The Detroit Lions acquired veteran cornerback Carlton Davis III from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, according to multiple reports.

The Lions will also receive sixth-round picks in the 2024 and 2025 drafts, while Tampa Bay will receive a 2024 third-round selection from Detroit.

Davis is slated to earn $14 million in base salary in 2024 in the final season of a three-year, $44.5 million deal.

Davis, 27, spent his first six NFL seasons with the Buccaneers and has nine interceptions, four fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles and 324 tackles in 76 games (75 starts).

He had a career-best four interceptions in 2020 when he earned a Super Bowl ring with Tampa Bay.

Davis played college football for Auburn and was selected in the second round of the 2018 draft.
