Detroit Lions prioritize safety: Head coach Dan Campbell looks to bolster secondary ahead of 2024 season.

Dan Campbell: Safety Help Still Needed

The Lions have recently made some changes to their cornerback group by signing Amik Robertson and trading for Carlton Davis. However, they have yet to add any safeties to the mix since the end of last season. Head coach Dan Campbell addressed this issue during a press conference last week, hinting that they are in the market for more players at this position.

Kerby Joseph and Ifeatu Melifonwu are expected to return to the secondary in 2024, but Campbell emphasized the team’s need for additional safety help. While 2023 second-round pick Brian Branch can play safety, the team has been utilizing him in the slot position since his arrival in Detroit. Campbell acknowledged that players like Justin Simmons and Quandre Diggs are available in free agency, but the Lions may opt for younger prospects by targeting safeties in the upcoming draft.

The Lions’ focus remains on strengthening their safety lineup for the upcoming season. The team is actively searching for options to bolster their safety group and are keeping their eyes open for potential additions. Campbell mentioned that they are looking to bring in more competition in that area to improve the roster. The Lions have already signed Amik Robertson and traded for Carlton Davis, but they still need more help on defense before they can compete at a championship level.
