According to Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions and free agent defensive tackle Danny Shelton have agreed upon a contract.
It is reportedly a two year, $8-million deal.
After Damon Harrison was released, the Lions needed to address the nose tackle position. Shelton, 26, is a 345 pounder and was a first round draft selection in 2015. He spent the first three years of his career with the Cleveland Browns and the last two seasons with the New England Patriots. He hasn’t exactly lived up to his draft hype, but he had a solid year overall a season ago.
In 2019, he started 14 games and accumulated 61 total tackles and 3.0 sacks.
