According to an ESPN report, the Detroit Lions have signed unrestricted free-agent, and former Baltimore Ravens' starting strong safety Corey Harris.

The deal is worth a reported $3.1 million spanning three-years, and includes a $650,000 signing bonus.

Harris, 32, spent the past four seasons with Baltimore, and had his most productive professional season last year. Harris tallied two interceptions and 84 tackles for the Ravens, and was considered an integral part of a stifling Raven defensive secondary.

Harris will likely line opposite Brian Walker, who the Lions signed away from the Miami Dolphins earlier in free-agency. It was unknown who will assume the free-safety position, as both players are traditionally strong safeties.

The signing of Harris likely eliminates the Lions need to re-sign strong safety Ron Rice, who visited with Pittsburgh last week.


The Lions also re-signed offensive guard Kerlin Blaise and defensive tackle Travis Kirschke.
