The Lions’ quiet start to free agency has now grown a little louder, with an addition to the secondary.
Former Seahawks defensive back Deshawn Shead has signed with Detroit. It’s a one-year, $3.5 million deal, with up to $3 million more in incentives.
Shead had played both cornerback and safety in Seattle, and he was a starter in 2016. But in the playoffs after that season he suffered a torn ACL, and he played in only two games last year.
