Detroit turns the potential loss of veteran cornerback into free-agent gain.

The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms on a five-year deal with free-agent cornerback Chris Houston, according to team insider Tim Twentyman.

One of the team's few bright spots in a suspect secondary, Detroit's precarious salary cap situation lent doubt to whether or not Houston would be retained.

He was among a slew of veteran defensive free-agents on the club, including DE Cliff Avril and S Louis Delmas, both whom remain unsigned as of this posting.

According to the stat gurus at Pro Football Focus, Houston "might just have been the top FA (cornerback) on a crowded market."

The Lions still have several free-agent visits scheduled for Wednesday, including RB Reggie Bush (Miami), DE Jason Jones (Seattle) and S Glover Quin (Houston).
