Lions coach Jim Schwartz recently complained that, in order to address deficiencies on special teams, the Lions would have to get better special-teams players.

And now they have one.

Kassim Osgood announced on his Twitter page that he’s a member of the Lions.

The Jaguars dumped Osgood and his $2 million base salary on the first day of free agency.  He spent two years in Jacksonville after seven in San Diego.
