With free agency in full swing, the Detroit Lions are hosting a handful of players this week, hoping to lock a few up and shore up some holes on the roster. We already know OL Geoff Schwartz will be in Detroit on Friday, but throw in another offensive lineman to the recruiting list, according to the Detroit Lions:
Former Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeil is flying to Detroit Thursday and will visit the Lions’ practice facility in Allen Park Friday, according to a league source.
McNeil was released by the Chargers earlier this week due to his history with neck injuries and to clear cap space. He was a second-round draft pick in 2006 and has played in two Pro Bowls.
