Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata has agreed to a two-year contract to remain with the Lions, his agent confirmed on Twitter.
NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports the deal is worth $12 million, and will pay him $6.25 million in the first year.
Ngata, 32, was acquired in a trade with the Ravens last off-season. He started 14 games for Detroit in his first season with the team, recording 2.5 sacks and 15 total tackles.
The Ravens traded Ngata after the two sides could not agree on a restructured contract. Baltimore received a fourth-round pick and a fifth-round pick, while Detroit also acquired a seventh-round pick from the Ravens.
Ngata was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro selection in nine seasons with Baltimore.
