Lions sign 4th-round pick Jason Fox to 3-year deal

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have signed fourth-round pick Jason Fox to a three-year contract.

The team announced the deal Friday soon after ending a three-day minicamp. The 6-foot-6, 314-pound offensive tackle was a four-year starter for the Miami Hurricanes.

Fox didn't play in Miami's last bowl game after surgery on his left knee and he had a hamstring injury during his pro workout.

Fox, who is from Fort Worth, Texas, adds depth for Detroit at tackle behind starters Jeff Backus and Gosder Cherilus.
