Linebacker DeAndre Levy and offensive tackle Corey Hilliard have signed their restricted free agent tenders and are both participating in the Lions offseason training program, which began today.
Defensive tackle Sammie Hill has yet to sign his original-round tender ($1.26 million), but he did sign a waiver in order to participate in the training program.
Hill can entertain offers from other teams until April 20. The Lions have until April 25 to match any offer or receiver a fourth-round pick in the draft from any team that signs him.
Levy’s been a three-year starter at both inside and outside linebacker for the Lions. He finished last season with 109 tackles. Levy was given a second-round tender worth $1.93 million.
Hilliard played in all 16 games and made one start at right tackle last year. He is a valuable backup who can play both tackle spots. Hilliard’s original-round tender (sixth round) was worth $1.26 million.
