The Lions, lying in wait for the new year ...
While the Detroit Lions wait to hear from the one free agent safety who visited Allen Park, Mich., James Ihedigbo, the team is starting to look into other options to replace Louis Delmas.
According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, Thomas DeCoud is going to visit the Lions on Friday.
DeCoud was the No. 98 pick of the 2008 draft by Atlanta out of California. He played in 89 games for the Falcons, producing 368 tackles, 14 interceptions and three sacks. He was released by Atlanta at the start of the league year.
He made $2.5 million against the cap in 2013 and $1.9 million in cash value.
