The Lions presumably hope to bring back linebacker Stephen Tulloch. But that won’t stop them from taking a closer look at linebacker David Hawthorne.
Anwar Richardson of the MLive.com reports that Hawthorne will come to town on Tuesday.
Primarily a middle linebacker, Hawthorne would replace Tulloch, if Tulloch signs elsewhere.
Hawthorne, who spent four seasons with the Seahawks, visited the Saints on Saturday.
