Sources: The #Lions have agreed to terms with Quandre Diggs on a 3-year extension worth $20.4M. After only 5 games playing safety last year, Detroit really liked what they saw. Big payday for the playmaking former 6th rounder who some thought was too small to thrive in the NFL 💰

Though Diggs only played 5 games at safety for the Lions in 2017, Bob Quinn and company obviously saw enough to pay him higher annual salary than they pay Glover Quinn.
Originally drafted by the Lions in the 6th Round of the 2015 NFL Draft, Diggs originally started off at cornerback before switching over to safety late in the 2017 season. Last season, in 16 games (11 starts), Quinn had nine passes defended and three interceptions.
