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.
