The Zach Orr summer tour is heating up.
The most popular man in the NFL in the dead of June is making his rounds this week to meet with teams and get medicals after announcing he's considering a return from a brief retirement.
Orr announced on NFL Network's Good Morning Football on Wednesday his anticipated return after briefly retiring in January due to a congenital neck and spine condition.
How quickly a team will scoop up the Baltimore Ravens' leading tackler last season remains to be seen. A lot rides on the medicals. Orr's agent, Rob Sheets, told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo on Thursday night that the Lions' doctors were "pleased with everything so far, overtly positive."
A young playmaking middle linebacker hitting free agency in June is rare. The Ravens were in negotiations with the undrafted free agent before learning of his condition. If several teams don't have the same concerns Baltimore's doctors did about Orr continuing to play, a bidding war could ensue.
