Free-agent LB Nick Barnett visited the Lions on Saturday, according to a league source.
Barnett was released by the Packers on Friday, as expected. He played in just four games last season before suffering a season-ending wrist injury.
The Lions are in the market for a linebacker, and many have linked Barnett to Detroit. The Lions already have agreed to terms with Justin Durant, who will play on the outside, and the addition of Barnett would allow them to move DeAndre Levy to the outside.
