Lions add DE Dwight Freeney off waivers from Seahawks

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have added Dwight Freeney off waivers from Seattle.

Detroit acquired the 37-year-old Freeney on Wednesday, a day before hosting the Minnesota Vikings in a possibly pivotal game for the NFC North title.

The Lions need help at defensive end in part because Ezekiel Ansah is questionable with a back injury that has kept him out of the last two games.
