Lions Offseason: Detroit Signs Veteran Cornerback Justin Miller

After releasing and voiding the contract of cornerback Aaron Berry on Monday after his second arrest this offseason, the Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Justin Miller. The deal is for one year, according to Lions team blog:

Miller, 28, was a second round pick of the Jets (No. 25 overall) in 2005 out of Clemson. He started 12 games his first two seasons with the Jets, but made his biggest impact as a kick returner. He averaged 26.3 yards per kickoff return as a rookie with one touchdown. He averaged 28.3 yards per return his second season with two more touchdowns, earning a Pro Bowl nod as the AFC's return specialist.

Miller worked out for the Lions on Wednesday and he provides much needed depth to the secondary with the departure of Berry.
