One of the key areas that the Detroit Lions need to address is their defensive backfield. Buck Stanton over here at cover32.com has come up with his list of top 10 defensive backs that are available as free agents.
Though mine would differ a bit, at least in the case of the Lions they are pretty similar overall. I’m still hoping that the Lions will make a strong push to land Jarius Byrd from the Buffalo Bills to replace the released Louis Delmas. I also think Vontae Davis will end up back with the Indianapolis Colts before it’s all said and done too and the odds of seeing him on the home team sideline at Ford Field is very slim.
One thing you will definitely not find here is any of the Detroit Lions current free agents, but it would be unwise to just forget what Rashean Mathis did for the Lions last year when their young core, including Jarius Slay and Chris Houston faltered.
Take a look at his list, and feel free to chime in below.
