Lions Still Having Discussions With Free-Agent Safeties

The Detroit Lions have put a lot of focus on the safety position this offseason simply in terms of bringing in free agents for visits. None of the visits have resulted in any signings, though. The Lions have brought in Oshiomogho Atogwe, Chris Crocker and Sean Jones, and all three of those players are actually still free agents.

Jim Schwartz said this week that Don Carey is a guy who fits the Lions' profile at safety (he converted to safety from cornerback), and he singled out Erik Coleman as someone who has had a good offseason. In that regard, Schwartz seems pretty pleased with the state of the safety position. Even so, that doesn't mean the Lions aren't still exploring possible additions to help the overall depth at the position.

With the offseason training program now complete, you would think guys like Atogwe, Crocker and Jones will start signing soon in order to be on a roster before training camp begins. Assuming they do start signing, perhaps one of them will land with the Lions, which seem to want to add a bit bit more depth to the safety position.
