As @ttwentyman said, the Lions and LB DeAndre Levy have agreed to terms. I'm told it's a three-year deal.

Levy, who has started 50 games for the Lions over the past four seasons, was selected by the Lions in the third-round of the 2009 draft. In 14 games, Levy compiled 83 tackles, and one interception last season. In his four year career, he forced seven turnovers for the Lions.
Many speculated the outside linebacker they'd bring back for 2013, would be Justin Durant. Now the Lions and Durant will sit down and see if they can create a fair price to bring both parties together.
