Stephen Tulloch is staying in Detroit.
A league source told PFT’s Mike Florio that Tulloch has signed a five-year deal to remain with the Lions.
After playing his first five seasons in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans, Tulloch signed a one-year contract with the Lions, where he could play with his old Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Tulloch started all 16 games and had a good season in Detroit.
There was some talk when free agency began that the Lions and Tulloch weren’t particularly close in their expectations for a contract extension, but once the Lions freed up some salary cap space by restructuring several contracts, working out a deal with Tulloch became the team’s top priority. And now the deal is done.
