Detroit Lions: Glover Quin first on the field

ALLEN PARK — Glover Quin has this habit — a good habit — of being the first player on the football field for practice.
“I’ve been doing that since college, since 2004 now,’’ Quin said after Saturday’s training camp session. “I’m the type of guy I don’t like waiting around in the locker room, it’s time to go to practice what am I sitting in the locker room for? It’s not like practice is going to go away. So I’d rather come out here, get myself ready, get mentally prepared, get ready to go and try to have my best practice.’’
Quin, a safety who signed as a free agent on the same day as Reggie Bush, has not received the same publicity as Bush. If training camp is an indication, fans will welcome him to Detroit once they see he’s a quality safety that should beef up the secondary.
Chris Houston said when Quin gets out on the field early, it’s good for the younger players to notice.
“That (shows) he’s hungry,’’ Houston said. “No matter how long he’s been in the league, he’s hungry.’’
