The #Detroit Lions have signed head coach #Jim Caldwell to a multi-year contract extension. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Insider, the signing happened this spring, but the Lions only reported it Saturday. The Lions did not disclose the length and the value of the contract. Caldwell assumed the position in 2014 and led the Lions to a 29-21 record through Week 2 of this season. In his three-plus seasons with the Lions, the team made it to the playoffs twice.

In his first season, Caldwell led the Lions to the playoffs with an 11-5 mark but missed the postseason the following year. In 2016, the Lions made it to the playoffs again behind the outstanding performance from #Matthew Stafford, who threw for 4,327 yards and 24 touchdowns with just ten interceptions.

Recently, the Lions made Stafford the highest-paid player in the NFL, signing him to a five-year deal worth $135 million. This season, Stafford has thrown for 414 yards, and six touchdowns with just one interception for a passer rating of 114.6 as the Lions improved to 2-0 with victories over the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Giants. They will face the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 Sunday.

Andrew Luck may return in Week 6

According to Rapoport, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck may start for the team in Week 6 when they take on the Tennessee Titans. Rapoport said Luck may join practice this week as he prepares for his season debut. The Colts may not have to rush Luck with the way backup Jacoby Brissett played in their 31-28 win over the Cleveland Browns.
