    Lions sign Nickell Robey-Coleman

    The #Lions are signing free agent CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, source said, after the former #Eagles CB worked out for them for today.
    via Ian Rapaport

    After a difficult season in Philadelphia in 2020, the market for Robey-Coleman was light, but he had his three most successful seasons (PFF grades of 74.5, 79.8, and 80.5) the three years prior when he was in Los Angeles with the Rams and coached by Lions defensive backs coach Aubrey Pleasant.

    With offseason free-agent additions CB Quinton Dunbar and NB Corn Elder both currently unavailable, the Lions needed some veteran depth in the secondary. Dunbar has been out with a personal matter, while Elder was injured last week and has yet to practice since last Friday. Neither have a timetable to return at this time.

    Mike Ford looks locked into the starting nickel spot right now, but if Elder is out for an extended period of time, Robey-Coleman could challenge immediately for the reserve job and potentially the teamís DIME option.

    CB help is always accepted. If he doesn't return to form it won't change much for the defense, but if he does it will make for a nice boost. Worthwhile flyer.

    Iím guessing that this move puts Corn Elder on notice. Sounds like heís having a rough camp so far.
