NFL: Lions acquire CB Houston from Falcons
DETROIT — The Detroit Lions have traded two late-round draft picks to acquire cornerback Chris Houston from the Atlanta Falcons.
Houston, a second-round pick for Atlanta in 2007, became expendable after the Falcons signed Dunta Robinson as an unrestricted free agent.
The Falcons will receive an additional sixth-round pick from Detroit and move up from the 18th spot to second in the fifth round.
Houston has three interceptions and one forced fumble in 44 career games, 37 starts.
