CBs are one of the deeper position for the Lions.  You have Houston who is having a pro bowl year, Eric Wright who is having a solid year, Aaron Berry who is playing well.  That did not include Alphonso Smith who has starting ability but is behind because of injuries at the beginning of the season.  Brandon McDonald started for the Browns and is the 5th CB in depth chart.

and that he finds a new team.  He's always been a very good athlete.  I will say I was one who complained loudly and often about his pass coverage skills.  But, he's a Michigan Man who stayed and toughed it out, so I have a lot of respect for him.

I'm sure there are a couple of teams that could use a backup DB.  Kid was kind of a jerk at UM, but he's got some speed, and that goes a long way in the NFL.
