Detroit Lions still seek safety; Thomas DeCoud, Chris Clemons visit

Well maybe safety James Ihedigbo will not sign with the Lions. Ihedigbo visited the Lions last week leaving without a contract. However, he seemed optimistic a deal would get done. He hired a new agent earlier this week, but so far no contract with Detroit.

Enter Thomas DeCoud who visits the Lions today (Friday), according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Also Chris Clemons is expected to visit Friday according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

DeCoud, who would have made $4.2 million in 2014, who was cut by the Atlanta Falcons.

The safety, who turned 29 on Wednesday, was a Pro Bowler in 2012 but struggled in 2013. In the last five seasons as the starter in Atlanta he missed just one game.

Safety Chris Clemons was cut by the Miami Dolphins after five seasons there. He started all 16 games each of the last two seasons.

The Lions released Louis Delmas and seek a replacement.

It seemed Ihedigbo, who is 30, was a natural fit because he played the last two seasons with the Ravens where Teryl Austin, who is Lions defensive coordinator, was the secondary coach.
