The Detroit Lions are already getting busy shaping their 2014 roster.
The team has claimed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus off waivers from the New Orleans Saints. He still has to pass a physical in Allen Park.
Abdul-Quddus was waived on Jan. 7, but the claim process in the NFL didn’t start until this week following the Super Bowl.
Abdul-Quddus spent the past three seasons as a backup safety and special teams player for New Orleans. He’s started four games since joining the Saints in 2011 as an undrafted free agent out of Fordham.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound free safety started three games in 2012, and has 74 career tackles, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and nine passes defended in 42 career games.
