Culpepper back, Hanson re-signs
Lions president Tom Lewand said today that quarterback Daunte Culpepper has restructured his contract and will return next season. Terms of the new deal were not immediately available, but Culpepper is still on a one-year deal.
Kicker Jason Hanson, who was slated to become a free agent next week, also has agreed to a new four-year contract. The Lions were prepared to use the franchise tag on Hanson had the two sides not agreed to a long-term deal by Thursday.
