Lions to host C.J. Mosley for visit, according to report

Jason Miller

The Detroit Lions are reportedly bringing in free-agent defensive tackle C.J. Mosley for a visit.

The Detroit Lions have scheduled a visit with free-agent defensive tackle C.J. Mosley, according to NFL Network's Michelle Beisner. Mosley is going to fly into Detroit on Tuesday night, meaning the main part of his visit will likely be held on Wednesday.

Mosley was just released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday after spending three seasons with the team. He started 13 games for the Jaguars last season and had 45 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. A year earlier, he started only 3 games and had 24 tackles and 1.0 sack.

Mosley, 29, entered the NFL in 2005 as a sixth-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings. He only spent one season with Minnesota before spending the next three with the New York Jets. He then was with the Cleveland Browns for one season before joining the Jaguars back in 2010.

If Mosley were to sign with the Lions, he would be one of their primary backups at defensive tackle. The Lions are set at defensive tackle when it comes to their starters, but there is no real depth behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Adding Mosley would be a nice first step in building some rotational depth at the defensive tackle position.
