The Lions made a splash at cornerback as free agency opened, agreeing to a deal with Desmond Trufant.

Trufant has agreed to a two-year, $21 million deal with $14 million guaranteed, ESPN's Jordan Schultz reports.

Trufant, 29, was the Falcons first round pick in 2013. He has spent all seven seasons of his career with Atlanta.

The Falcons released him this month after he recorded a career-high four interceptions in nine games last year.
