The Detroit Lions have traded cornerback Jeff Okudah to the Atlanta Falcons.
The trade involves the Falcons sending a fifth-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft to the Lions.
In his first two seasons as a pro, Okudah has struggled with injuries and inconsistent play.
He set career highs in tackles and passes defended and recorded his first pick-six.
The trade represents a fresh start for Okudah with the opportunity to compete for the No. 2 cornerback spot on the Falcons' roster.
Falcons have been active in free agency, adding defensive players like safety Jessie Bates III, defensive linemen Calais Campbell and David Onyemata, and linebacker Kaden Elliss.
For the Lions, the trade allows them to move on from a player who did not live up to expectations.
