Baby steps, kids, baby steps. Detroit finished 0-16 last season, so it's not like new head coach Jim Schwartz can wave a magic wand and fix what ails the franchise. As Ryan Wilson pointed out, it's not like the Lions have done anything sensational this offseason -- but they are quietly improving.
How much? Well, enough that I can say this and not feel like a complete idiot: Detroit's secondary might be decent in 2009. Detroit already added Anthony Henry and nickel-guy Eric King this offseason, and now the Tampa Tribune reports that former Buccaneer Phillip Buchanon has agreed to terms with the Lions.
