Lions sign OT J.B. Shugarts

In the same week Jason Fox left Detroit for Miami -- on a veteran minimum deal -- the Lions have brought in another offensive tackle.

The team has signed J.B. Shugarts, most likely to be known for having played for Ohio State than anything he has done in the pros.

Shugarts has spent time with Cleveland in 2012 and then Dallas and the New York Jets in 2013, but never more as a practice player. The Klein, Texas, native started for three seasons with the Buckeyes.

As of now, he would be the fourth tackle in the rotation behind starters Riley Reiff and LaAdrian Waddle and third tackle Corey Hilliard.
