Lions Officially Trade for Chris Houston

Multiple news outlets are reporting that the Lions have officially traded for Falcons cornerback Chris Houston.  I guess whatever delay there may have been was resolved quickly, because Houston is now a member of the Detroit Lions.

The compensation that was originally reported by Adam Schefter hasn't changed.  Atlanta will receive a sixth-round pick from the Lions and the two teams will swap their fifth-rounders.  All picks involved are for this year's draft.

Suddenly the Lions' secondary is starting to take shape with the additions of Houston and Jonathan Wade.  I'm sure the Lions aren't done, but like I said earlier, this is a great start.
