Lions visit list
A couple of you have asked for a list of what prospects have visited the Lions. Here's a partial list culled from people I've talked with and other reports online.
Lions president Tom Lewand indicated earlier this week the team planned to bring the maximum 30 players to town We won't comment specifically on how many or who or what have you, but I would file that under the same general umbrella of being as thorough as we possibly can and gathering as much information as we can, he said.
Since today is the last day players can visit, I'm sure I'm missing some names. Feel free to add them below if you anyone stands out.
Prospects to visit Detroit
QB Josh Freeman, Mark Sanchez, Matt Stafford
OL T.J. Lang, Eugene Monroe, Andre Smith, Jason Smith, Eric Wood
TE Carson Butler, Brandon Pettigrew
WR D.J. Boldin, Jeremy Maclin
