Veteran linebacker Rocky McIntosh needs a new team.  And the Lions would like some more depth at the linebacker position.

While that’s yet to result in the Lions signing McIntosh, it was enough to get him a workout with Detroit, a league source tells PFT.

McIntosh played six years with the Redskins before joining the Rams in 2012.  Last year, he appeared in 16 games with nine starts.

Durable as linebackers go, McIntosh has missed only four games in seven NFL seasons.

The development comes in the wake of linebacker Stephen Tulloch disputing the notion that the Lions have concerns at the linebacker position entering the coming season.
