Free Agent S James Ihedigbo Deciding Between The Lions & Bears?

 

Update:

According to Dave Birkett, it “sounds” like free agent S James Ihedigbo is deciding between signing with the Lions or the Bears right now.

  • Aaron Wilson recently reported that Ihedigbo is considering multiple offers, but the Ravens aren’t expected to match any of them.

Ihedigbo visited with the Lions a week ago, but ultimately left without a contract. He changed agents recently, so there a chance that an agreement could be in place at some point in the near future.

Ihedigbo, 30, is one of the best available safeties, and both the Lions and Bears could really use some help at the position. Last year, he totaled 100 tackles, three interceptions, a forced fumble and two recoveries for the Ravens defense.

Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 safety in league last season. We have him listed as the No. 15 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

——–

Aaron Wilson reports that the Baltimore Ravens have maintained interest re-signing free agent S James Ihedigbo this offseason.

  • Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reported earlier in the day that Ihedigbo has hired a new agent in recent weeks.
  • Birkett adds that the Lions can now resume pursuit of Ihedigbo if they happen to still be interested in signing him.

———–

Dave Birkett reports that free agent S James Ihedigbo is leaving Detroit without a contract. However, Ihedigbo reportedly mentioned that it’s very possible he signs with a team soon.

  • Birkett adds that Ihedigbo needs to get his agent situation squared away.

Ihedigbo, 30, makes sense for the Lions given that they have an obvious need at safety and Ihedigbo played for new Lions DC Teryl Austin for the past two years in Baltimore.

how do the Bears not even attempt to try to sign Him? why would anyone want to go to Detroit?

This would be a pretty big pick up for the Bears, if he were to come to Chicago. It would free us up to draft a D-lineman in the first round and possibly the second as well. If anything, it would allows to a depth in the draft instead of expecting a rookie to come in and “save the day”.

I’ve been to 1 Super Bowl Parade with Chicago in 86, Why not the Bears in 2014? If every team, outside of say Cleveland, or Jacksonville, all want to win a Championship. That’s every teams goal. No one gets a parade for losing the SB. Come to Chi-town, so we can dump Chris Conte in Lake Michigan with a nice pair of cement shoes.

Gee, what a choice. Thug nation or the Charter NFL franchise with a chance to be in the SB in 2014. Guess we will see how smart he is.

Are you implying that the Bears could be in the Super Bowl with Jay Cutler as their quarterback? If so, please roll over so that your wife can wake you up from your dream Dave!

I am a Bears fan, NOT a Cutler fan, so I totally agree. There’s a reason why Denver let him go and now we will understand why.

I don’t disagree entirely with you Mike. It’s just that I truly believe Stafford has quite a bit more upside to him than Cutler has, but again, it is just an opinion.

Phil, The reason why NFL analysts and such don’t really like Cutler is because he was supposed to be the “second coming of Jesus for a QB”. He has not lived up to the hype and they are upset me made them look bad, but that is not because he doesn’t have the talent it is because poor Jay Cutler has had a ton of diversity at his position. In his tenure in the NFL he has had to learn 3 different offenses, his coaches were never around long enough before another one came in and he has been surrounded… Read more »

Michael, I have to admit that the Bears most certainly improved their defense, at least on the DL with their recent signings and you have two very scary WR’s. However, when it comes to Cutler, I liken him to be the “Tony Romo North”, talented, but there will always be something that will frustrate him, therefore, as a Lion fan, I really don’t worry about the Bears so much. Now, if you guys could somehow figure out a way to get Rodgers away from Green Bay, you guys would be well on your way to another Super Bowl victory. Cutler… Read more »
