A day after visiting with the Miami Dolphins, free agent defensive tackle C.J. Mosley agreed to terms with the team:

As Schefter pointed out, the move reunites Mosley with former Detroit Lions teammate Ndamukong Suh, who signed as a free agent at the beginning of the offseason. Suh, Mosley, and the Lions had the top run-stopping defense in the league last year.

The signing adds another veteran defensive tackle to a group that includes Suh, Earl Mitchell, A.J. Francis, Anthony Johnson, Kamal Johnson, and Deandre Coleman along with this year's second round draft pick Jordan Phillips.

Mosley began his career as a sixth-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2005. He spent time with the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, and Jacksonville Jaguars before playing the last two seasons with the Lions. He played 31 games over those two seasons, starting eight last year.

He has a career total of 188 tackels, with 14 sacks, three passes defensed, six forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries. He tallied 27 tackles and 2.5 sacks last year.
