DETROIT (AP) - Jon Jansen says he will sign a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions if he passes a physical.

Jansen said Friday, the same day the offensive tackle was cut by the Washington Redskins, that he is motivated to prove he can still contribute after injuries took a toll on his career. He wants to do it for his home state Lions.

Jansen started all but one game over seven seasons after being drafted from Michigan a decade ago, but didn't play in 2004 or in 2007 and was limited to 11 starts last season.

He had two years remaining on a five-year, $23 million contract extension he signed two years ago.

Jansen, from Clawson, Mich., and with an offseason home in the state, says he wants to help turn around the NFL's first 0-16 team.
