There is no doubt about it, the Detroit Lions are hurting when it comes to tight ends.
According to a report from Ian Rapoport, the Lions worked out former Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford on Wednesday.
As the #Bengals went in a different direction at TE, the #Lions worked out TE Clive Walford today, source said. He was with Cincy earlier in the week and has also worked out for the #Seahawks. Figure he’ll find a place soon.

Walford was originally selected by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. During his three seasons with the Raiders, Walford played in 44 games (10 starts) accumulating 70 catches for 768 yards and six touchdowns.
Detroit Lions game-by-game predictions for the remainder of season
Well, our Detroit Lions are doing it to us again! After beating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Lions are now 2-3 and in striking distance in the NFC North. In fact, there are just four teams in the entire NFC that have more wins than Detroit. (Yes, we know there are 10 teams actually ahead of the Lions in the NFC standings)
Anyways, as fans, we now have a little bit of hope. The Lions have proven they can beat solid teams and if they can just get their crap together, they could make a run at the NFL Playoffs. The question is, will they get their crap together or will they break our hearts yet again?
Let’s take a look at my game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the season.
WEEK 6 – BYE WEEK
(W) WEEK 7 – @ Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins may be 3-2, but they are not a good football team. Even though this game is on the road, the Lions will be well-rested and will find a way to win to move to 3-3 on the season.
Lions 26 Dolphins 23
(W) WEEK 8 – vs. Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and he will likely have a big game against the Lions defense. That being said, the Seahawks are no longer a defensive powerhouse and Matthew Stafford will be slinging it around in this game as the Lions move above .500.
Lions 31 Seahawks 27
