Trufant, 30, was released by the Detroit Lions earlier this week a year after signing a two-year $21 million contract. Trufant made the All-Rookie team in 2013 and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2015. His career-high in interceptions came in 2019 with four in only nine games played. He only played in six games in 2020 due to a lingering hamstring injury.
