Once considered the heart of the Detroit Lions' defense, Deandre Levy will be hoping to catch on with another team in 2017.

Levy, who turns 30 on March 26th,  missed most of the last two seasons with injuries.  He missed 15 games in 2015 with a hip injury, and then missed 11 games last year with a knee injury.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Levy has three years and nearly $19 million left on the four-year extension he signed before the start of the 2015 season.  The paper reports that he’s due to make $5.75 million in base salary next season, with another $240,000 available in per-game roster bonuses.

The Lions drafted Levy in the third round in 2009 out of Wisconsin.
