DE Kroy Biermann, husband of reality TV star, visits Detroit Lions

Kroy Biermann played for the Atlanta Falcons for eight seasons, but he might be better known for his part in the TV show “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Biermann’s wife, Kim Zolciak, was one of the stars of that show on Bravo and has her own show, “Don’t Be Tardy," on Bravo. “Don’t Be Tardy” was renewed for a fifth season in April.

Biermann is a free agent, and the Detroit Lions brought in the defensive end/linebacker for a visit Wednesday, according to the NFL Network.

The 30-year-old Biermann has played in 114 games, making 286 tackles with 23.5 sacks, two interceptions and three forced fumbles. He was drafted in the fifth round by the Falcons in 2008 and built a steady career in Atlanta.

With Detroit, Biermann would likely be a defensive end and would compete with Wallace Gilberry and draft pick Anthony Zettel for snaps and, potentially, a roster spot. The Lions need some bodies at defensive end after not re-signing Jason Jones and Darryl Tapp. Jones signed with Miami and Tapp remains a free agent.

The latest season of “Don’t Be Tardy” is scheduled to air this summer, so it would be interesting to see what happens if Biermann ends up with the Lions.
