Detroit Lions safety Isa Abdul-Quddus earned his first start of the season in Sunday's upset of the Green Bay Packers, and he acquitted himself well
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have re-signed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus to a one-year contract and linebacker Josh Bynes to a two-year deal. Abdul-Quddus joined the Lions as a free agent in 2014 and added depth to the secondary. He played in all 16 games last season, including ...
Abdul-Quddus served as the team's primary backup at both safety spots last season and was a key contributor on special teams.
Adbul-Quddus played approximately a third of the team's defensive snaps last week against the Jets. When he's on the field, he plays free safety, while Glover Quin moves to nickelback and covers the slot.
Detroit initially claimed Abdul-Quddus off waivers after New Orleans cut him Jan. 7. Special teams coach John Bonamego, who worked with Abdul-Quddus in New Orleans in 2011, made the pitch. Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, who spent the past seven season in New Orleans, also vouched for him.
Along with Wendling, defensive end Israel Idonije, kicker David Akers, linebacker Rocky McIntosh and offensive lineman Dylan Gandy will not return.
He started one game as an undrafted rookie (Fordham) in 2011, three in 2012 and none last season, but had 74 tackles, nine passes defensed and two interceptions in his limited role with the New Orleans Saints.
