DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with defensive tackle Danny Shelton.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed that deal Wednesday. Shelton started 14 games last season for New England.

The Patriots also agreed to trade safety Duron Harmon to the Lions. The teams did not announce additional terms of the deal. The trade is pending a physical.

Lions coach Matt Patricia has familiarity with Harmon. Patricia is entering his third season as Detroit's coach and was New England's defensive coordinator before taking over the Lions.
