The Detroit Lions take another step in securing their secondary by continuing to host a slew of secondary workouts. Several free agent safeties and cornerbacks have tried out for the Lions in the past few days, but none with the resume of Champ Bailey. It could easily be said that Champ Bailey is beyond his prime as a cornerback, and that is definitely true.
Whether he is in his prime or not is not the question that the Lions have for Bailey. The question is if he can come in and make a difference in an already weak secondary. Without a doubt, he would fit in at least a little bit, if the Lions can get him for the right price. Champ could be the nickleback off of the bench that gives the Lions’ defense the boost they need to succeed.
