The Detroit Lions have been making moves since NFL free agency began earlier this week, and one name on many Lions' fans minds is offensive lineman T.J. Lang.

Lang, 29, has spent eight years playing for the Green Bay Packers. He is a Michigan native and played at Brother Rice before playing at Eastern Michigan.

According to Lang, he has narrowed it down to three teams: The Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.

"I felt like those are the three teams ready to win now and have a great attitude around the program," Lang said on the Suburban Ford 7 Sports Cave.

He said he had a great visit in Detroit with the coaches and everyone, saying "I love the attitude out there."

Lang just got back from his final visit with Seattle and said he didn't want to make any rash decisions.

"It's been about four days since I got a good night's sleep," he said. "It's going to be a tough call and I'm glad I only had to do this one tie in my career."

The Lions have already signed offensive lineman Rick Wagner, giving him a contract for $9.5 million

Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader is also trying to get Lang to Detroit, tweeting, "Come on @TJLang70 we need you in Detroit! Help bring this city its first Super Bowl"

As to when Lang expects to make a decision, he said it could come either Sunday or Monday.

"I want to weight all my options and try to make a decision today," he said on the show. "Trying to figure out what the best fit will be."
