“I don’t have a problem saying this, but I think personally we have more talent than we had in the No. 1 defense last year in Detroit.”
“This time of year particularly, when you get as many guys banged up as we’ve got banged up of late in the last week and a half or so those things enter in, so it changes it up a little bit.”
The Detroit Lions have agreed to a four-year contract extension with linebacker DeAndre Levy.
Rapoport is reporting the Lions have extended star LB DeAndre Levy.
DeAndre Levy’s career-best production last season has the Detroit Lions hoping to come to an agreement that would keep him with the team beyond 2015.
DeAndre Levy of the Detroit Lions might be one of the NFL’s best linebackers.
“We’ve had some dialogue with him,” Mayhew said. “I think it’s ongoing at this point.”
The team’s official stance on wing-walking, per team president Tom Lewand: “Don’t fall.”
With Levy, the Lions could negotiate into the season if need be, though talks about an extension have not even started yet.
