Former Patriots defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois is signing with the Lions, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports.
The 31-year-old had six tackles in six games for the Patriots in 2017. He'll reunite with ex-Patriots defensive coordinator and now Lions head coach Matt Patricia in Detroit.
Former Lions tight end Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Ebron was rumored to be a potential target for the Patriots, especially after new Pats running back Jeremy Hill tried recruiting him to the team.
The 24-year-old had 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns a season ago with Detroit.
Former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount has signed with the Lions on a one-year deal worth $4.5 million, Ian Rapaport of NFL Network reports.
Blount gained 766 yards and scored two touchdowns on 173 carries last season with the Super Bowl champion Eagles. The 31-year-old should provide a big help to a backfield that ranked dead last in the NFL in 2017.
