Lions Agree to Terms with Nate Burleson

UPDATE II: John Clayton is reporting that the deal is worth $25 million and includes $11 million guaranteed.

UPDATE: Adam Schefter is reporting that Burleson agreed to a five-year deal.

Scout.com's Adam Caplan is reporting that wide receiver Nate Burleson has "agreed to terms on a deal with the Lions."  It was reported on Thursday that the Lions were interested in Burleson, as the team is hoping to add a wide receiver or two to give Matthew Stafford more targets in 2010.  Not only that, but after the likes of Bryant Johnson and Dennis Northcutt didn't exactly live up to the hype in 2009, it's important to find some new faces to add to the wide receiver position for 2010.

I will have more on Burleson when his deal becomes official.  Until then you can check out his stats from the 2009 season below.
