REPORT: Lions rework DT Akeem Spence’s contract

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Detroit Lions and DT Akeem Spence have agreed to rework his contract for this upcoming season.

The sixth-year defensive tackle is going into his second season with the Lions. His base salary will drop from his original $3.15-million to $2.575-million– which should help create a little over a half-million dollars in cap space.

Spence’s decreased cost may help subdue the unfounded rumblings that he would be one of the first cuts if the Lions needed to make cap space.

Defensive end, Cornelius Washington, is another potential cap casualty candidate to look out for. He has a $3.5-million cap hit and did not live up to his price tag a year ago. He does offer some scheme versatility though… and we all know how important that trait is to GM Bob Quinn.
