The Detroit Lions are clearly not content with their depth on defense.
In the last couple days, the Lions have added three defensive players a tackle, a linebacker and a cornerback with a combined total of 28 years of NFL experience.
The newcomers include tackle Justin Bannan (6-foot-3, 305 pounds), linebacker Rocky McIntosh (6-2, 235) and cornerback Rashean Mathis (6-1, 200).
Bannan, 34, brings 11 years of experience, including last season with Denver. He was a fifth-round pick by Buffalo in 2002 coming out of Colorado.
McIntosh, 30, has seven years of experience, most recently with St. Louis. He was a second-round pick by Washington in 2006 out of Miami (Fla.)
Mathis, 32, spent his first 10 seasons with Jacksonville, which drafted him in the second round in 2003 out of Bethune-Cookman. Mathis was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2006.
The moves comein the wake of Thursdays lethargic exhibition loss at Cleveland.
