Lions make it official with Jansen, Ciurciu

The Lions made it official today when they announced they’ve re-signed T Jon Jansen and LB Vinny Ciurciu. Both agreed to one-year deals.

These aren’t the splashy signings, but both are good moves.

Last year, in his first season in Detroit, Jansen provided leadership on and off the field. But more than that, he proved he could still play and even started one game at guard. He would do anything to help the team and it was important to have a guy like that around so many young players.

Ciurciu, a seven-year veteran who was signed to the active roster on Oct. 22, was a huge factor on special teams. That’s something that can’t be overlooked.

i dont get these moves . jansen is done ! ciurciu is not a nfl talent . the lions have done very well in free agency SO FAR . but its about getting the lions BETTER not putting ol bodies thats broke down out there . and for the life of me ,i cant understand why the lions never fix our cornerbacks ? yes the got a couple of bandaids ,wade ,houston ,but not much else . we could of had cromartie for a late draft pick and we passed ,why ? all that said i still love my lions and they should be 8-8 next year .
