Lions sign King, Morris

The Lions have confirmed their first two free-agent signings, running back Maurice Morris and cornerback Eric King.

Morris will serve as Kevin Smith's backup at running back after starting part-time a year ago for Seattle. King, who played under new Lions coach Jim Schwartz in Tennessee, will compete for immediate playing time in the secondary. He played just 10 games last year after breaking his forearm for the second straight season.

Update: Morris' deal is three years, as previously reported, while King signed a two-year contract worth just over $4 million total and $1.7 million in guarantees. King had dinner Friday night with Schwartz and took his physical Saturday morning.

I hope we're still pursuing a big name corner and just not settling for King
