CBS DETROIT – Having successfully addressed their need for a wide receiver Wednesday, reports say the Detroit Lions now appear close to shoring up their deficiency at the safety position as well.

Multiple outlets reported that James Ihedigbo of the Baltimore Ravens is visiting Detroit, where the former defensive backs coach of the Ravens, Teryl Austin, is now the defensive coordinator.

Last season Ihedigbo recorded 101 tackles, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and three interceptions. He played in all 16 games, which he has done for three straight seasons. Ihedigbo spent the first three years of his career with the New York Jets, played for the New England Patriots the next year and was in Baltimore the last two seasons.

Soon the 30-year-old safety could be adding Detroit to his resume.

Safety became a definite need for the Lions when they released Louis Delmas earlier this offseason. Delmas played every game for Detroit in 2013 and turned in 64 tackles.
