Glover Quin looking forward to challenge of changing secondary

Glover Quin is no stranger to personnel changes in the defensive backfield for the Lions.

The team will have a different starter at strong safety for the fourth time in the four years that Quin has been in Detroit. Numerous names have come and gone at the position over the last three years, including Louis DelmasJames Ihedigbo, and Isa Abdul-Quddus.

At this point, it seems like Rafael Bush would be the likely choice to earn the spot out of camp based on experience, but Tavon Wilson and Miles Killebrew will also compete for the job.

“I don’t really think of it as being hard to me,” Quin told the Detroit News. “Throughout my whole career I feel like it’s kind of been a situation where I’ve had to do a lot of communicating. … I take it as a challenge to be the consistent guy that can focus on my job and also focus on helping the other guys as well.”

Killebrew, who has linebacker size and strength, was selected by the Lions with their fourth round pick in this year’s draft. Projected to be an instant impact maker on special teams, he will likely be the long shot for the safety job.

Wilson, who signed on the first day of free agency, has some experience. He played in 54 games over the first four years of his career, all with the New England Patriots.

“Whoever is out there, obviously the coaches feel that they should be out there, and if they put them out there, it’s time to go to work,” Quin said.
