Detroit Lions Reportedly Sign CB Alonzo Lawrence

Although they did pick three cornerbacks in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions aren't suddenly going to stop taking a look at potential help in the secondary. That is why they have decided to sign undrafted free agent cornerback Alonzo Lawrence, according to Mike Herndon.

Lawrence most recently played for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. He landed there after signing with Alabama out of high school and later transferring to Southern Miss. Now, he is set to join the Lions as an undrafted free agent.

Herndon asked Lawrence why he picked the Lions, and his response was this: "I just like their team." The Lions certainly aren't a bad team to sign with if you're a cornerback, even with the three draft picks being used on that position. Secondary help is always welcomed, and as is often the case, you may end up on the practice squad if you don't make the 53-man roster.
