Detroit Lions, Nick Fairley Agree To Terms On Deal

The Detroit Lions have agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Nick Fairley. His deal is four years long (with a fifth-year option) and is worth $10 million. The deal, according to Dave Birkett, is fully guaranteed and includes a first-year bonus of $5.7 million.

With Fairley's deal done, the Lions have signed or agreed to terms with all five of their draft picks. Johnny Culbreath was the first to get his deal done, and Doug Hogue, Mikel Leshoure and Titus Young all proceeded to do the same throughout today. Fairley is the final Lions draft pick to agree to terms, and he is quite happy to officially join the team.

Thanks mainly to the new rookie wage system, the Lions signed all five of their rookies with about 12 hours to go before the first practice. That is very good.
