Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that former Rams DT Kendall Langford is visiting with the Lions on Monday.
This news comes just a few hours after the Lions announced that they won’t be using their franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There’s no question that it would be wise for Detroit to begin lining up their options at defensive tackle given that defensive tackles Nick Fairley and C.J. Mosley are also set to be free agents next week.
Langford, 29, was released by the Rams last week in a move that freed up $6 million in available cap space. He signed a four-year, $24 million contract with the Rams that included $12 million guaranteed back in 2012.
In 2014, Langford recorded 25 tackles and a sack over the course of 16 games for the Rams. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 36 interior defensive lineman out of 81 qualifying players.
