Leonard Davis Reportedly Visiting Detroit Lions

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, offensive guard Leonard Davis is in town for a visit with the Detroit Lions. The visit is reportedly taking place tonight and tomorrow.

Davis played for the Arizona Cardinals from 2001-06 and the Dallas Cowboys from 2007-10. He started every single game during his time in Dallas and started all but five games when he was in Arizona.

Davis reached the Pro Bowl three straight years while with the Cowboys. He was selected to the game from 2007 to 2009 and was also an All-Pro selection in 2007. Despite his solid play, the Cowboys released him after the NFL lockout came to an end because of his expensive contract.

What exactly does this news mean for the Lions? It seems as though they are exploring the possibility of an upgrade at the guard position. There's obviously no guarantee that Davis would be a starter if the Lions do sign him, but at the least this could an indication that they want to replace Stephen Peterman, who is also a former Cowboy.

PFT reports that Davis is open to signing a one-year deal, so this could be another potential low-risk, high-reward type of move. The Lions made a few early on during free agency, and one more could be on the way.
