Yesterday, detroitlions.com beat writer Mike O’Hara said defensive end Jason Jones, formerly of Eastern Michigan, could be a player to watch as free agency neared. Today, NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah agreed.
I’m hearing DE Jason Jones has drawn interest from several teams, including NYG, DET, CLE and KC.

Jones started his career in Tennessee as a 2008 second round draft pick, Jim Schwartz was the defensive coordinator, playing four seasons for the Titans. In those four seasons, Jones started 31 times tallying 15.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles. Last season he played for the Seattle Seahawks, adding three sacks without a start.
Playing with the Seahawks last season, Jones came in contact with the quarterback (Sacks, Hits, Hurries) 18 times in 332 snaps.
The Lions will leave no stone unturned in their quest to overhaul the defensive line, and Jones could be one of the options.
