Lions coach Jim Schwartz recently complained that, in order to address deficiencies on special teams, the Lions would have to get better special-teams players.

And now they have one.

Kassim Osgood announced on his Twitter page that he’s a member of the Lions.

The Jaguars dumped Osgood and his $2 million base salary on the first day of free agency. He spent two years in Jacksonville after seven in San Diego.

Special teams signing...but at age 32 is the guy still good enough to make a difference?

He's not only good enough, he is Osgood enough.

devin thomas looked good on sp teams for the giants last year but retired in bears camp, wonder what the story is there? hopefully osgood can help out but one guy isnt going to be enough. if the group doesnt improve danny crossman will be canned and judging by how edgy he was in practice last week i think he knows it.

A few years ago, San Diego had one of the best special teams in the League. The only major change they made was letting go of Kassim Osgood and the unit turned into one of the worst in the league. The guy is very good on punt and kick coverage. He made the Pro Bowl 3 times with the Chargers as the Special Teams representative. I think this is a good signing.
