It’s been pretty quiet on the personnel front for the Detroit Lions, but we do have a roster move following Monday’s practice session.

The Lions have signed free agent running back Justin Jackson. The 26-year-old Jackson spent his first four seasons with the Chargers. He was a college teammate at Northwestern of fellow Lions RB Godwin Igwebuike, who played safety until last season.

Jackson has rushed for 1,040 yards and four TDs in 43 career games. He also caught 65 passes while serving as the No. 2 back for the Chargers.

The Lions placed undrafted rookie wide receiver Corey Sutton on the reserve/retired list to make room on the roster for Jackson.
