Lions signed FS Glover Quin to a two-year, $13 million extension through 2019.

31-year-old Quin was entering a contract year, so he's now under Lions control for the next three seasons with the ability to earn $18 million total over that stretch. A stabilizing force in Detroit's inconsistent secondary, Quin forced only three turnovers in 16 starts last year, but earned Pro Football Focus' No. 32 pass-coverage grade among 91 qualified safeties.

The Lions and contract-year FS Glover Quin have engaged in extension negotiations.

Quin turned 31 earlier this year but believes he has 3-4 more "high-level" years left. Based on his age, it probably wouldn't take more than $6 million annually to lock Quin up to another multi-year deal. Quin led the league in interceptions in 2014 and has always had a nose for the ball with 21 career picks. Quin was Pro Football Focus' No. 35 safety out of 91 qualifiers in 2016.

Lions FS Glover Quin (ankle) has been limited at the onset of OTAs.

Quin underwent a "small procedure" to relieve the pain in his ankle after the season ended. He'll be all systems go for minicamp and training camp later this summer. In the Lions' new defense, Quin is expected to play an Ed Reed-type deep safety role. He'll be more of a center fielder than he was last season.

Glover Quin will play the Ed Reed role in DC Teryl Austin's scheme.

Austin was Reed's position coach in Baltimore in 2011 and 2012. Quin will no longer play sides like he did under Gunther Cunningham, instead dropping to the deeper part of the field and reading the quarterback. It's a free safety position built for players with a nose for the ball, something Quin has shown during his five-year career. He's recorded 57 pass breakups, eight interceptions and four forced fumbles.

Lions SS Glover Quin (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot Wednesday.

Quin went down late in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh and didn't return. His potential absence would be another concern for a Lions pass defense that is already ranked 30th in the league. Quin has graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 19 safety among 85 qualifiers so far this year.
