Lions host free agent OT Cyrus Kouandjio
- In the wake of losing starting left-tackle Taylor Decker the Detroit Lions are hosting free agent tackle Cyrus Kouandjio for a visit. Kouandjio has NFL experience playing both tackle spots.
- In 2016 Kouandjio filled in for Bills left-tackle Cordy Glenn when injured. Over the course of the season he played significant time in seven games, including five starts totaling 406 total offensive snaps, 383 of which were played at LT.
- Last season Kouandjio earned an overall grade of 76.7, which ranked 34th out of 78 total offensive tackles. Kouandjio allowed just one sack on 207 pass block snaps.
- As a rookie in 2015, Kouandjio played just 234 total snaps. 202 of those were played at right-tackle where he started one game. Kouandjio didn’t play enough snaps to qualify for a rank but his grade of 74.2 was comparable to his 2016 performance.
