After being released by the Eagles, defensive tackle Mike Patterson is going to visit with a familiar face.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Patterson is scheduled to meet with the Lions.

There, he’d get to work with former Eagles line coach Jim Washburn, who was hired by the Lions this offseason.

Patterson came back from a seizure which was caused by a tangle of blood vessels in his brain, and played five games for the Eagles last season.
