Kitna signs with Lions

Free agent quarterback Jon Kitna signed with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

The former Bengal and Seahawk paid a visit to the Jets on Monday, but the Lions were always the favorites to land him.

The Lions situation was more appealing to Kitna because he has a much better chance of beating out a struggling Joey Harrington, than a healthy Chad Pennington.

With Kitna now a Lion, the Jets will likely look to trade for Redskins backup Patrick Ramsey. Though you could make the argument that current Jets backup Brooks Bollinger is better than Ramsey.
