Lions adding depth with interior offensive linemen

Posted · Add Comment

The Detroit Lions are seeking some depth on their offensive line with training camp about a month-and-a-half away.

Guard Jake Scott has agreed to terms with the club on a contract, his agent Chris Gittings announced via Twitter. Scott becomes the second lineman added to the fold in as many days as Detroit signed Leroy Harris on Monday.

Scott has plenty of experience in nine seasons. He has started 128 games in stops with the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles. He won a Super Bowl XLI ring with the Colts after the 2006 season.

Harris started at guard for most of the last three seasons for the Titans. He suffered a knee injury midway through last season.

What’s interesting is the biggest turnover on the line for the Lions has been on the outside. Left tackle Jeff Backus retired and right tackle Gosder Cherlius departed for the Colts via free agency. But now the team has some more depth to consider on the interior.
