Lions, Bodden agree on 4-year extension
The Lions and cornerback Leigh Bodden have agreed to a four-year contract extension, his agent Alvin Keels confirmed Thursday afternoon.
"He's definitely excited about the upcoming season," Keels said. "He hopes to be in Detroit for the remainder of his career."
Keels would not comment on the terms of the deal, but a league source said the contract is worth $27 million overall and includes $2 million up front and an $8.6-million roster bonus due in March.
Bodden, acquired from Cleveland in the Shaun Rogers trade this offseason, has two years left on his original contract. The new deal runs through 2013.
