The Detroit Lions haven’t added any players in free agency in a few days, but GM Brad Holmes and the team continue to look for additional help on the free agent market. The Lions hosted two veteran defensive backs for official visits.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar and safety Will Parks each had visits with the Lions on the NFL’s official transaction log on Monday.

Dunbar’s presence was an expected one. The former Seahawks and Football Team starter was known to have a visit with the Lions on his schedule, though the actual date was not known. Dunbar, 28, started six games for the Seahawks in 2020 before winding up on injured reserve. He was a full-time starter–when healthy–for Washington in 2017-2019.

Parks split 2020 between Denver and Philadelphia. A sixth-round pick by the Broncos in 2016, Parks has played in 72 career NFL games, starting 18. He played extensively in three-safety looks in Denver and can play any of the three primary safety spots.
