Lions To Host Everette Brown For Visit, According To Report

The Detroit Lions are continuing to schedule visits with free agents and have arranged one with defensive end Everette Brown, according to Adam Caplan. The visit is expected to take place in the next day.

Brown was selected in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He came out of Florida State projected to play linebacker in a 3-4 defense and defensive end in a 4-3. With Carolina, he lasted only two seasons after recording a total of 49 tackles and six sacks in 2009 and 2010. Brown was picked up by the San Diego Chargers last November before being let go last week.

It's not clear if the Lions are looking at Brown as a linebacker or defensive end, but I'd have to imagine it's the latter considering they play a 4-3. In any case, they're probably just kicking the tires on him and looking at him as potential depth for training camp. Brown would have to play quite well to earn a permanent spot on the roster as a defensive lineman.

(And yes, this is the same Everette Brown who was once hilariously predicted to be the Lions' top pick in 2009 by the Sporting News' Russ Lande.)
