A person familiar with the situation says the Detroit Lions will have a chance to make a pitch to free agent Golden Tate in person.
The person, who says the wide receiver was traveling to Detroit on Tuesday night, spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the visit had not been announced.
The Lions are looking for someone to complement wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Tate appears to be a good fit. He led the Seattle Seahawks with 64 catches and 898 yards receiving last season, setting career highs in both categories. The former Notre Dame star also scored five touchdowns last season, giving him 15 in his four-year career.
