Tackle Jonathan Scott, who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, has been signed by the Detroit Lions, the team that originally drafted him in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL draft, according to Mark Kaboly on Twitter.
Scott was released last week after Max Starks was signed back to the 90 man roster. The Steelers saved $2.2 million in releasing him to clear salary cap space.
Scott started his career in Detroit, but was released during the final cuts made prior to the 2008 season. He would go on to play with the Buffalo Bills in the 2008 and 2009 seasons under Sean Kugler, the Steelers current offensive line coach. Scott signed on with the Steelers as an unrestricted free agent in March of 2009 and was resigned to a two-year deal prior to the start of last season.
