Lions’ website says they really did sign Glover Quin

OK, this Glover Quin thing is getting a little ridiculous.

First we had the report that the Lions signed Quin, a free agent safety from Houston. Then we had the report that the Lions haven’t really signed Quin.

Now Tim Twentyman, the lead writer for the Lions’ website, is saying a five-year deal between the Lions and Quin really is done.

But wait! Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle reported that the Texans still had a chance to keep Quin. But then Ganguli passed along the report from the Lions’ website, which would seem to be official.

So we think Quin really is a Lion. Perhaps the Lions can avoid any confusion by sending white smoke through the chimney of the team facility when Quin signs his contract.

  1. Taking Glover from the Texans……is possibly the move that will save both Mayhew and J. Schwartz. There is no way the Lions offered that much more money than the Texans. Cause we don’t have it. So he CHOSE, like Reggie Bush, to come to a 4-12 team. Players must like Schwartz and our coaches and Calvin and Stafford. A good QB is more important to most FA’s than anything else. And Houston doesn’t have a good QB

  2. I wouldn’t thank Mayhew, he drafted a guy with a torn ACL in the 2nd Round last year. These signings are the work of the future Lions GM Brian Xanders.

  3. Lions fans need to put down their government-issued smart phones and get back in the unemployment line.

  4. Now trade Suh for Revis straight up and call it a day.

    Suh is leaving anyway when his contact is up, so is Revis.

    Both are considered high end talent.

    There is no such thing as “exact equal value” when swapping people and picks but why not swap 2 malcontents?

  5. Kpow55 I was in the same boat as you until suh is the reason we even got these guys cause he restructured his deal. They also are going to start looking at an extension with suh and a Stafford restructure to clear more cap space next year.

    i thought the same, but after today not so much. i think his agent went as far to say ndamakung is determined to win a superbowl in detroit and they are looking at an extension now..
