialist that had 14 catches all season coming into this one. But he was able to get open on some quick outs and slants with Eddie Royal sidelined and caught all seven of the balls that came his way. Don't expect a repeat performance from the fill-in slot receiver against the Panthers in Week 15.

Chargers claimed WR Micheal Spurlock off waivers from the Jaguars.

RB Curtis Brinkley was waived in a corresponding move. A return specialist, Spurlock made 14 catches for 121 yards in six games with the Jags. He shouldn't crack the Chargers' muddled receiver rotation.

Jaguars waived WR Michael Spurlock and S Chris Harris.

Spurlock had been operating as Jacksonville's No. 3 receiver with Laurent Robinson out for the season. Coach Mike Mularkey singled him out for missing a hot adjustment that resulted in a sack. It was Spurlock's reminder that NFL stands for "not for long." Jordan Shipley appears to be the leading candidate for the third receiver role.

Jaguars signed WR Michael Spurlock and DE Ryan Davis.

Spurlock adds depth at wideout with Laurent Robinson coming off his third concussion since training camp. Davis has been promoted from the Jags' practice squad.

Chargers released KR/PR Micheal Spurlock.

The Chargers needed to clear out a roster spot so they could stash K Nate Kaeding (groin). Chris Carr will support Richard Goodman and Eddie Royal in the return game.

Chargers signed KR Micheal Spurlock, formerly of the Bucs.

The 29-year-old Spurlock holds a career punt return average of 8.1 and averages 25.1 yards on kickoff returns. Almost strictly a special teamer, Spurlock will compete with Roscoe Parrish and Richard Goodman for one or two roster spots, depending on how many receivers San Diego keeps on its 53-man roster.
Wed, Apr 4, 2012 07:03:00 PM

Bucs declared WR Micheal Spurlock, CB Anthony Gaitor, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, LB Zac Diles, DE Michael Bennett, G Derek Hardman, and T James Lee inactive for Week 12 against the Titans.

Da'Quan Bowers will replace Bennett as Tampa's starting left end. Otherwise, this is a mostly healthy roster without injury excuses.

The Bucs might use WR Michael Spurlock as their third quarterback.

Spurlock, who played some quarterback at Ole Miss, has been getting reps at the position in camp. It's bad news for Rudy Carpenter and Jonathan Crompton, who were thought to be competing for the No. 3 role behind Josh Freeman and Josh Johnson.
Wed, Aug 31, 2011 10:08:00 AM

Micheal Spurlock caught two balls for 46 yards and added an 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the Buc's Week 9 loss to Atlanta.

The 89-yarder was a sure loss after Spurlock muffed the kick, but he somehow recovered and took the ball all the way down the right side for the score. There was also a 66-yard return, but Spurlock won't see enough targets to be a factor outside of return-yardage leagues.
