Lions Insider Tim Twentyman reported earlier that the Lions have agreed on two-year deals with T Jeff Backus and QB Shaun Hill.
Backus, who has started every game for the Lions since he was drafted in 2001, had this to say:
“It took longer than expected, but we’ve agreed to terms on a new contract that allows us to move forward and continue to work toward our ultimate goal, which is winning championships.
“I’m glad to have this opportunity to finish my career with the Detroit Lions. I’m looking forward to continuing our recent success and making a strong push toward winning a Super Bowl.”
