The Detroit Lions reportedly are looking to fill one of the numerous holes in their secondary with a familiar face.
Houston came to the Lions in 2010 after spending his first three NFL seasons in Atlanta. He had 44 tackles and two interceptions in 14 games (all starts) last season.
Houston is Around the League's fourth-ranked cornerback on the free-agent market. Some Lions fans have been frustrated with his lack of dynamic play-making ability, but there are few players on the market who are as consistent at the position.
The cornerback market is saturated with veterans, and Houston might have looked at the landscape and figured staying home would be the best bet for his future.
With safety Glover Quin scheduled to visit the Lions on Wednesday, Detroit could find itself with a much more settled secondary situation by the end of the week.
