Reports: Bengals WR Marvin Jones will sign with Lions
Free-agent wide receiver Marvin Jones will sign with the Lions, according to multiple reports.
Jones was the Bengals’ second leading receiver last season, with 65 catches for 816 yards and four touchdowns. He missed the entire 2014 season with a foot injury.
SI.com’s Greg Bedard ranked Jones as the top receiver available and the No. 15 free agent overall.
Jones will help fill the void left by the retirement of Calvin Johnson, who announced Monday that he was leaving the game after nine seasons.
Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu is also a free agent.
