Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy was re-signed to a three-year deal on Wednesday. Levy's new deal means he is under contract with the Lions through 2015, and it means he won't become a free agent next week.
After the news of Levy's deal broke, several Lions players tweeted their congratulations to him.

Linebacker Stephen Tulloch got a new deal with the Lions last year. The other three players are all set to become free agents this year, meaning their time with the Lions could be coming to a close.
