Tight end Daniel Brown is set to visit with the Lions today, reports Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (via Twitter). The reporter notes that the free agent has four teams interested in his services.
After a two-year stint with the Ravens, the former undrafted free agent out of James Madison has spent the past three seasons with the Bears. He was relatively productive offensive;ly between 2016 and 2017, hauling in 29 total receptions. However, he went without a catch in 2018 despite appearing in 14 games (he also contributed on special teams). Pro Football Focus ultimately gave him adequate grades despite his low snap count.
The Lions have already added one tight end in Jesse James, and they’re also rostering former fourth-rounder Michael Roberts. Detroit has a trio of free agent tight ends in Levine Toilolo, Luke Willson, and Jerome Cunningham.
