The veteran of the bunch is Antoine Cason. The Lions are in need of a nickel corner and will likely draft one. While that guy develops he can flex in with 28-year-old Cason.

Cason is coming off two injury plagued seasons and is likely done as a full-time starter in the NFL. In his time Cason has recorded 40 or more tackles and 2 interceptions in 6 of his 7 years in the NFL. Keep in mind this is not Madden where a quarterback gets picked off 9 times per game. These are solid stats that the Lions would be happy to have.

The Lions can get Cason for cheap as the Ravens have decided to move on and the corner market has settled.
