  • The two spent the offseason working out together and are said to have developed chemistry early. There is also a rumor floating around that Ihedigbo may be battling an injury, however that has yet to be officially confirmed. Either way the former Ravens defender has a great locker room presence and makes a great replacement for the departed Louis Delmas.

    Also in the Lions secondary are Don Carey, Jerome Couplin, and Isa Abdul-Quddus.

    DeJon Gomes’ injury opened a roster spot and both Isa Abdul-Quddus and Jerome Couplin took advantage with very strong preseasons.
