Lions add yet another veteran lineman

Jake Scott AP

For the second time in as many days, the Lions have added a veteran offensive lineman.

After adding Leroy Harris yesterday, the Lions have now agreed to a deal with Jake Scott, according to a tweet from his agent.

Scott’s started 128 games in nine NFL seasons, with the Colts, Titans and Eagles.

The fact they’ve brought in two experienced interior linemen this week should tell you something about their feelings about their rebuilt line. The Lions lost both starting tackles (Jeff Backus to retirement, Gosder Cherilus to free agency) and released guard Stephen Peterman, triggering a shuffle that’s apparently not close to being settled.

    They are bringing other players in for depth… like any team with young players at any position. Nothing to see here. (I hope)

    They really work lacking depth at guard, still need an additional tackle.

    All it shows me is that they are being smart…bring in a couple vets to help the young linemen. Doubling down, so to speak.

    I’m not sure what bringing in a couple vets tells you, but it tells me that they are looking for a couple solid linemen to compete for backup roles. Mayhew is known for leaving no stone unturned.

    Their line is not “rebuilt”, it’s *being* rebuilt….BIG difference.
