The Detroit Lions re-signed tight end Brandon Pettigrew to a four-year, $16 million contract Friday with half of the money guaranteed. Pettigrew had an off year in 2013, making 41 catches for 416 yards with two touchdowns, his lowest numbers in each category since his rookie season in 2009. Pettigrew said he wanted to stay with the Lions because he is in "a groove" with his teammates, including quarterback Matthew Stafford. Before re-signing, Pettigrew tested the free-agent market including interest from the New York Giants and New York Jets.
