Fans of the Detroit Lions, get used to this picture—he's going to be around at least for another season.

ALLEN PARK, Mich.—The Detroit Lions have restructured the contract of Daunte Culpepper and signed potential free agents Jason Hanson and Stephen Peterman to long-term deals.

The team did not release terms for any of the contracts announced Tuesday. Culpepper, who came out of retirement midway through last year's 0-16 season, was due to receive a $2.5 million roster bonus later this month. Team president Tom Lewand said that the deal had been restructured. Culpepper is still on the last year of a two-year contract.

Detroit signed Hanson, their kicker since 1992, to a four-year deal and re-signed Peterman, a starting guard, for five more seasons.
