07:12 PM ET 04.02 | After losing backup defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill to the Tennessee Titans, the Lions have a need behind starters Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Early in the offseason, they brought in veteran defensive tackle Mike Patterson for a visit. Today, NFL Networks Michelle Beisner reported that C.J. Mosley will visit the Lions. The former sixth-round pick by Minnesota in 2005, Mosley has spent time with the Vikings, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Jacksonville in eight NFL seasons. The 6'2", 314-pound defensive tackle has been known for his run defense prowess. In 2012, he posted a +7.1 run defensive rating, with a -1.3 pass rush rating, according to Pro Football Focus. He posted a career-high 45 tackles with 2 1/2 sacks last season in 13 games started. According to Rotoworld, Mosley was slated to make $2.475 million in 2013 before his release.

You'd look like that too if you were employed by the Jags

He couldn't even stick with Jacksonville or Cleveland! It just might be time for him to get on with his life's work!!! Whatever that may be.
