Free agent right tackle Eric Winston scheduled free agent visits with at least four teams but it looked liek he might never got past visit number one. Rumors circulated that the Chiefs and Winston could be on the verge of a deal but it hasn’t happened yet.
The Kansas City Chiefs are still a significant threat to the Lions’ chances of landing Winston. Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that the Lions visit will take place on Monday but a very important “if statement” is necessary:

The Lions still have opportunities to add to their offensive line through free agency thanks to visits from Geoff Schwartz, formerly of the Panthers, and former Chargers tackle Marcus McNeill. Not much has leaked out regarding the Lions’ standing with Jeff Backus although Chris McCosky of the Detroit News speculates the lack of action could be an indication that the two sides could split ways.
