The latest news on Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy, who was second on the team in tackles last year, was that he was going to sign his restricted free agency tender, and DetroitLions.com announced on Monday that he did just that. He was one of two Lions players to sign tenders, with offensive tackle Corey Hilliard the other.
As a reserve tackle in 2011, Hilliard started a single game but played in all 16 games in his third year with the Lions.
The Lions also announced in the same article that DT Sammie Hill has not yet signed his tender but has signed a waiver to participate in the Lions training program. Hill had one and a half sacks alongside 24 tackles in 2011.
