The Detroit Lions worked out a couple cornerbacks on Tuesday, according to reports this morning.
- Aaron Wilson reports that former Eagles cornerback Curtis Marsh is among the players trying out for Detroit.
- Josina Anderson of ESPN has confirmed with Ellis Lankster‘s agent, Anthony Paige, that his client is working out for the Lions.
Marsh, 26, recently worked out for the Titans, but nothing ever came from his visit. He’s a former third-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2011 who spent two years with the team before he was placed on waivers back in September of last year.
Marsh later signed on with the Bengals, but eventually returned to Philadelphia in November. He was unable to make the final roster a month ago and was released again. Last year, he appeared in three games, but did not register a single statistic.
Lankster, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills, but he lasted just over a year with Buffalo before he signed on with the Jets in 2011.
Lankster was just recently cut loose by New York, so they are obviously more than familiar with what he brings to the table. Last year, Lankster appeared in 15 games and totaled 18.
