Lions add Nathan Vasher

The process of signing vested veterans has begun.

Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News reports that cornerback Nathan Vasher has agreed to terms with the Lions, a day after the Lions lost to the team for which Vasher played for six years, the Bears.

Vasher worked out for the Lions last week.  If he had been signed, his full-season base salary essentially would have been guaranteed.

The Lions developed a stronger need for Vasher on Sunday, when defensive back Aaron Berry suffered a shoulder injury. 

Vasher signed with the Chargers in the offseason after being cut by the Bears.  The Chargers cut him on September 4.
