The Detroit Lions and left guard Joe Dahl agreed to a two-year contract extension Tuesday, according to reports.
Dahl, in the final year of the four-year rookie contract he received as a fifth-round choice (151st overall) out of Washington State in 2016, is fighting for a spot in the starting lineup on the offensive line.
Dahl is listed at No. 2 on the Lions' first training camp depth chart behind seven-year veteran Kenny Wiggins, who has made 35 NFL starts.
According to the Detroit Free Press, though, Dahl took some first-team snaps in Tuesday's joint practice with the New England Patriots, and the new deal might be considered a vote of confidence.
Last season, he made one start and played a career-high 10 games after playing six games with three starts in 2017.
