REPORT: TE Levine Toilolo visits with the Lions

According to Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions have visited with former Atlanta Falcons tight end, Levine Toilolo.

GM Bob Quinn has been very diligent in his search for the void left by last year’s tight ends, Eric Ebron and Darren Fells.

Toilolo has 74-catches, 723-yards receiving, and eight touchdowns in his five-year career with the Falcons.

The 6-foot-8 pass catcher has started 57 games after being drafted in the fourth-round in 2013. Even with his starts, he was considered more of a No. 2 tight end in Atlanta’s offense. He is a capable blocker but doesn’t necessarily excel in one area. Despite having a large catching radius, his athleticsm doesn’t jump off the charts either.

One undervalued positive was his availability. He only missed one game in five seasons.

After signing a three year deal worth $12-million a year ago, he was a rather surprising cut earlier this month. It did save the Falcons $3.5-million.
