T.J. Lang sets up visits with Lions, Seahawks

Guard T.J. Lang didn’t agree to a deal before the official start of free agency on Thursday afternoon, but he has scheduled a couple of visits to teams interested in adding him to the lineup.

According to multiple reports, Lang has set up visits with the Lions and Seahawks.

The Lions lost guard Larry Warford to New Orleans and tackle Riley Reiff as free agents, but are expected to add former Ravens tackle Rick Wagner to the right side of their offensive line. Signing Lang would further bolster their offensive front while taking a player away from their division rivals in Green Bay.

The Seahawks have signed former Jaguar Luke Joeckel and have plenty of work to do to get their line where it needs to be for the 2017 season.

Lang said before the start of free agency that he would give the Packers a chance to match any other offers for his services, so they likely remain in the mix for Lang at this point in the proceedings.

  1. Lions will offer pile o cash to pry him off GB.. not sure Seattle can/want to pay that much for a gaurd.

    Packers probably being the dark horse here

  2. If he could play OT….I’d love it. He’s a great player but we have 2 guards who can play and NO tackles! Unless the plan is to sign him and bounce Ifedi to RT

    My guess is TJ Lang won’t be wearing purple now.

    I wouldn’t say that YET. If there’s a team that needs O Line help it’s certainly Minn. If a team wants to give TJ a big deal in excess of $7.5 mil/yr, by all means go ahead.
    I love the guy but he’s on the back end of his career.
    Ted would love him back but probably closer to $6 mil.
    I ain’t gonna happen. He’s probably a player on another team by the end of the week.

    That’s exactly what the Seahawks are planning to do. Even though Ifedi is great at being a G, he is a natural at T. He moves well and has length. Unfortunately Lang is probably way out of the Seahawks price range to sign.

  5. If you packer fans think it’ll be ok to go with rookies and second stringers to protect your franchise QB. Trust me. It isn’t.

  6. Langs choice of visits are pretty interesting when you consider the fact that ones in the division, and the other is probably the one team outside the division that the Packers hate the most. I believe the Seahawks feel the same way. In this case if he’s healthy, don’t be surprised if he does end up in he Northwest.
