NFL Cornerback/Detroit Lions
PRO: Fisher re-inked a three-year deal with the Lions March 12, 2008 after recording a career-high 85 tackles during his first year with Detroit in which started 13 of the 16 games he played last year. He originally signed a one-year deal with the Lions March 13, 2007 as an unrestricted free agent. In his first five years in the NFL, he started 53 of 56 games for the St. Louis Rams. In his first two seasons (2002-03) for the Rams, he thrived in a defensive system under now Bears' Head Coach Lovie Smith that was similar to the defense that the Lions employ under Head Coach Rod Marinelli. Fisher established highs in 2003 with 75 tackles (54 solo) and 11 pass defenses while tying for the team-lead with four interceptions. He returned two of his interceptions for touchdowns (57, 74) and also tied for the NFL lead with 205 total interception return yards. Fisher was drafted by the Rams in the second round (64th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Central Florida.
