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.

Locking up DeAndre Levy is not high priority for Lions
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With linebacker DeAndre Levy already signed for the 2015 season, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said signing Levy to a long-term deal will have to wait, reports MLive.com.

The Lions are currently discussing a contract with Ndamukong Suh and Mayhew said the team needs to concentrate on getting that deal done before any other moves can be made.

"[A long-term extension for Levy] may make sense, it may not," Mayhew said. "I'm not opposed to it. I obviously want him to be here a long time, but, you know, we obviously have some other big fish in the pan right now."

Levy will be a free agent after the 2015 season and Mayhew said he wants to keep Levy with the Lions.

"He's been outstanding, should have been in the Pro Bowl," Mayhew said. "He's one of the best 4-3 outside linebackers in the NFL, without question. You want to keep guys like that."
