Lions agree to deal with LB Stephen Tulloch
Linebacker was definitely a position of need for the Lions. They addressed it on Sunday by signing Stephen Tulloch, according to reports from the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Lions won’t confirm the deal until he takes a physical and signs the contract. It’s a one-year contract worth $3.25 million, including $1.8 million in guaranteed money according to several reports.
Tulloch will play in the middle shifting DeAndre Levy to the outside.
Earlier in the week the Lions also signed free agent linebacker Justin Durant.
Tulloch comes from the Tennessee Titans where he was teammates and friends with Kyle Vanden Bosch who said earlier in the week he’d be happy to make a call to Tulloch. He also played for Jim Schwartz who was defensive coordinator with the Titans.
In a tweet on Sunday morning Tulloch thanks his Titans’ teammates for a great five years but said it was time to move on.
