According to the NFL Canada Twitter account, the Detroit Lions will meet with former Seattle Seahawks tight end, Luke Willson.

The 28-year old is originally from Ontario, Canada.
He was drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth-round out of Rice in the 2013 draft. In his five-year career, he has 89-catches, 1,129-yards and 11 touchdowns– all with Seattle.
With the recent departure of Eric Ebron, there is a fairly large hole that needs to be filled at the “F” tight end position. Willson is a very underrated athlete. He actually tested better than Ebron in a majority of measurements.
The Lions have also been linked with former Eagles tight end, Brent Celek.
