ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The agent for Jason Jones says the 26-year-old defensive end has agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions.
Agent Mike McCartney says Wednesday on Twitter that he's ``excited for Jason Jones to be in Honolulu Blue'' after agreeing to a deal with the Lions. Terms are not immediately available.
The agent for Detroit cornerback Chris Houston says the player has also agreed to a new deal that will keep him with the Lions.
Jones, who is from the Detroit area, played 12 games with the Seattle Seahawks last season. He was not a starter, but the 6-foot-5, 276-pound Jones could play a bigger role with the Lions, who may lose defensive end Cliff Avril to free agency.
Detroit also released veteran Kyle Vanden Bosch last month.
