Lions coach Jim Caldwell said he wants holdout SS James Ihedigbo to return to the team "pronto."

A top-15 safety by PFF last season, Ihedigbo is due just $1.1 million in the final year of his contract. At 31 years old, Ihedigbo does not have many years left to cash in. This holdout could last well into the summer.

Lions SS James Ihedigbo is holding out of OTAs as he seeks a new contract.

Per Ihedigbo's agent, he "does not plan to report to any Lions offseason activities until he and the team come to terms on a new contract." Now 31, Ihedigbo is headed into the second season of a two-year, $3.15 million deal. Already paid a $500,000 roster bonus, Ihedigbo is due just $1.1 million after grading out as PFF's No. 14 safety in 2014. Ihedigbo has a case for a raise, but his holdout is unlikely to concern the Lions until it extends to June's mandatory minicamp.

Lions S James Ihedigbo (back) is listed as probable for Week 11 after practicing on Friday.

Ihedigbo was not able to practice Thursday after waking up with a sore back. He felt better on Friday, and said after practice, "I'll be playing." Ihedigbo has been a force for the Lions' top-rated defense, notching 36 tackles, two sacks and an interception in six games this season.

Lions S James Ihedigbo (neck) is listed as probable for Sunday's Week 4 clash with the Jets.

Ihedigbo has missed the first three games of the season with a neck injury. Barring a setback, he will make his season debut against the Jets. With Stephen Tulloch (knee) lost for the season, Ihedigbo's run-stopping prowess will be a welcome addition to the Lions' defense.
Sat, Sep 27, 2014 10:17:00 AM

Lions S James Ihedigbo (neck, knee) returned to practice Friday, but was limited.

Ihedigbo has missed more than a week of practice, but should be ready to go when the Lions open their season Monday night. Detroit would turn to rookie Jerome Couplin if Ihedigbo is unable to go.

Lions signed SS James Ihedigbo, formerly of the Ravens, to a two-year contract.

Ihedigbo replaces Louis Delmas next to Glover Quin on Detroit's back end. He's coming off a career year of 101 tackles and the first three interceptions of Ihedigbo's seven-year career. The 30-year-old reunites with DC Teryl Austin, Baltimore's DBs coach the past two seasons. Ihedigbo is a strong leader and can play special teams. He's typically been a liability in pass coverage.
