The Lions made a big move to take care of one of their own.

Per a tweet from his agent Jonathan Feinsod, Lions left tackle Taylor Decker has agreed to terms on a six-year deal worth $85 million, with $37.5 million fully guaranteed.

The 2016 first-rounder was entering the option year of his rookie deal, and would have been an unrestricted free agent after this season.

He’s started 55 games the last four seasons, and established himself as a top player at his position, solidifying the line in front of quarterback Matthew Stafford.

  1. This guy really earns his pay check by getting one handed pancaked by Khalil Mack (who owns the Lions along with Trubisky) and breaks Stafford’s back. It’s coming again in like 10 days boys, get the stretcher ready. 3rd consecutive sweep, LoLions!

  2. This is the guy that gets dog walked by defensive ends and they give him an extension, wow! The Lions will Lion I guess, what a ridiculous amount of money for a below average performer.

  3. Reasonable contract considering the growth in the tackle market. Will probably look like a bargain in 2-3 years depending on what happens with the cap due to COVID.
