The Detroit Lions announced the signing Tuesday of free-agent cornerback Chris Conscios, a league source confirmed to ESPN.
Conte, 26, is the second cornerback acquired by the Lions this offseason.
The 6-foot-2, 207-pound Conte was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
Contes former teammates include Antonio Cromartie, the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year.
The Jets were expected to sign cornerback Dee Milliner and free agent defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson on Tuesday.
Contexis arrival will be contingent upon signing contracts with Detroit.
The Lions currently have seven players on their roster: cornerback Chris Culliver, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, offensive lineman Alex Lewis, defensive tackle Tamba Hali, linebacker Anthony Zettel and defensive back Chris Houston.
