Lehman Agrees to Terms With Lions
DETROIT (AP) _ Linebacker Teddy Lehman, the Detroit Lions’ second-round pick, has agreed to terms with the team.
Lehman is expected to offer immediate help at linebacker and possibly special teams.
A 6-foot-2, 238 pounder, he won the 2003 Butkus Award as college football’s top linebacker and the Chuck Bednarik Award as the nation’s best defensive player.
Lehman was the leader of Oklahoma’s top-ranked defense, helping the Sooners make the Bowl Championship Series title game, which they lost to LSU. He led the Sooners with 109 tackles, including 17 for losses. He also had one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.
For his Sooners career, Lehman recorded 323 tackles, six sacks, four interceptions, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries while starting 38 of 51 games.
