The Lions made changes in their secondary on Thursday, signing veteran DB Dante Wesley and releasing SS Randy Phillips.

Wesley, an eight-year pro who has played in 104 career games with the Panthers and Bears, will add versatility to the Detroit "D," as he has experience playing both cornerback and safety. He is also a talented player on special teams. The Lions had cut Wesley at the end of training camp.

Phillips, an undrafted rookie from Miami (Fla.), played in two games this season, recording four tackles.

The way we see it

Head coach Jim Schwartz has to be disappointed in his team's 0-3 start, so he may be bringing in a veteran leader like Wesley to turn around the team's attitude.
