Free-Agent DT Jason Jones Signs with Lions

The Detroit Lions bulked up their defensive line with the acquisition of former Seahawks DT Jason Jones.

The Detroit Lions have agreed to contract terms with free-agent defensive tackle Jason Jones (Seattle), according to NFL insider Adam Caplan.

Jones, 26, is a Detroit native and Eastern Michigan alum. He tallied three sacks in 12 games for the Seahawks in 2012, although his season prematurely ended following knee surgery.

At 6-5, 276 pounds, the former second-round pick is versatile enough to play both inside and outside, and should replace the expectedly departing Sammie Lee Hill.
