Safety Chris Crocker Visiting Detroit Lions, According To Report

According to Jason La Canfora, a reporter for NFL.com, free agent safety Chris Crocker is visiting the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

Crocker could also be a good fit with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Lions drafted three defensive backs in last month's draft, but still have a pressing need at the safety position. Crocker was cut by the Bengals in early April due to concerns of his ability to play coming off of knee surgery. The ten-year NFL veteran played in 16 games for the Bengals last season, with 61 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 5 pass deflections.

Safeties Louis Delmas and Amari Spievey started the majority of the games at the position for the Lions in 2011.

Other free agent safeties still on the market include Deon Grant, Jon McGraw and Yeremiah Bell.
