The Detroit Lions have signed Jonathan Freeny, a free-agent linebacker who played with three teams last season.
The Lions announced the move on Monday.
The 28-year-old Freeny spent time with New England, Baltimore and New Orleans, playing in a total of six games. He made 11 starts for the Patriots over two seasons from 2015-16. Before that, he was with Miami.
New Lions coach Matt Patricia was the defensive coordinator for the Patriots when Freeny was with New England.
