Lions Give Tony Scheffler 3-Year Contract Extension

The Denver Post is reporting that the Lions have signed tight end Tony Scheffler to a three-year contract extension.

Scheffler was traded to Detroit from Denver back in April in a three-team trade that saw Ernie Sims go to Philadelphia. The Lions have been so impressed with Scheffler so far this season that they decided to go ahead and extend his contract now. Here are the details of the extension:

The new deal includes a $2 million signing bonus which will help compensate Scheffler for the team-favorable $1.176 million salary he received as a tendered restricted free agent.

Scheffler is now the second Lion to receive a contract extension this season. Previously, Rob Sims got his contract extended by four years.
