Glover Quin

Aren’t you glad the Lions didn’t sign Goldson and took the chance on a little know guy by the name of quin? Glover turned in a Pro Bowl season that included leading the league in interceptions. It’s hard not put Quin in that elite safety bracket. I would expect Quin to build upon his breakout season this year.

James Ihedigbo

The man called Digs came in to little fan fare and is now looked at as a major piece of the puzzle in Detroit. Digs put forth a great season recording 71 tackles, 2 sacks and 4 interceptions. He did have a boneheaded play against Tampa Bay that made me want to throw things at people. But other than that he was nice asset and with him and Quin together, the Lions have a top 5 safety tandem. Here’s hoping Digs can play the entire season this year.

Don Carey

Carey also dealt with some injuries last season that kept him on the sideline for some time. When Carey was playing he didn’t put together a very good season notching only 12 tackles. Carey is a guy that usually gets about 40 tackles a year. If he can stay healthy, there will be spot for him on the team.

Isa Abdul-Quddus

it’s still crazy to think that Quddus was very close to joining Quin at the Pro Bowl. In a special teams capacity of course. I’m a fan of Quddus. He’s the kind of guy that has the ability to be a starter someday. We know he’s great  on special teams. But he also supplies solid depth to the safety position and I’m looking at him to take a big step this season. As a backup.
