Colts signed CB Marcus McCauley and waived CB Thad Turner.

McCauley is familiar with Indianapolis' scheme after stints in Detroit and Minnesota's similar defenses, but he's only replacing Turner as a camp body.

Redskins waived CB Marcus McCauley.

The 72nd overall pick in 2007, McCauley is on the brink of falling out of the league. He couldn't beat out Byron Westbrook for the sixth corner job.

Redskins signed CB Marcus McCauley.

McCauley was dumped by the Saints just a week ago and the Redskins jumped on him. He's a project with talent.

McCauley is unlikely to be a game-day active, nor is he a good bet to last long on the Saints' roster.

Bucs released CB Marcus McCauley.

He was dumped in favor of Mike Mickens, who the Bucs signed off the Cowboys' practice squad. McCauley has serious talent, but has never been able to put it together in four in stints with four different NFL clubs.

Buccaneers signed CB Marcus McCauley.

McCauley was unable to last more than three weeks in Detroit's league-worst secondary, so he's not going to be an asset in Tampa.

Lions released CB Marcus McCauley.

McCauley was claimed off waivers from the Vikings earlier this month. It's not a good sign that he was unable to work his way into Detroit's woeful cornerback picture.

Lions claimed CB Marcus McCauley off waivers from the Vikings.

McCauley was a third-round pick in 2007. He has good size and speed and should be able to help the Lions right away. Lord knows they need it.

Vikings waived CB Marcus McCauley.

McCauley's role diminished in each of his two seasons with the Vikings. The 2007 third-round pick has an excellent size/speed combination, however, and figures to get claimed on waivers. He'd profile perfectly in Oakland.

Vikings CB Marcus McCauley is considered a long shot to make the roster this season.

The team has soured on the 2007 third-rounder who spent much of last season as a game-day inactive. Third-rounder Asher Allen's arrival has created a logjam at cornerback where he will compete with Charles Gordon, Karl Paymah, and Benny Sapp for nickel back duties.

Vikings CB Marcus McCauley was inactive Monday night after playing all 16 games last season, including nine starts.

Coach Brad Childress said McCauley was behind after missing preseason practice time with a knee injury. Special teams ability was also a factor. McCauley's status will be determined on a week-to-week basis.

Vikings signed third-round CB Marcus McCauley to a four-year contract.

McCauley is the leader to act as Minnesota's nickel back this year, stepping in outside during obvious passing situations while Antonie Winfield covers the slot. With a good camp, he may push Cedric Griffin to start at right corner.

Marcus McCauley was the Vikings' starting left cornerback in nickel packages as the team ran its OTA practice on Saturday.

McCauley, a third-round pick from Fresno State, ran outside while Antoine Winfield manned the slot. Also in the mix for nickel duties are Charles Gordon and Devonte Edwards, but McCauley has the best natural skill set.
