The Lions had former Bengals safety Chris Crocker in for a visit earlier this week, but he wasn’t their only option for veteran help at the position.
Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio reports that former Buccaneers safety Sean Jones also visited the team this week. Jones started 32 games at strong safety for Tampa over the last two years, but he hasn’t generated much interest on the free agent market as of yet. That’s not terribly surprising given that it was far from Jones’ best season and that his own play was overshadowed by the generally bad state of affairs on defense in Tampa last season.
