Dolphins agreed to terms with S Isa Abdul-Quddus, formerly of the Lions, on a three-year, $12.75 million contract.
Abdul-Quddus actually stepped in nicely as an eight-game starter for the Lions last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 overall safety from Week 10 on after replacing SS James Ihedigbo in the starting lineup. It's a good get for Miami, as at the very least, Abdul-Quddus will be an asset on special teams. He'll get the first crack at the starting gig next to SS Reshad Jones. Mar 9 - 4:43 PM

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.
