Lions re-sign DeAndre Levy to multi-year deal

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions have re-signed linebacker DeAndre Levy to a multi-year deal.

The Detroit Lions have agreed to a new contract with linebacker DeAndre Levy, according to Tim Twentyman. The contract is for multiple years, although no specifics beyond that are known right now.

With Levy being re-signed, the Lions now have two of their starters at linebacker under contract for next season and beyond. Justin Durant is now the only starter at linebacker from last season who is set to become a free agent. There's obviously still time for the Lions to work something out with him, but perhaps re-signing Levy means Durant will not be back. Durant wants to return to the Lions, but it's possible Levy's new deal could mean Durant is the odd man out.

Levy, who was a third-round pick of the Lions back in 2009, had 82 total tackles in 14 games last season (he made 13 starts). He also had 3 pass defenses and 1 interception for the Lions.

Levy is the second player who has re-signed with the Lions in the last week. Last Friday, offensive tackle Corey Hilliard was re-signed to a two-year deal.

UPDATE: NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that Levy's deal is for three years.
