Dolphins signed DT C.J. Mosley to a one-year contract.
It's a solid depth signing for Miami. Mosley graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 26 defensive tackle last season, receiving positive marks both against the run and pass. He's good friends with Ndamukong Suh and should slot in as the Dolphins' No. 3 defensive tackle behind Suh and fellow starter Earl Mitchell. Jun 10 - 1:33 PM

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley will visit with more teams after meeting with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

The Dolphins offered Mosley a contract, but he wants to see what else is out there. Mosley's agent Harold Lewis called it a "great visit," so it's certainly possible he could circle back to Miami. Dolphins VP of football operations Mike Tannenbaum was the Jets' GM when Mosley was on the team from 2006-08. The Browns, Jaguars, Lions and Vikings have also been linked to Mosley.

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley visited the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Mosley was reportedly discussing a contract with the Lions late last week, but that report was shot down by ESPN's Josina Anderson. The soon-to-be 32-year-old had a productive season in Detroit last year, but was busted for having marijuana in his hotel room on the London trip and has yet to draw much interest.

MLive.com reports the Lions are in contract negotiations with free agent DT C.J. Mosley.

Mosley is also receiving interest from one other club. The 31-year-old started the final nine games last season for the Lions, receiving plus marks from PFF for both his pass rush and run defense. He'd be a quality veteran addition behind Haloti Ngata to go with youngsters Tyrunn Walker and Caraun Reid.

MLive's Kyle Meinke believes the Lions are not pursuing free agent DT C.J. Mosley because of his marijuana-related suspension last season.

Mosley missed the Lions' game against the Falcons in London after marijuana was found in his hotel room. Mosley was sent home and suspended for a week of practice. Suspension aside, Mosley was a big reason the Lions' defense remained an elite unit following an injury to Nick Fairley, and he would be a useful piece to have as Detroit tries to replace Ndamukong Suh.

Lions DT C.J. Mosley has served his suspension and is back with the team.

Mosley was reportedly caught with marijuana in his London hotel room last week and was suspended by the Lions. When asked if Mosley is facing any punishment from the league, coach Jim Caldwell called it a league and NFLPA issue.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Lions DT C.J. Mosley was sent home from London last week after he was caught with marijuana in his hotel room.

Mosley allegedly disabled a smoke detector in his room and was sent back on a flight to Detroit ahead of the Lions' tilt with the Falcons. He was suspended two games by the team. Mosley is a replacement-level 31-year-old backup.

Lions suspended DT C.J. Mosley two weeks for violation of team rules.

Mosley was sent home from London on Saturday for conduct detrimental to the team. He's been placed on the reserve/suspended list, with S Jerome Couplin taking his spot on the active roster. Caraun Reid will pick up Mosley's snaps behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley. Despite his reserve role, Mosley has quietly been one of the best defensive tackles in football this season.

Lions agreed to terms with DT C.J. Mosley, formerly of the Jaguars, on a two-year, $2.75 million contract.

He signs just two days after being cut by the Jaguars. Mosley overtook Terrance Knighton on the depth chart last season, but was viewed as a poor fit for new coach Gus Bradley's system. A pure run-stopper, Mosley should see somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 snaps behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley.

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley is "expected" to sign with the Lions.

The former Jaguar visited on Tuesday. Mosley was released just two days ago, and has yet to make any other visits. It doesn't sound like the Lions are going to give him the opportunity.

Free agent DT C.J. Mosley is visiting the Lions on Tuesday.

Mosley was released by the Jaguars on Monday. Highly productive against the run last season, Mosley would provide depth behind Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley in Detroit.

Jaguars released DT C.J. Mosley.

The move frees up $2.475 million in salary, but saves less than $500,000 versus the salary cap. Mosley was cut because the new Jaguars regime isn't high on his scheme fit under Gus Bradley; he wasn't a salary cap casualty. Mosley, 29, racked up 45 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season, playing for Mel Tucker. Tucker is now the defensive coordinator in Chicago.

Jaguars DT C.J. Mosley has passed Terrance Knighton on the depth chart.

Knighton missed three months after a nightclub brawl left him needing eye surgery. Mosley used that chance to seize the starting job and he hasn't looked back. Look for Knighton to rotate in behind Tyson Alualu and Mosley.

Jaguars re-signed DT C.J. Mosley to three-year, $7.5 million contract.

The deal includes $2 million guaranteed, and has incentives that could push its total value to $10 million. Mosley made just three starts and played 323 snaps last season, but was one of the top run stuffers for the league's ninth-ranked run defense.

Jaguars signed DL C.J. Mosley, formerly of the Browns.

Mosley, 27, has extensive starting experience, mostly in the 3-4 defense of Cleveland. He's played in a 4-3 system like Jaguars', though not since 2006 when he was a backup with Minnesota. He'll play tackle in Jacksonville.
