The Lions have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with free agent cornerback Jacob Lacey, according to sources.
Lacey, 24, has started 27 games for the Colts over the last three seasons playing primarily left corner. He had 72 tackles and one interception in 15 games with the Colts last season.
Lacey visited the Lions’ Allen Park training facility last week after he wasn’t offered a restricted free agent tender by the Colts.
He will more than likely compete to fill the starting cornerback spot vacated by Eric Wright, who left after signing with the Buccaneers.
The Lions have also re-signed defensive tackle Andre Fluellen to a one-year deal.
Last season, Fluellen had 11 tackles off the bench for the Lions. He appeared in 13 games and forced one fumble.
He’s been a valuable reserve for the Lions over the years because of his ability to play all four positions along the defensive line.
Fluellen was third-round pick by the Lions in 2008.
