The Lions are releasing Levy, the Detroit Free Press reports. Limited to just six appearances over the last two seasons, Levy has been unable to make good on the four-year, $37 million contract he signed before the 2015 campaign. The Lions may still have interest in retaining him at a reduced price, as Levy was an elite performer in 2013 and 2014, tallying 270 tackles and seven interceptions while playing in all 32 games. He'll turn 30 in late March.
Levy (knee) is active for Saturday's contest at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. After missing the bulk of the season due to quad and knee injuries, Levy has suited up for each of the last four games, accruing 17 tackles (15 solo) while logging 51 percent of the defensive snaps.
Levy (knee) is questionable to play in Saturday's wild-card playoff game in Seattle. Levy hasn't missed a game since making his return from a knee injury in Week 14 despite being listed as questionable on a regular basis.
Levy (knee) is active for Sunday night's regular season finale against Green Bay. Just like in previous weeks, Levy was listed as questionable on the Lions' official injury report but was ultimately cleared to play.
Levy (knee) is questionable to play in Week 17 versus the Packers. Levy has nursed a troublesome knee all season and was listed as a limited participant in every practice the Lions held this week. With no reported setbacks and the NFC North championship on the line, we suspect Levy will we be cleared to play prior to the start of Sunday's game.
