Vikings sign former Lions CB Jacob Lacey

USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings have added a former Detroit Lions cornerback.

Defensive end Lawrence Jackson isn't the only former Detroit Lions player headed to the Minnesota Vikings. He was signed by Minnesota last week, and the Vikings signed former Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey to a deal on Monday.

Lacey joined the Lions last year after spending his first three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He appeared in 11 games for the Lions and made nine starts. He ended up finishing with 36 total tackles, 4 passes defended and 1 interception.

Given how many bodies the Lions have at cornerback, it's no surprise that Lacey wasn't re-signed by them. Chris Houston got a new deal, and the Lions have their three draft picks from last year (Bill Bentley, Chris Greenwood and Jonte Green) ready to take on a bigger role this year. The Lions also just drafted Darius Slay, and Ron Bartell signed at the end of last season.

Assuming Lacey and Jackson both make the Vikings' 53-man roster, they will return to Detroit in Week 1 to face the Lions.
