Veteran Corey Williams, who spent the last three seasons in Detroit, is still a free agent, but the Lions are reportedly exploring all options.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that free agent defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis will visit the Lions and Bears this week after a visit to New England last week.
Ellis, 27, was the No. 7-overall pick by the Saints in 2008. He’s started all 70 games he’s played in over the last five seasons and had 36 tackles in 2012.
His best season came in 2010, when he recorded 44 tackles, six sacks and forced two fumbles.
Note: The Lions released cornerback Lionel Smith Monday.
