We’ve been waiting for Nnamdi Asomugha to sign so that the other cornerback dominoes could fall in behind him. Perhaps Johnathan Joseph’s deal with the Texans will have the same effect.

The Lions appear to have reached agreement with Eric Wright, formerly of the Browns. Wright is now sporting a Lions hat on Twitter and got a congrats from former Lion Gerald Alexander. NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora confirmed Wright is going to Detroit.

“Lets get it goin Detroit!! Lets flip the script!!” Wright wrote before linking to him intercepting Matthew Stafford in 2009.

We almost forgot Wright was a free agent, but this is a worthwhile gamble.

A year ago at this time, we heard Shawn Springs list Wright as one of the best five cornerbacks in the league. That’s a stretch, but the kid has plenty of talent and had a stretch of excellent play in Cleveland. He’s young and we assume he is coming at a discount price.
