Lions Targeting CB Jonathan Joseph?

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen started the speculation that Detroit Lions could be one of the favorites for Bengals CB Jonathan Joseph.

I say watch out for Lions and Bengals FA CB Johnathan Joseph,” he writes.

As ESPN’s KC Joyner points out, Joseph could be a better value than Nnamdi Asomugha.

Joseph has been targeted nearly three times as often as Asomugha over the past two seasons and yet has a lower YPA total. This isn’t to say that Joseph is the better cornerback, but if he can be had for half the cost of Asomugha (or less), it could be a move that provides much more bang for the buck,” writes Joyner.

Detroit really needs help at cornerback and landing Joseph could be another great addition to their solid young defense.
