    Lions' Tavon Wilson: In contention to start at safety

    Wilson and Rafael Bush will compete for the Lion's starting strong safety position this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Back in 2012, then-rookie Wilson played in all 16 games for the Patriots, logging four starts and an equal number of interceptions. In three seasons since, he failed to start a single contest, and picked off just one pass. Now in Detroit, the Illinois product will have the opportunity to reposition himself as an NFL starter this offseason, according to Lions GM Bob Quinn. Glover Quin (ankle) is currently cemented in as their starting free safety, but Wilson will compete with Rafael Bush to patrol the secondary alongside him. However, Bush is the presumptive favorite to win this battle, and the Lions could still further address the safety position in the draft or through the free-agent market.
