Glover Quin to visit Lions

It’s still up in the air whether the Lions will be bringing safety Louis Delmas back for another season, but that’s not stopping them from looking at other options.

According to multiple reports, safety Glover Quin will visit the Lions in the coming days. Quin, who also played cornerback with the Texans, is ranked 38th on PFT‘s list of the top 100 free agents this offseason.

The five-year, $30 million deal William Moore signed to remain with the Falcons could provide some guidance about the kind of deal Quin can hope to receive. Quin’s a little younger, but he hasn’t been as productive as Moore has been in recent years and will likely have to settle for a bit less when he winds up signing.

Delmas, meanwhile, is reportedly on the Rams’ radar. New Rams defensive coordinator Tim Walton was Delmas’ position coach with Detroit before leaving to join Jeff Fisher’s staff in St. Louis and Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the team is targeting Delmas for a reunion.

    Why on earth would he want to play for the Lions?

    What are the Lions front office thinking?!

    Quinn shouldn’t be mentioned as a starting S, remember C.C Brown? Same exact player, awful in pass coverage and was a product of Texans D (pass rush and cbs).

    Bush on his way, I’ve already made the case for us to pursue Chris Ivory for much less, just as good and younger.

    We have $9mil to play with, these two are NOT the building blocks we need (Bush at the right $ ok) but not excited to the start of our FA.

    As a Texans fan, I have to be disappointed at the direction of the franchise. The decision to overpay Matt Schaub will cost our defense 2 starters.
    Rick Smith should have let Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub walk to save the salary cap space.

    matzahballz, c.c was no where near the same talent level and this is a completely different Texas defense and different player! What u just said makes no sense
