The Detroit Lions once again addressed the secondary this week, and more specifically, the safety position.

On Friday, the ball club agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent safety Bracy Walker. The deal is worth a reported $650,000.

Earlier in the week, the Lions signed former Ravens' safety Corey Harris and CFL cornerback Perry Walker, establishing a wealth of experience in the defensive backfield. The recent additions will team up with early free-agent acquisition Brian Walker in a completely revamped secondary.

Walker, 31, is a nine-year veteran and was drafted in the 1994 draft (127th overall) by the Kansas City Chiefs. He would make stops with Cincinnati and Miami before re-joining the Chiefs in 1998.

Walker played in 15 games last season for Kansas City, starting none, but made his presence felt on special teams with experience and hard hitting. He is a solid reserve player at the safety position, and will add nothing more than depth to the secondary -- a required asset.

Bracy Walker has tallied 31 career starts, including six interceptions and 208 tackles.
