The agency representing former Kansas City Chiefs CB Maurice Leggett says on Twitter that Leggett is headed to the Detroit Lions. No word yet on what type of deal he got from the Lions.
The Chiefs chose not to offer him a tender as a restricted free agent which meant he was available for anyone to sign. That team is the Lions.
This move will reunite him with Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, who was the Chiefs DC in 2008, Leggett's rookie year.
It wasn't that long ago, only three years, that Leggett was the Chiefs top rookie earning the club's Mack Lee Hill Award as an undrafted free agent.
