Glover Quin: May retire after being released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quin isn't sure if he will continue his football career, but he does at least plan to assess the opportunities offered, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Quin has 148 consecutive starts to his name, with most of those coming the past six years in Detroit. He's given some thought to retirement since the Lions released him last week, but he's also open to continuing his career if the right opportunity pops up. The 33-year-old finished 2018 with his lowest marks for snaps (829), passes defensed (three) and interceptions (zero) during his tenure in Detroit, losing some playing time to rookie third-round pick Tracy Walker late in the season. Quin still profiles as a competent starter, combining above-average coverage skills with functional tackling.

Glover Quin: Cut free by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quin was released by the Lions on Friday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The 33-year-old started all 96 games in his six seasons with Detroit, averaging 71 tackles and 3.2 interceptions per year. He was one of the better free safeties in the NFL during his prime, but the Lions would rather clear out $6.25 million in cap space at this stage of Quin's career. The veteran shouldn't have too much trouble finding a chance to compete for another starting job, while Tracy Walker is poised to take over as the top free safety in Detroit.

Lions' Glover Quin: Uncertain to remain with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quin seems likely to be cut if he doesn't retire this offseason, Mike Clay of ESPN reports.

A staple of the Lions secondary for six seasons now, Quin's performance declined in 2018 during his age-32 season, regardless of what his respectable stat line may suggest. Detroit could save over $6 million in cap space by letting him go, and that's a decision that seems much easier to make now that it may have been a year ago before 2018 third-rounder Tracy Walker flashed promise as a rookie. In any event, it's been a long time since Quandre Diggs took the torch from Quin as the Lions safety to own in IDP formats.

Lions' Glover Quin: Down year in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quin produced 74 tackles, one sack, and three pass breakups over 16 games in 2018.

The iron man that is Quin has now started 148 consecutive games, but in 2018 he logged a career low in snaps and went without a turnover for the first time since 2011. Part of the reason for his decrease in playing time was to get Pro-Bowl teammate Quandre Diggs on the field as often as possible in addition to seeing what third-round rookie Tracy Walker could do, but it could also be argued that the 33-year-old has lost a step. Prior to the regular-season finale against Green Bay, Quin said he wasn't sure if he'd continue his career in 2019 despite having one season left on his contract, per Michael Rothstein of ESPN. Even if Quin does return, the IDP asset to own in this secondary is clearly Diggs at this point.

Lions' Glover Quin: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Quin had seven solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Quin had an abnormally quiet performance last week against the Panthers with only a single tackle, but he responded Sunday to lead the Lions in tackles and record his first sack of the season. The 32-year-old isn't much of an IDP, as the seven tackles mark his second-highest total of the season, and he has zero interceptions or forced fumbles.
