The Lions and ex-Jaguars defensive tackle C.J. Mosley are closing in on a contract agreement, Adam Caplan of The Sideline View reported Wednesday.

The Jaguars released Mosley on April 1.

If he joins the Lions, Mosley would figure as one of their top reserve interior linemen behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. The Lions lost key backup defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill to the Titans earlier in free agency. Also, veteran defensive tackles Corey Williams and Andre Fluellen remain unsigned.

The 29-year-old Mosley notched career-highs in tackles (45) and sacks (2.5) in 13 starts for Jacksonville last season. He is entering his ninth NFL season.

    He is also the DT that sacked Stafford during the Cleveland game in 2009. The sack that separated his shoulder. Buddies now.

    Nothing against Mosley – I’m sure he will be good. But I hope we re-sign C. Williams too. When he is healthy he is a beast.

    An aging guy who put up his best season but still has less than desirable numbers?
