Lions agree to terms with K David Akers

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Lions have added kicker David Akers one day after Jason Hanson retired.

Akers' agent, Jerrold Colton, confirmed Friday that he and the Lions agreed to terms. Colton declined to give details.

The Lions didn't have to look long to find someone to replace Hanson, who retired Thursday, ending his 21-year career in Detroit.

San Francisco released Akers a month ago after he slumped during the 2012 season. The six-time Pro Bowl kicker made 73 of 94 field goals over two seasons for the 49ers. He underwent double hernia surgery in February 2012 then aggravated the area during the season when he slipped on the field during practice.

Akers has made 367 of 453 field goals in his career with Washington, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
