Lions Ink Owens
By Nate Woelfel
The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with former Jacksonville Jaguars running back Montell Owens.
Owens, a two-time pro bowl selection, appeared in 13 games for Jacksonville last season, including four starts. He accumulated 209 rushing yards and a touchdown on 42 carries, all of which are career highs.
Special teams appears to be the niche for the veteran back and it may have played a role in landing him his new gig. Current Lions special teams coach John Bonamego was on the Jaguars’ coaching staff during the 2012 campaign.
Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
