That salary can be considered team friendly as it’s average yearly amount is outside the NFL’s top-10 safeties paid.
“Glover is one of our team leaders, and throughout his career has been a consummate professional on and off the field,” Lions Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Quinn said. “We are thrilled that he will be a Lion for the next three seasons.”
Quin has been the heart and soul of the Lions defense since he joined the team in 2013. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2014 after leading the league in interceptions.
He has started every game during his time in Detroit. His 116-game starting streak dating back to his Texan days is the longest active streak for all NFL safeties. The 31-year old is the definition of an iron man.
Quin, who was going into the last season of his free agent contract, will now be 33-years old when his new extension expires.
