Lions, Texans Interested In Ricky Wagner

After learning that the Vikings and Bears would have some interest in free agent offensive lineman Ricky Wagner, it looks like we can add another pair of teams to the list of potential suitors. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports (via Kevin Patra of that both the Lions and Texans will “be in play” for the veteran.

Wagner has spent his entire four-year career with the Ravens after being selected in the fifth round of the 2013 draft. The offensive tackle ultimately played in 62 games for Baltimore, including 47 starts. A recent report indicated that the ship “appears to have sailed” regarding Wagner’s return to the Ravens.

The Lions are a natural fit for the 27-year-old, as offensive lineman Riley Reiff is also currently a free agent. Meanwhile, our own Connor Byrne noted that the Texans should seek some offensive line help this offseason. However, he could be out of their price range, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter link).

PFR’s Zach Links ranked Wagner as the second-best offensive tackle available in free agency. The veteran was listed below Andrew Whitworth and above Russell Okung.

    Ive wanted the Bears to get him this offseason since the beginning of the year!

    ShortJr wants him. Rockydog69 needs him. But he will end up in Detroit. Book it.

    • Not so crazy

      What makes you so sure? Quin comes from an organization that prides itself on picking up talent “under the radar”…….this guy is hardly under the radar and will command a large pricetag

    Considering the Jets don’t even have a tackle, one would think they’d reach out.
