DL Jason Jones signs with Detroit

The Seattle Seahawks lost their first player in free agency, with defensive lineman Jason Jones agreeing to a deal with Detroit this morning, according to his agent.

This move is not a surprise for Jones, a Detroit native, who played for Lions head coach Jim Schwartz while at Tennessee.

According to this report, Jones agreed to a three-year deal.

Jones was an effective pass rusher inside for Seattle, but played in only 12 games, finishing the season in the injured reserve with a knee issue. His departure in free agency adds more urgency for Seattle to find an inside pass rusher through the draft or free agency.
