Grady Jackson, Matt Birk find homes

Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert
Two significant NFC North-related signings occurred Wednesday afternoon. We'll be back with some analysis on both, but from a news perspective, here you go:

  1. As expected, Detroit signed nose tackle Grady Jackson to a three-year, $8 million deal.

  2. As wasn't expected, but perhaps should have been, Baltimore agreed to terms with Minnesota center Matt Birk.

Again, back in a few with analysis.
