Lions unlikely to trade for Cromartie

The Lions had spoken with the Chargers over the weekend about a possible trade for former first-round pick Antonio Cromartie. But, despite needing help in its secondary, Detroit is unlikely to consummate a deal when the league year begins March 5.

The Lions have a deep need at corner and Cromartie, who has fallen out of favor in San Diego, could be a free-agent option if he is released.

Adam “Pacman” Jones, who recently worked out for the Bengals and is planning to showcase himself for NFL scouts March 19, could be a strong possibility as well.

Jones was a first-round pick of the Titans when Lions coach Jim Schwartz was the defensive coordinator with Tennessee. The Lions are likely to have scouts heading to Jones’ workout in a few weeks.
