The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with free agent safety C.C. Brown, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News is reporting.
Brown went to Detroit today to visit with the Lions, and his agent confirmed that they’ve reached a deal. Brown started seven games for the Giants last season but was benched after a bad game against the Eagles.
Brown was a restricted free agent, but the Giants withdrew their tender offer in April.
Brown will compete with Marquand Manuel, Marvin White, Ko Simpson and Daniel Bullocks at strong safety. Louis Delmas is the Lions’ starter at free safety.
