On his first day as a Detroit Lion, defensive tackle C.J. Mosley took some good-natured ribbing. It was the 6-foot-2, 314-pound Mosley who put a vicious hit on Matthew Stafford that separated the quarterbacks shoulder in the final seconds of a game against Cleveland in 2009. Stafford came back in and threw the game-winning touchdown for the Lions as time expired. Now he and Mosley are teammates. Mosley, released by Jacksonville for salary-cap reasons, agreed to a two-year deal Wednesday with Detroit. I actually just ran into Stafford in the locker room today and the first thing he said was, I remember this guy, Mosley said in a quote posted on the clubs website. I said, Look man, I apologize. He said there were no hard feelings. We shook hands. Were cool. You can tell the city of Detroit and all the fans that I apologize. Apology accepted. The Lions were in need of depth at defensive tackle behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. The team lost free agent Sammie Hill to Tennessee and apparently doesnt plan to re-sign Corey Williams. Mosley, 29, was a sixth-round draft pick by Minnesota in 2005 coming out of Missouri. He became a full-time starter for the first time in his eight-year NFL career last season and finished with a career-high 45 tackles, including 2 sacks.
