Lions entertain free-agent guard Timmerman

The Detroit Lions will entertain veteran free-agent Adam Timmerman on Wednesday, marking the third guard in the last week that has visited team headquarters. More inside, including Detroit's forthcoming decision on an offensive guard.

The Detroit Lions will entertain veteran free-agent Adam Timmerman on Wednesday, the team's official web site reported.

Timmerman, a 13-year veteran, will be the third offensive guard to visit Lions headquarters in a week. The team already met with free-agents Cosey Coleman (3/14) and Edwin Mulitalo (3/9), who spent last season with Cleveland and Baltimore, respectively.

Timmerman was released by St. Louis in late February after spending the last eight years as a Ram. During that time, Timmerman played under former Rams coach and current Detroit offensive coordinator Mike Martz, notching two Pro Bowl appearances and a Super Bowl ring.

He also won a Super Bowl during his tenure in Green Bay (1995-1998), and never missed the post-season while with the two organizations until 2006.

Before last year, Timmerman started every game of his career following his rookie season, and managed to start 13 of his 14 contests in 2006.

Although Timmerman has publicly voiced a willingness to return to Green Bay, the Packers have yet to respond with reciprocal interest. The Lions, meanwhile, are likely to decide on a veteran guard -- an option list that includes Timmerman, Mulitalo, and Coleman -- by early next week, if not before the weekend.
