It’s not the big move that Lions fans are hoping for, but according to the National Football Post Detroit met with free agent linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba today.
Known as a special teams extraordinaire, Ekejiuba will visit with the Seattle Seahawks later this week and reportedly has interest from the Cleveland Browns as well.
After his surprising release from the Raiders on July 8 the 28-year old, six-year veteran is looking to latch on with a team before the start of training camps, which begin this week and next.
In 32 games over the past two seasons, Ekejiuba has 24 tackles, a blocked punt and a forced fumble.
Is a Chiefs-Lions trade in the works?
According to multiple reports, the Lions are interested in acquiring Chiefs safety Jarrad Page to play opposite Louis Delmas in Detroit’s secondary. Page has demanded a trade and the Lions’ defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham was in charge of Kansas City’s defense when the Chiefs drafted Page in the 7th round in 2006.
It is believed that Page could be had for a mid-round pick, though teams are sure to attempt to pry him from the Chiefs for a lower pick first.
