Jansen Willing to Play Where the Lions Need Him on the O-Line

MLive.com reports that the Lions new O-linemen Jon Jansen says he’s happy playing anywhere on the teams O-line this fall:

Jansen is with the Detroit Lions and he’s looking to land a job. He doesn’t care where it is — right or left tackle, either guard position and, surprisingly, center. “Yeah, we’re going to take a look at him there,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “I want to make myself as marketable as possible,” Jansen said. “You’ve got to play all five spots if you’re going to be a backup.” – “Right now, I’m just trying to get the playbook down, but I anticipate getting reps at just about ever spot on the line,” Jansen said. “If I can be the right tackle, that’s great. If I can be the center or left guard or right guard, I just want to be on the field. And I want to be part of a quality line.”
