Burning Question: Is the secondary finally improved?
The Detroit Lions have had one of the worst secondaries in the league for a number of seasons. Each year we keep thinking it'll finally be the year that they work to fix the secondary, and each year we're proved wrong.
Well, the 2013 offseason may have finally been that year. Not only did they re-sign Louis Delmas and Chris Houston, but they made some huge improvements via free agency and the NFL draft too.
In free agency, they signed Glover Quin away from the Houston Texans. He should start right away at free safety opposite Delmas.
In the draft, they used their second-round pick on Darius Slay, an extremely talented cornerback from Mississippi State. He also should start from day one opposite Houston.
With Slay, Quin, Houston and Delmas leading the way in the secondary, the Lions may have finally fixed their biggest issue.
