Lions make extension with LB DeAndre Levy official
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Lions have locked up one of their defensive leaders for four more years, agreeing to a contract extension with linebacker DeAndre Levy, the team announced. The deal is reportedly worth $33.7 million, with $20 million in guaranteed money.

Levy led the team in tackles a year ago with 117, added a career-high 2 1/2 sacks and is one of the best outside linebackers in the league. 

"He's a heck of a football player, just a playmaker on our defense versus the run and the pass," Lions GM Martin Mayhew said. "The guy's an impact player, so we definitely want to keep him on our defense."

Lions negotiating to re-sign Haloti Ngata, DeAndre Levy
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Lions are making a big push to re-sign defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker DeAndre Levy, according to The Detroit News. General manager Martin Mayhew said the team is in discussions with both player's agents on new deals. 

"[Levy's] a heck of a football player, just a playmaker on our defense," Mayhew said before training camp Tuesday. "Versus the run and the pass, the guy's an impact player, so we definitely want to keep him on our defense — very important to our football team. His leadership is also excellent, professional in every sense of the word, so he has a lot of value to us. And he's one of our own guys, so we want to definitely keep him around."

Ngata is entering his first season with the Lions after being traded from Baltimore in March.

"He's a phenomenal player," Mayhew said. "He can be an impact player for us as well along the defensive line. I don't really need to see a whole lot more. … I've seen enough to know that I want to have him around."

Lions have not started contract talks with DeAndre Levy
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Although Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy can become a free agent after the 2015 season, Lions president Tom Lewand said the team has not opened up discussions with Levy, reports MLive.com.

"It's way too early to be getting into any of those discussions," Lewand said. "I do think that you can have guidelines when it comes to negotiating. I'm not sure that when it comes to negotiating that policies or guidelines are ever absolute. We've done deals during the season, we've had deals where we don't talk during the season. In the case of DeAndre, we haven't even begun conversations with him, so I wouldn't know where those would take us, and we'll see where it goes, but every circumstance is a little bit different. We'll see where those conversations, once they start, take us."

In 2014, Levy produced 151 tackles and one interception.
