Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that free agent DT Justin Bannan will visit with the Detroit Lions on Monday.
Klis finds it “baffling” that Bannan is still available at this point in the offseason.
The Broncos drafted Sylvester Williams in the first-round of the recent NFL draft and added Terrance Knighton in free agency, so it’s clear that they have made the decision to get younger upfront.
Bannan, 33, reportedly found some interest from the Chargers last month, but nothing came of it. Last year, he graded out as an above-average defensive lineman, according to Pro Football Focus. Bannan offers more in terms of run-defense than as an interior pass rusher.
Detroit has Ndamukong Suh, Nick Fairley, Jason Jones, Israel Idonije and Ezekiel Ansah all on their defensive line, so playing time could be hard to come by if the team chooses to sign him.
