Lions extend RFA tenders

Detroit has not officially announced its decisions on restricted free agents, but the Detroit News and Mlive.com report all players have been informed of their status.

Of all the RFAs listed in the post immediately preceding this one, only two did not receive a tender: Linebacker Cody Spencer and defensive end Copeland Bryan. According to the News' John Niyo, defensive end Jason Hunter is the only RFA who got an elevated tender. That means the Lions would receive a second-round pick in compensation if they decided against matching an offer Hunter might receive.

Guard Daniel Loper received a low tender. The remaining RFAs received original-round tenders.
