Former Cincinnati Bengals safety Chris Crocker visited with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The free agent defensive back left Detroit without a contract and has a scheduled visit with the Cardinals next and possibly the San Francisco 49ers after that.
The Lions are looking to beef up their defensive backfield following a spate of injuries they incurred at the safety position last season. The Lions had also hosted O.J. Atogwe for a visit earlier this year, but he left Detroit without a contract as well.
In his 10-year career in the NFL, Chris Crocker has played for the Browns, Falcons, and Dolphins, as well as the Bengals. To date, he has amassed 476 tackles, 13 sacks, 10 interceptions, 7 forced fumbles, 48 pass breakups, and 1 touchdown.

The Lions, who begin a three-day rookie mini-camp on Friday, confirmed the deals on their website.

It's easy to be conflicted on Terrell Owens. On one hand, he's a self-destructive, irresponsible, absent father with an addiction to attention -- which is probably what landed him on an episode of "Dr. Phil" that taped Monday and aired Tuesday afternoon.
But on the other hand, you have to wonder how much of an impact a difficult upbringing and potential issues...

In what sounds like the greatest hour of television since "Who Shot J.R.?", Allen Wranglers wide receiver Terrell Owens will make an appearance this week with Dr. Phil. This is not a joke. This is not one of those Onion posts where you take two of the most ridiculous things on the planet and bring them together in a sort of, "yea it's funny, but nothing like...

Johnson joined the Bengals in 2008 after spending his first 2 years in the league with the Arizona Cardinals. He played in every regular season and post season Bengals game since, the longest active streak on the team. Along with generating over...
It’s been reported that both the Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets are interested in free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards, but according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer he may not get signed until he’s done rehabbing his knee in Miami.
If Edwards does end up getting signed this offseason, which I believe is likely, he’ll probably only get a one-year deal...
So, I watched T.O.’s appearance on Dr. Phil on Tuesday. And it was just sad.
It was sad seeing a man with little maturity and no sense of responsibility in the midst of ruining the lives four innocent children.
Four children by four different women. You have to ask questions about the decision-making abilities of all involved, especially baby mamas 3 and 4, but in the end, it’s...
Forever controversial, future hall-of-fame wide receiver Terrell Owens went into what was likely his most hostile huddle yet: all of his baby's mommas and Dr Phil as his quarterback. They all gathered to work things out and figure out what is best for the four kids. This was for the kids right?
