Report: Houston being dealt from Atlanta to Detroit

The Detroit Lions have been kicking the tires on some reserve cornerbacks and now they’ve potentially found one that can start for them.

They will ship their sixth-round draft pick to the Atlanta Falcons and the clubs will swap picks in the fifth round in order to acquire veteran Chris Houston.

Atlanta no longer had a need for Houston after signing Dunta Robinson to a big deal. Robinson and Brian Williams are projected to be the starters. Houston was a starter for three seasons in Atlanta. He has three career interceptions. The Lions have a need. They released Phillip Buchanon and Anthony Henry and Will James are exiting in free agency.
