That didn't take long.

The Lions have found a wide receiver to fill Calvin Johnson's roster spot less than 24 hours after the 30-year-old retired.

Marvin Jones has agreed to a contract with the Lions, according to multiple reports. The deal is expected to be worth $8 million annually.

The wide receiver amassed 65 catches for 816 yards last season with the Bengals.

Get this: Jones told NFL Network's Michael Silver he chose the Lions over the Patriots and Bengals.

Jones missed the entire 2014 season because of injury.
