Update: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is now reporting that the Lions haven’t reached an agreement with S Glover Quin just yet.
Hold off on Glover Quin’s agreement with Detroit. Another source said, Not so fast. Situations in free agency, as we see, can be fluid. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013

Schefter reported earlier in the day that the Lions wanted to hammer out contract with Glover, Reggie Bush, and Jason Jones and they’ve managed to accomplish this in a matter of a few hours.
They also re-signed CB Chris Houston as well. Detroit’s secondary was in desperate need of an upgrade and Quin should be a solid player for them moving forward. The Texans had him as one of their top priorities, so I’m sure this is very disappointing for them.
We have him listed as the No. 24 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
