Lions Free Agency: Detroit Hosts Safety Sean Jones

The Detroit Lions recently hosted safety Chris Crocker, though he left without signing. He was the second safety to visit the team this offseason, with O.J. Atogwe being the first earlier in the offseason. Now, the Lions have brought in a third candidate, according to Adam Caplan on Twitter.

The Lions have a very weak secondary as it stands, though they attempted to address that in the NFL Draft. Still, they lost cornerback Eric Wright and there's not much else to hang their hat on when it comes to the secondary. Many believe it's the weakest part of the team and it'll be hard to find an argument to the contrary.

Jones played in all 16 games for the Buccaneers last year, starting all of them as well. He had 76 tackles, a sack, and three passes defensed, but he's not much of a ball hawk at this point. He's got 17 career interceptions, but hasn't had more than four in a single season since 2008 when he played for the Cleveland Browns.
