Lions finalize $40 million, 5-year deal with WR Marvin Jones

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions have finalized their $40 million, five-year contract with free agent wide receiver Marvin Jones.

The Lions introduced Jones on Thursday on a conference call. After losing Calvin Johnson to retirement, they were in the market for a receiver. Jones, who turns 26 on Saturday, was with the Cincinnati Bengals for four years, although he missed the 2014 season after foot and ankle injuries. He played in all 16 games last season.

Jones caught 65 passes for 816 yards and four touchdowns last season for the Bengals. Jones was drafted in the fifth round out of California in 2012. He caught 18 passes as a rookie, then had 51 receptions for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns during the 2013 season.
