Less 24 hours after signing cornerback Dunta Robinson, the Falcons confirmed that they are in discussions to

Chris Houston appears set to be traded to the Detroit Lions for an undisclosed draft pick.

trade cornerback Chris Houston to the Detroit Lions.

The completion of the deal revolves around the compensation that the Falcons would receive and some boilerplate trade language in the deal. The Falcons are set to receive an undisclosed draft pick and perhaps switch positions with the Lions in another round of the draft.

Houston, 25, finished last season on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury.

Houston was a second-round pick (41st overall) for the Falcons in 2007. He has started 37 of 44 games over his career with the Falcons.

He became expendable after the signing of Robinson to a six-year, $57 million contract. In addition to signing Robinson, the Falcons re-signed cornerback Brian Williams, who opened last season as the starting left cornerback before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

The Falcons are also happy with how cornerbacks Christopher Owens and Brent Grimes played down the stretch of last season

just thought it was worth a sunday read.
