Lions took a look at Josh Wilson, Aaron Ross

In addition to signing Cassius Vaughn, the Detroit Lions reportedly took a look at two other cornerbacks this week.

It seems the Detroit Lions came into this week with their sights set on signing a cornerback. They did just that on Monday by inking Cassius Vaughn to a one-year deal after he worked out for them, but it turns out he wasn't the only cornerback who was brought in for a closer look.

According to John Keim, cornerback Josh Wilson was also in town to meet with the Lions on Monday. Wilson, who started every game for the Washington Redskins over the last three seasons, actually agreed to a deal with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday. This means he's no longer a free agent.

One player who is still a free agent is cornerback Aaron Ross, who tried out for the Lions this week, according to Jason La Canfora. Ross played in four games last season with the New York Giants before he was placed on injured reserve. That was his second stint with the Giants, as he played for them from 2007-11. In 2012, he was with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

For now, following the addition of Vaughn, the Lions seem to be set at cornerback from a depth standpoint. They could always try to add more talent via the draft, and perhaps they will bring in a player like Ross later in the offseason. As of right now, though, the depth chart is already quite full with Vaughn, Chris Houston, Darius Slay, Bill Bentley, Chris Greenwood and Jonte Green.
