The available free agent cornerbacks for the Detroit Lions to choose from are dwindling. The latest name off the board is Johnathan Joseph, whose monster agreement with the Houston Texans reportedly includes $23.5 million guaranteed.
Earlier this week, we posted Scouts Inc.'s top 10 free agent cornerbacks, including those who are restricted free agents. That list is down to seven, and there is no indication the Lions are in on negotiations for Nnamdi Asomugha. I've published the amended list below.
Let's not consider these names the Lions' only possibilities. General manager Martin Mayhew is well known for his trading prowess, and it's possible 2010 starter Chris Houston will return. But if you were hoping they would splurge on one of the top two or three cornerbacks available, you're probably going to be disappointed.
