Free Agent Linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba Visits Lions

New, comments

The Lions hosted free agent linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba for a visit on Wednesday, according to National Football Post. Ekejiuba was released by the Raiders earlier this month, and with training camps getting underway this weekend, he is looking for a new home.

Ekejiuba is apparently an outstanding special teams player, so it's no surprise that the Lions are interested in him. The Lions' special team play was very disappointing last year, and they have made strides this offseason to improve that unit by changing coaches and bringing in a few special teams-oriented players. Ekejiuba would be another one, as he has been an alternate for the Pro Bowl for his special teams play.

In addition to visiting the Lions, Ekejiuba was in Seattle meeting with the Seahawks for a couple days last week. The Browns are also reportedly interested in him.
