The Detroit Lions are finally start to sign some of their own players. As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, then later confirmed by the team, safety Tavon Wilson has re-signed with the team on a two-year deal worth $7 million.
There was some thought that the Lions may move on from Wilson. Not only did the Lions see some success late in the year from Quandre Diggs at strong safety after Wilson went down with a shoulder injury, but Detroit still has Miles Killebrew waiting in the wings. Killebrew was expected to make a big leap in 2017, but he actually saw his role with the team decrease as the season went on, especially after Wilson was injured.
But Wilson also has direct experience playing with new Lions head coach Matt Patricia. Before joining the Lions in 2016, Wilson played for four years with the Patriots after being drafted in the second round.
