Here are seven players the Detroit Lions could potentially try and trade for soon

The Detroit Lions recently acquired defensive end Everson Griffen to bolster their pass rush which the team has struggled with all season, stopping the run and putting pressure on the quarterback.

With the Lions at 3-3 and with head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn seemingly on the hot seat at the conclusion of the season, the team will look for ways to bolster the roster to attempt to make a playoff push while saving their jobs in the meantime.

While they improved the defensive line with the acquisition of Griffen, they could still seek for more help in that area which is a place the team has struggled for awhile. The secondary is also an area the Lions could look for reinforcements, especially the cornerback position which has dealt with injuries and poor performance.

Here are players that are seemingly available and that the Lions could target.

Logan Ryan, CB

Logan Ryan would be a valuable piece to the Lions due to his experience playing both cornerback and safety. Prior to signing with the New York Giants for this season to be a safety, he played cornerback as a member of the Tennessee Titans.

His versatility would be valuable to a Lions secondary that has been hampered by injuries and poor play from rookie Jeff Okudah. This season, he’s recorded 44 tackles (33 solo) with five pass deflections, a forced fumble and a sack. He carries a cap hit of $6.5 million.
