Detroit Lions Glover Quin, Travis Swanson honored by DSBA

Detroit Lions safety Glover Quin and offensive lineman Travis Swanson have been honored by the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association.

Quin won the media-friendly Good Guy Award while Swanson was named rookie of the year. The announcements were made on Friday.

In his second season with the Lions, Quin has 73 tackles in his 16 regular season starts. 

Quin spent considerable time each Wednesday during the season, talking to the media and answering every question with specificity and, at times, a good sense of humor.

Swanson, a second-round pick out of Arkansas, started four games at right guard in place of the injured Larry Warford. He also started the final regular season game at center for Dominic Raiola who was suspended.

Swanson is expected to replace Raiola at center for the 2015 season.

The previous five rookies of the year were Louis Delmas (2009), Ndamukong Suh (2010), Titus Young (2011), Ryan Broyles (2012) and Larry Warford (2013).

The last five Lions to be honored as Good Guys were Dominic Raiola (2009), Calvin Johnson (2010), Nate Burleson (2011), Stephen Tulloch (2012) and Rob Sims (2013).
