Lions Interested In Re-Signing DT C.J. Mosley?


ESPN’s Josina Anderson refutes the previous report that the Lions are negotiating with free agent DT C.J. Mosley.

A source tells Anderson: “Contrary to published reports, the Lions have moved on from C.J. Mosley.

We’ll have more regarding Mosley and where he could end up as the news is available.


Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports that the Lions are interested in re-signing veteran DT C.J. Mosley.

According Meinke, contract talks between the two parties are still ongoing, but he adds that it’s possible a deal could be in place as soon as next week.

Mosley reportedly has interest from at least one other NFL team, which Meinke believes is an indication that Detroit may have to offer him more than the veteran’s minimum to sign.

Detroit has reworked their interior defensive line depth since they lost Ndamukong Suh and Mick Fairley in free agent. As of now, the Lions have Haloti Ngata, Tyrunn Walker, Caraun Reid and Gabe Wright at defensive tackle.

Mosley, 31, was suspended for marijuana possession after it was discovered in his hotel while the team was in London for their game against the Falcons last season.

In 2014, Mosley appeared in 15 games and recorded 26 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a forced fumble for the Lions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 26 defensive tackle out of 81 qualifying players.
