Lions sign safety Sean Jones

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions have signed safety Sean Jones to a one-year deal and released safety Sam Proctor.

The Lions announced the moves Monday.

The 30-year-old Jones started all 16 games each of the last two seasons with Tampa Bay. Prior to that, he played a year with Philadelphia and four seasons with Cleveland.

Jones made 71 tackles last season. The Lions had signed Proctor last month as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma.
