Lions Place Second-Round Tender On DE Willie Young
The Detroit Lions have decided to tender defensive end Willie Young a contract at the second-round level, according to Tim Twentyman. Young, who will become a restricted free at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, is now set to make $2.023 million in 2013.
Fellow restricted free agent Jason Fox was tendered at the original-round level on Monday, and he will get $1.323 million as a result. That's a difference of $700,000 compared to Young, and that is a notable amount given that the Lions don't have a ton of cap space.
The Lions probably settled on a second-round tender for Young because they didn't want to risk losing him.
