Andre Gurode Visits Detroit Lions

Although the Lions were in Buffalo on Thursday for their final preseason game of 2011, they still hosted former Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode for a visit, according to ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins.

Gurode was released earlier this week as the Cowboys continued creating cap space. Fellow former Cowboys offensive lineman Leonard Davis was released in August for the same reason, and he also visited the Lions. His visit happened in mid-August, and so far all has been quiet on the Davis front. He is still a free agent, and there have been no developments involving the Lions.

Chances are the situation with Gurode will end up being similar. He is drawing interest from other teams -- he visited the Seahawks on Wednesday -- and it's unlikely the Lions are going to give him a deal good enough to sign him given their lack of cap space. Besides, this close to the start of the season it's not too likely the Lions will sign somebody to replace Dominic Raiola.

In my mind this was an exploratory visit more than anything. Perhaps if an injury occurs down the road and Gurode is still a free agent something could happen, but I don't envision him joining the team in the near future. It is possible that the Lions are at least thinking about shaking up the offensive line, though.
