Glover Quin Will Earn $6.25 Million Next Season with Detroit Lions


Some of us have been waiting for the details of safety Glover Quin’s newly signed contract with the Detroit Lions to be released. Others, simply don’t care now that the Texans secondary is left with holes.

Either way, Quin’s new deal is worth $4.7 million a year, a little less than the $5 million or above benchmark he initially asked for himself. In 2013 he is set to make $6.25 million according to Chron.com, and earned a $750,000 roster bonus in 2016.

All of this is good news for Quin. Fellow defenders like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are set to make close to $5 million next season with the Denver Broncos, same goes for Chris Houston’s new five-year deal with the Detroit Lions – so Quin shouldn’t feel underpaid. For the Texans, Ed Reed is still a distinct possibility – as reports say he is happy with the ‘southern hospitality’ the team has shown him so far in his visit with Rick Smith.
