>>Packers’ Lang Leaves For Detroit, Gets Three Year, $28.5 Million Deal
(Allen Park, MI) — Veteran guard T-J Lang will become a Detroit Lion after he agreed Sunday to a three year contract worth 28-point-five million dollars, including 19-million in guaranteed money. The 29-year-old Lang tells the Detroit Free Press he received offers from the Packers, Detroit, and Seattle, and he visited the Seahawks on Saturday. The Packers were hoping to keep their eight year veteran, but the price was apparently not right. Lang is from the Detroit area — and he’s had several injuries the past three years to a knee, foot, ankle, back, shoulder, and hip. Still, he only missed five games since he was starter for Green Bay the last six seasons.
