11/02/16 - CB Johnthan Banks, acquired by the Lions from the Buccaneers on Tuesday, is not in Detroit's immediate plans. Eventually, Banks could add a dimension the Lions currently lack in their secondary: size at the cornerback position. At 6-feet-2 and 185 pounds, he immediately becomes the Lions' biggest cornerback, and in time he could fight special teams ace Johnson Bademosi and undrafted rookie Adairius Barnes for a backup spot.
11/01/16 - CB Johnthan Banks was acquired by the Detroit Lions from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday for a seventh-round draft pick. Banks, a second-round pick in 2013, has seven career interceptions in 50 NFL games. All seven interceptions came in his first two seasons. The trade was not a surprise because the 27-year-old Banks had fallen out of favor in Tampa Bay. New Buccaneers defensive coordinator Mike Smith didn't view him as good fit for the defensive scheme.
