Free agency hasn't officially opened, and the Lions are already joining a list of teams busy agreeing to deals with players.
The Lions are adding linebackers Devon Kennard and Christian Jones, according to multiple reports.
Kennard, who has spent the last four seasons with the Giants, will sign a three-year, $18.75 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He was a fifth-round pick out of USC in 2014.
Jones, an undrafted free agent out of Florida State in 2014, started immediately with the Bears. He'll get a two-year deal worth $7.75 million, Adam Schefter reports.
The deals can't be offered or signed until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, when the new league year begins.
