Detroit Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson is expected to sign a two-year deal worth about $10 million, according to multiple reports Tuesday. He was a fifth-round pick out of USC in 2014. The addition of Kennard gives Detroit some experienced insurance in case they lose any of their veterans to the open market.

Additionally, the Lions' defensive scheme figures to include a 3-4 formation at times, requiring Detroit to keep more linebackers in reserve.

Kennard, 26, is an edge-rushing linebacker formerly with the New York Giants.

The Lions re-signed a couple of key pieces to their secondary. The former New England Patriot originally signed with Detroit as a free agent in 2016. In 107 career games (12 starts), he has totaled 87 total tackles (63 solo), one sack, one interception, five pass defenses, one forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and 86 special teams tackles.

Being a former Patriot, the re-signing of Tavon Wilson makes a lot of sense for Detroit considering he's experienced in Patricia's defense scheme having spent his first four seasons in the National Football League as a backup in New England.
