Lions Free Agency 2012: Pro Bowl Coverage Specialist Corey Graham Visits Detroit

The Detroit Lions have been relatively active in hosting free agents this offseason, looking to bolster its defense, particularly at defensive back. One way they might be able to add some low rent depth there is by taking a look at former Chicago Bears Pro Bowl coverage specialist Corey Graham, who is also hoping to play more at his natural cornerback position in 2012.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Lions might be able to ransack the Bears' special teams for a second straight season:

The Detroit Lions raided division rival Chicago Bears for one of their best special teams players last year in Rashied Davis, and they could lure away another one this off-season.

Corey Graham, who was voted to the Pro Bowl as a coverage specialist last year, made a free-agent visit to the Lions today. Graham left town without a contract, but the 26-year-old said he would have no problem switching uniforms.

Graham had three interceptions last season in limited action, but hasn't started a game since 2009 when he started nine and finished with a pick and a fumble recovery to go along with 70 tackles.
