Lions, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard to meet

The Lions will host free agent defensive tackle Rocky Bernard on Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Bernard (6-3, 301) played 12 games (five starts) in 2012 for the Giants, notching 30 tackles and one sack. He’s the second notable veteran defensive tackle to meet the Lions this week. Previously, the club hosted Justin Bannan, a starter at tackle for Denver in 2012.

A reserve for most of the last four seasons with New York, the 34-year-old Bernard would back up Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley in Detroit.

An 12th-year pro from Texas A&M, Bernard has recorded 380 tackles and 33 sacks. He played his first seven NFL seasons with Seattle (2002-2008).

    Hey Detroit , make sure he plays a lot of snaps against the 49′ers if you sign him . Ask Niner fans if they remember him & what he does to their quarterbacks …
