Former Clemson safety Jayron Kearse is signing a one-year deal worth $2.75 million with the Detroit Lions according to multiple reports including NFL.com.

In 2019, he had 19 tackles, an interception, and six pass deflections with the Minnesota Vikings.

The low-point of the season was when he arrested for a DWI and carrying a firearm without a permit five months ago.

During his four year NFL career, he has 79 tackles, 0.5 sack, a fumble recovery, eight pass deflections, and an interception.

The south Florida native posted seven interceptions, 11 passes defended, and 164 stops (11.5 for loss/3 sacks) over three seasons as a Tiger.
