Report: Possible Lions target Odrick headed to Jaguars

Jared Odrick was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round in 2010 out of Penn State.

One of the top defensive tackle options for the Lions to replace Ndamukong Suh is no longer on the market.

Former Dolphins defensive tackle Jared Odrick agreed to terms on a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Many analysts considered Odrick the second-best 4-3 defensive tackle on the market behind Ndamukong Suh, who spurned the Lions to sign with Miami for a contract worth up to $114 million and with $60 million guaranteed.

Prior to having one sack in 2014, Odrick had at least 4.5 sacks in each of the previous three seasons. He also has good size — 6-foot-5, 304 pounds — and athleticism for an interior pass rusher.

Terms for Odrick's deal were not included in the report. Knowing what Odrick makes should help set the market for Lions' free-agent defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

Now, the Lions have to turn their attention elsewhere as they try to fill the hole left by Suh, a first-team All-Pro in three of his five seasons.

The Lions could still re-sign Fairley and C.J. Mosley, who are familiar with coordinator Teryl Austin's scheme. If they poach some players from the free-agent market, Arizona's Dan Williams, Chicago's Stephen Paea and Dallas' Henry Melton are among the top options.
