Lions' Ricky Jean Francois: Lands one-year deal with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jean Francois agreed to a one-year contract with the Lions on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jean Francois continues his tour around the league, with Detroit being the fifth team he has joined over the past four years. Despite now being 31 years old and clearly on the downside of his career, Jean Francois was a decent contributor for the Patriots and Packers last season and will provide the Lions with solid depth along the defensive line.

Ricky Jean Francois: Moving on from New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jean Francois recently indicated that he won't be returning to the Patriots in 2018, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Jean Francois originally signed with New England last November to provide relief for a team that was dealing with injuries along its defensive line. He ultimately appeared in eight games with the Patriots -- six in the regular season, two in the playoffs -- and racked up 16 tackles and one sack while operating in a limited role. The 31-year-old intends to continue his playing career in 2018, and he's proved he can still be an effective player despite his advanced age.

Patriots' Ricky Jean Francois: Signs with New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jean Francois signed with the Patriots on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The signing likely comes as a result of Malcom Brown still being sidelined with an ankle injury, as Jean Francois will be able to add some veteran depth along the defensive line. Jean Francois was released by the Packers last week.
