Lions Reportedly Not Interested In Akin Ayodele

As soon as the Broncos released linebacker Akin Ayodele on Tuesday, a few of you suggested that the Lions should bring him in. After all, depth isn't all that great at linebacker and Ayodele did visit Detroit back in April before eventually signing with Denver.

While the speculation about Ayodele wasn't unwarranted by any means, Tom Kowalski is reporting that it's unlikely he will land with the Lions, as they are apparently not interested.

According to the people I've talked to, the Lions will not be pursuing LB Akin Ayodele, who was released by the Broncos

There has been speculation about the Lions bringing in a veteran linebacker from the second Ernie Sims was traded, but nobody has actually been signed. For now, at least, it looks like that will continue to be the case.
