Nate Burleson WR CLE Dec 02 '78

Nate Burleson has agreed to restructure his contract, which will likely keep him with the Lions in 2013.

Details are unknown, but Burleson was scheduled to reel in a $4.5 million base salary in 2013, a year after breaking his leg. Burleson, 31, is one of the leaders for Detroit, so it makes sense to keep him around on a young team looking for direction. He's said he expects to be ready for the offseason program.
