Lions Agree To Deal With Jacob Lacey, Re-Sign Andre Fluellen

Jacob Lacey #27 of the Indianapolis Colts returns an interception for a touchdown.

The Detroit Lions have made two moves on defense, agreeing to a one-year deal with cornerback Jacob Lacey and re-signing defensive tackle Andre Fluellen to a one-year deal of his own.

Lacey visited the Lions last week and called them the frontrunner for his services after it concluded. He had spent the first three seasons of his career with the Indianapolis Colts but wasn't tendered a contract offer this offseason. As a result, his restricted status was lifted, and Lacey decided to join the Lions. Last season, he had 72 tackles, six pass defenses, one interception, one touchdown and three forced fumbles.

Fluellen has been with the Lions since they drafted him back in 2008. He had visited the St. Louis Rams and Cincinnati Bengals since free agency began last week, and he also had a visit lined up with the Miami Dolphins. When asked yesterday about returning to Detroit, he didn't close the door on the possibility, and now he is back with the team.

These two moves improve the Lions' depth on the defensive line and at cornerback. Lacey helps fill the void created by the loss of Eric Wright, and Fluellen's versatility should again be useful since he can play defensive tackle and defensive end.
