Mike McCartney, the agent for free agent DL Jason Jones, tweets that the Lions have reached an agreement with his client.
The Lions have shown a ton of interest in Jones in recent days and ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned that they were prepared to get a deal done and prevent him from meeting with other teams.
Jones, 26, is a very versatile lineman who’s capable of playing defensive end and tackle, so he’ll be an interesting piece for the Lions to use on their already strong defensive line.
We had Jones listed as the No. 59 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
