The Chiefs hosted free agent OT Cornelius Lucas.

It's the first interest in Lucas this offseason. Lucas has appeared in just six games since 2015 and was limited to one spot start with the Rams last year. He would be a depth signing in Kansas City.

Rams signed OT Cornelius Lucas.

Lucas was briefly in the running to be the Lions' fill-in left tackle this summer before getting waived. A 2014 UDFA, he's made 35 career appearances, including six starts.

Cornelius Lucas and Joe Dahl split first-team reps at left tackle during last week's OTAs.

The Lions are looking to replace Taylor Decker (shoulder). They added tackle depth by signing Tony Hills, and Corey Robinson will also be an option when he returns from foot surgery. It's going to be difficult to replace Decker, who graded out as PFF's No. 21 tackle as a rookie last year.

Lions re-signed OT Cornelius Lucas to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

It's the value of the low tender Lucas was extended as a restricted free agent. Lucas is the favorite to open the season as the Lions' swing tackle.

Lions extended an original-round tender to restricted free agent OT Cornelius Lucas.

That tender is worth $1.797 million. Lucas logged just 41 regular season snaps in 2016, though he did start Detroit's playoff loss to Seattle. He'll return as a backup tackle for starters Taylor Decker and newly-signed Rick Wagner.

Sophomore OT Cornelius Lucas is getting first-team reps at right tackle during Lions' OTAs.

Lucas struggled in two starts at right tackle last season after playing exclusively on the left side at Kansas State. "Just playing left my whole life, when I went over to the right last year I just wasn't comfortable at all and you could see it on film," Lucas said. "I just wasn't comfortable in my stance." With LaAdrian Waddle sidelined by a late-season ACL tear, Lucas has gotten significant reps on the right side and could start in Week 1.

Lions GM Martin Mayhew considers undrafted rookie OT Cornelius Lucas a candidate for a swing role.

"We think he has a chance to be like a LaAdrian Waddle sort of guy," Mayhew said. "We're excited about this kid. He's definitely got a chance to make our team. We’re going to try him at left and right tackle." An All-Big 12 honorable mention as a senior, Lucas has starting-caliber tools and good athleticism for a 6-foot-8, 320 pound tackle. He didn't participate at the Combine due to a foot injury, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

Lions signed Kansas State OT Cornelius Lucas.

Lucas (6-foot-7 3/4, 316) was a two-year starter at left tackle for the Wildcats, earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors as a senior from the conference's coaches. Lucas' potential stems almost purely from his size, as he is a mammoth human with 36 3/4-inch arms, and capable of engulfing would-be pass rushers. Lucas must polish his pass-protection technique, but has starting-caliber tools and moves relatively well for his build.
