The Lions are visiting with free-agent safety Rafael Bush, according to NFL Network.

The Lions are reportedly planning a visit with a safety who has starting experience on Friday.

Rafael Bush, who spent the past four years with the New Orleans Saints, will be in Detroit Friday, according to NFL Network.

The Lions signed former Patriots safety Tavon Wilson on Wednesday, but they’re still looking for potential starting help next to Glover Quin.

Bush, 28, spent most of 2015 on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. He started in Week 1 and then missed the rest of the year.

In 2014, Bush played 10 games with seven starts and had 56 tackles and two passes defensed. In 2013, he played 13 games with six starts and had 42 tackles and five passes defensed.

The Lions lost Isa Abdul-Quddus, who started eight games last year, in free agency to the Miami Dolphins, and they don’t play to re-sign James Ihedigbo.
