Detroit Lions schedule visit with Free Agent Safety George Wilson

      This off-season, the Detroit Lions have many holes they must fill heading into the 2013 season. None, however, may be bigger than safety. Starter Louis Delmas has not been able to stay on the field, missing 13 games the past two seasons, while having 2 knee surgery's. Amari Spievey has dealt with concussion symptoms, forcing him to sit out much of the season. One could argue his play was not at a starters level.

       According to Jason La Confora of CBSSports, he has a visit to Detroit in the near future.

      Wilson was voted team captain five times in his career, started all 16 games last season and recorded 104 tackles. 

      According to Pro Football Focus, Wilson was the 8th best safety for the 2012 season with an overall rating of +12.4, while being solid against the run (+3.6) and pass (+7.4).

      In 2004, the Lions signed him as an undrafted free agent but cut him heading into camp.
