The Lions don’t report for the start of offseason work until April 7, but their projected starting safeties are getting a jump on things in Texas. Both Glover Quin and the newly signed James Ihedigbo live in Texas and they’ve worked out together since Ihedigbo decided to join the Lions as a free agent this offseason. That work is some of the first that Quin has done since having arthroscopic surgery on his ankle after the season and Quin expects to participate in all offseason work even though he isn’t quite 100 percent recovered from the operation. Quin also expects a smooth transition to the new partnership despite a shift from strong to free safety. “It’s not that big of a deal,” Quin said, via the Detroit Free Press. “Strong safety, free safety; it’s not that big of a difference. I think a lot of people get caught up and think it’s more than what it really is. It’s really just a title and where you line up on the field.” Ihedigbo echoed Quin’s feelings while discussing the way defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, Ihedigbo’s position coach in Baltimore, will highlight the versatility of the unit. “It’s very exotic,” Ihedigbo said, via the Detroit News. “The things that we do, the different pressures that we bring, the different coverage styles. It’s different, but it’s going to be fun to watch. He’s going to put a lot of guys in different positions to make plays.”
