HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – After four seasons with the Texans, safety Glover Quin met with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday and has agreed to a five-year deal with them,  according to a Tweet by the team.

Quin was a play maker in 2012 and finished the season with 64 solo tackles, a sack, 14 passes defensed and two interceptions.

Moving from cornerback to safety when Wade Phillips joined the Texans as defensive coordinator, Quin excelled on the field and emerged as one of the leaders of the defense and the secondary along with veteran safety Danieal Manning.

The fourth-round pick out of New Mexico started in every Texans game during the last three seasons after starting in 12 as a rookie.

The Lions have been busy today and also snagged cornerback Chris Houston and running back Reggie Bush.

Quin, outside linebacker Connor Barwin, fullback/tight end James Casey, nickel corner Brice McCain and offensive tackle Ryan Harris are players the Texans have made an effort to sign, but so far, only Casey is gone. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, who are also courting Barwin, according to CBSSports.com.
