ALLEN PARK Jared Cook Jersey , Mich. (AP) — When healthy, Robert Ayers has been a pretty productive pass rusher.

The Detroit Lions could use some help in that area, and now the veteran defensive end has a chance to provide it.

The Lions signed Ayers in their latest attempt to bolster their defensive front. Now entering his 10th NFL season, Ayers made 10 starts in each of the past two seasons with Tampa Bay. He has 35 sacks, including a career-high 9½ with the New York Giants in 2015.

“For me, as a young guy, when I first got in the league, he was one of the veterans that I just paid a lot of attention to,” said Detroit linebacker Devon Kennard Eric Kendricks Jersey , who was with the Giants when Ayers was there. “Just how he handled his business, how he went about film and taking care of his body and stuff.”

The Lions also announced Monday that they had waived cornerback Josh Okonye. They did not announce these moves until shortly after coach Matt Patricia had finished his news conference, so he was not available to comment on Ayers’ addition. Ayers would not speak with reporters after practice.

Ayers was a first-round draft pick in 2009 by the Denver Broncos. He spent five seasons with them and then two with the Giants.

Ayers has only played in 12 games in each of the past four seasons. He dealt with concussion and shoulder problems toward the end of last season, and he has also had ankle and pectoral muscle issues in the past few years. He turns 33 on Sept. 6.

But in his 48 games over the past four seasons, Ayers had 23 sacks, and if he can keep pressuring the quarterback, he can help the Lions. Only three NFC teams had fewer sacks than Detroit last season, even though defensive end Ziggy Ansah had a dozen by himself. Kerry Hyder had eight sacks in 2016, but missed all of last season with an Achilles tendon injury.

“We keep bringing more pieces in Daniel Kilgore Jersey ,” said defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, himself a new addition after playing for New England last season. “(General manager) Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia see something, so they just want to keep bringing in people that can help the pass rush, so that’s a plus. They see that’s an area we need to improve in.”

Ayers has started 31 games over the past three seasons.

“He was a guy that showed me some love as a young guy, so I have a lot of respect for him and how he goes about his business,” Kennard said. “It’s a pleasure to have him as a teammate again.”

NOTES: News of Odell Beckham Jr.’s big new contract made its way into the Lions’ locker room Monday, and Detroit receiver Golden Tate was certainly an interested party. “I like seeing it as a receiver. That’s my position, obviously,” Tate said. “The guys that got paid this offseason are big-time players Alex McGough Jersey , so I love seeing those guys get paid. Quite frankly, I hope everybody gets paid. This is a tough game to play in. It’s a tough game to play for a long time, so to hear about that Odell deal, I’m excited. Another guy I’m going to hit up for a vacation here soon.” Tate signed a five-year deal with the Lions in 2014. He said he’s focused on training camp and isn’t preoccupied about any negotiations for a new contract.

With the race to launch sports betting programs officially begun, West Virginia’s effort to get ahead of the curve continues to be bogged down by the question of whether the state will give the sports leagues a money-for-nothing “integrity fee.”

In the aftermath of a closed-door meeting brokered by Governor Jim Justice (pictured), who has a clear conflict of interest by virtue of his ownership of a resort that does business with the NFL and the PGA, a West Virginia lawmaker is seeking access to any and all information discussed and disclosed during the session.

Shawn Fluharty, a Delegate from Ohio County, has sent a letter to the director of the state’s Lottery Commission seeking information under the Freedom of Information Act. The letter seeks all meeting notes Danny Etling Jersey , sign-in sheets, email messages discussing the meeting, handouts distributed during the meeting, visitor logs, and any video surveillance of the room at the Lottery Commission where the meeting was held.

The information should shed plenty of light both on the involvement of Justice and his advisors in attempting to cajole the state’s casinos into paying the integrity fee, along with whatever the sports leagues may be saying or doing to try to squeeze West Virginia to pay the fee.
