Detroit Lions host Defensive Player of the Year for CFL, 2 cornerbacks
The Detroit Lions are actively exploring options to bolster their roster as they hosted workouts for three notable players this week: cornerbacks Thomas Graham and Jace Whittaker, and edge defender Mathieu Betts. While no signings have been confirmed as of yet, these visits reflect the Lions‘ commitment to strengthening their team, particularly as they gear up for a playoff run.
Lions Host Trio of Players
Betts, coming off an impressive season with the CFL’s BC Lions where he was named the top defensive player of the year, is an intriguing prospect. His league-leading 18 sacks in 18 games position him as a potentially valuable asset to the Lions' defensive lineup if they choose to sign him.
Graham, a former sixth-round pick for the Chicago Bears, showed potential in his limited playing time, while Whittaker, an undrafted talent who spent three years with the Arizona Cardinals, has not yet had much action in the league.

As the Lions eye a strong finish to the season and a successful playoff run, moves like these could prove crucial in their quest for excellence.
