According to Chris Burke of The Athletic, DeShon Elliott‘s contract with the Detroit Lions is for 1-year and is worth the vet-minimum $965,000.
This amount is much less than the original $3.65 million that was reported by Josina Anderson.
*NOTE: This DOES NOT include the signing bonus so it could still end up at $3.65 M.

It looks as though the visit went well.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions have signed safety DeShon Elliott to a one-year contract:
The former #Ravens 6th rounder has shown plenty of promise when healthy, most notably during 2020 while starting 16 games. Would be a potentially key signing for Detroit if he stays on the field. https://t.co/MZGZhuNp5q
