Lions interested in Chris Clemons, according to report

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions may be targeting Chris Clemons to fill their need at safety.

It looks like the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins could potentially swap starting safeties. Delmas signed with the Dolphins on Monday, and former Dolphins safety Chris Clemons is reportedly drawing interest from the Lions.

Clemons, who Jeremy Reisman looked at earlier on Tuesday, has been in the NFL since 2009. His first five seasons in the NFL were with the Dolphins, and he had 93 tackles, 8 passes defended and 1 interception last season.

While Clemons isn't necessarily viewed as one of the top safeties on the open market, he will likely be a more affordable option than someone like T.J. Ward or Jairus Byrd. The Lions have been connected to Ward a few times now, but Clemons seems like a more realistic option for them.
