Lions SS Isa Abdul-Quddus has recorded 25 tackles while starting the last four games.
Abdul-Quddus took over the starting job from James Ihedigbo in Week 10 and has not looked back. A 2011 UDFA out of Fordham, Abdul-Quddus credits a focus on improved tackling this offseason for his rise from special teamer to defensive starter. "I had to adapt and get used to the run fits and stuff," Abdul-Quddus said. "I’m a bit more versatile now because I started out at free safety. Last year I started playing more strong safety. I get to play a lot of different positions at safety and it’s helped me hone my skills." Abdul-Quddus's ascension to the starting lineup has coincided with a defensive revival in Detroit.
