Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Texans' picks: 4/112 -- Glover Quin, CB, 5-11, 204, New Mexico...He is a three-year starter with good speed and jumping ability. The Texans don't intend to move him to safety. They like him outside and the fact that he can play nickel. That will be his first role with the team. He will also be looked on to add some speed to the special teams units. - by The Sports Xchange

03/13/13 - S Glover Quinn signed a five-year free agent contract on Wednesday with the Detroit Lions. Earlier in the day, the Lions signed free agent running back Reggie Bush.
The 27-year-old Quin started every game for the Houston Texans, who drafted him in 2009, in the last three seasons. He finished with 84 tackles, 14 passes defensed and two interceptions for the Texans in 2012. Quin is expected to take the starting spot of Louis Delmas, who the Lions are expected to lose in free agency.
01/02/13 - FS Glover Quin is second on the team with a career-high 105 tackles. In the base defense, he plays back.

He's a four-year starter -- the first two at cornerback -- and he's in the last year of his contract.
