Lions Audition CB Tony Lippett

Defensive lineman Tank Carradine and tight end Clive Walford weren’t the only veteran free agents to work out for the Lions today. Cornerback Tony Lippett also auditioned for Detroit on Wednesday, tweets veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer.

Lippett, who transformed from a collegiate wideout to an NFL corner, was a 13-game starter for the Dolphins in 2016, but didn’t make it through final cutdowns earlier this year after missing the entire 2017 campaign with a torn Achilles. Provided he’s now healthy, Lippett could give Detroit’s secondary a boost, as the club ranks just 29th in passing defense DVOA. While starters Darius Slay and Nevin Lawson have played well, nickel back Jamal Agnew ranks as a bottom-10 NFL corner, per Pro Football Focus, and is now dealing with an injury.

Lippett, 26, has drawn plenty of interest since being cut by Miami, as he’s worked out for the Giants, Jets, Seahawks, and Bills.

Here’s the full list of players the Lions worked out today:
