The Jaguars announced Monday that they’ve signed free-agent logistics coordinator Mike Salson to a three-year contract extension, the team announced.
Salson was with the Lions from 2011 to 2016 and worked with them as a scout for several years.
He also was an assistant to Lions general manager Bob Quinn and is a graduate of the NFL Scouting Combine.
Salty was a scout and special teams coordinator with the Ravens from 2014 to 2017.
He previously worked with the Eagles, Buccaneers, Lions, Colts and Jaguars.
The Ravens selected Salsons in the fourth round of the 2015 draft.
The Jaguars were unable to secure a replacement for Nate Collins and were hoping to fill their depth at logistics coordinator.
Collins was released by the Rams and was released after the season.
The Lions are looking to improve the offensive line, and the Jaguars’ roster has some talent at the position.
The Jaguars are currently ranked eighth in the NFL with an average of 2.89 sacks per game.
They also are ranked second in the league in pass protection (90.7 percent).
The Jaguars also have the seventh-best scoring defense in the NFC and rank eighth in total yards allowed (4,065).
They have the third-best passing defense in NFL history (194.3 yards per game).
The Lions’ offseason acquisitions in free agency include wide receiver T.J. Jones, defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, cornerback Josh Bynes and running back Chris Ivory.
