Lions Hosted S Duke Ihenacho For Visit

Howard Balzer reports that the Lions brought in free agent S Duke Ihenacho for a visit on Monday.

This comes just a few weeks after Detroit worked Ihenacho out, so they’re clearly keeping tabs on him as a potential addition.

Ihenacho, 28, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent back in 2012. He bounced on and off Denver’s practice squad before signing a one-year exclusive rights contract in 2014. He was, unfortunately, waived by the Broncos but was quickly claimed by the Redskins.

He finished a one-year deal with the Redskins before re-signing to a low-round tendered offer as a restricted free agent back in March of last year. The Giants signed him to a contract this past May but placed him on injured reserve. He was released with an injury settlement back in September.

In 2016, Ihenacho appeared in 15 games for Washington and recorded 66 total tackles and two pass defenses.
