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.
