Lions Meeting With Chargers OL Matt Slauson Friday


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Lions are hosting Chargers free agent OL Matt Slauson for a visit on Friday.

This is the first reported interest in him since the free agent market officially opened.

Slauson, 32, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jets back in 2009. He spent four years in New York before signing on with the Bears in 2013.

The Chargers elected to sign Slauson to a two-year, $3 million contract in 2016 and he’s now testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2017, Slauson appeared in seven games for the Chargers and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 53 guard out of 78 qualifying players at the time he was placed on injured reserve.
