Northcutt is a Lion after trade with Jaguars finalized

The Jaguars announced that they have finalized a trade that sends WR Dennis Northcutt to the Detroit Lions and brings safety Gerald Alexander to Jacksonville.

NFL.com’s Steve Wyche reported Friday that the teams had agreed to the deal, and the Jaguars’ official Web site said that Alexander was in Jacksonville on Monday for a physical.

Northcutt, 31, spent the past two years with the Jaguars after playing his first seven NFL seasons with the Browns. Alexander, 24, spent both of his NFL seasons with the Lions, but he was a backup last season after starting all 16 games as a rookie in 2007.
