Lions Preseason: Cornerback Competition Heating Up For Detroit

Detroit Lions cornerbacks Bill Bentley and Jacob Lacey are in a battle for a starting position on the defense. Defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham says that the coaches are still evaluating that competition and that they'll make a decision when they're ready:

"Well, we’re going to let it play out," defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham said after practice Wednesday. "We’ve got a lot of personnel meetings that come within the next week and a half. Jim’s involved as are all the personnel and coaches. We’ll have to make the decision at the right time."

Bentley was a third round selection by the Lions in the 2012 NFL Draft, while Lacey is entering his fourth NFL season.
