Quin signs contract extension with Lions through 2019

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have signed safety Glover Quin to a contract extension through the 2019 season.

The 31-year-old Quin has spent the past four seasons with Detroit since signing a five-year deal in 2013. He hasn't missed a regular-season start since 2009, when he was with Houston.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn calls Quin one of Detroit's team leaders and says he's ''been a consummate professional on and off the field.''

Quin's 116 consecutive regular-season starts are the most among active NFL safeties.

The Lions announced the deal Sunday but did not disclose contract terms.
