The former Detroit Lions and Houston Texans safety announced his plans Tuesday on Instagram .
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released Glover Quin, cutting ties with the 33-year-old safety who had one year left on his contract .
Detroit also released wide receiver Bruce Ellington and linebacker Nicholas Grigsby on Friday.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — No, Glover Quin isn't worrying about Detroit's draft position for next season.
The Lions are 5-8 and in last place in the NFC North, but last weekend, they went on the road and beat Arizona .
Next up is a trip to Buffalo for another winnable game, so talk radio has been ablaze with chatter about whether more victories are even desirable at this point.
CHICAGO (AP) — Glover Quin had a chance to stop Anthony Miller. He ended up on the ground on the sideline, watching as Miller sped toward the end zone.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Falcons receiver Julio Jones was limited for the second straight day of practice with a sore back.
The two-time All-Pro was injured on the last offensive snap of last week's 30-26 victory at Detroit when Lions safety Glover Quin made a clean tackle.
He told the team's medical staff that he was fine after the play.
"I wasn't trying to make it bigger than what it was," Jones said Thursday. "It wasn't anything that we need to be concerned about."
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Long before their chances were finally extinguished by a replay review in the final seconds, the Detroit Lions trailed Atlanta by double digits and were in danger of falling behind by more.
Then Detroit safety Glover Quin intercepted a pass and ran it back for a touchdown.
It was that kind of day for the Lions, who took the defending NFC champions down to the wire last weekend, but struggled to stop the Falcons for most of the game.
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — If you ask the Atlanta Falcons, Matt Ryan is still playing like an MVP.
Just overlook last week's three interceptions.
Ryan's streak of nine straight games without an interception, including the postseason, ended last week at Detroit with his most picks since late in the 2015 season.
But look again. Ryan really didn't deserve the ugly stat line.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday only one of the three picks was Ryan's fault, but it was costly.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis was on the practice field Wednesday for the Detroit Lions after missing their loss to Atlanta last weekend because of a concussion.
The Lions listed Davis, their first-round draft pick, as limited in practice. Also limited Wednesday were safety Glover Quin, cornerback Jamal Agnew, wide receiver Kenny Golladay, center Travis Swanson, safety Tavon Wilson and defensive end Anthony Zettel.
DETROIT (AP) — David Johnson had a lot of eyes — and bodies — on him every time he touched the ball against the Detroit Lions.
Coming off a spectacular season, Arizona's star running back was stunted and knocked out of the game with a wrist injury in a 35-23 loss Sunday.
Johnson led the league with 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns last year. In the season-opening game, he lost a fumble and was limited to 23 yards rushing on 11 carries, and had six receptions for 68 yards.
ALLEN PARK, Michigan (AP) — There's nothing like a matchup with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to provide a little more clarity during the preseason.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — There's nothing like a matchup with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to provide a little more clarity during the preseason.
For the Detroit Lions, it was a bit of a reality check.
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."
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions need a win and a Green Bay loss to secure a rare postseason appearance.
"We control our destiny," Lions safety Glover Quin said.
While that is a fact, it will be difficult for Detroit to win either of its last two games.
The NFC-North leading Lions (9-5) close the regular season next Monday night at the NFC-leading Dallas Cowboys (12-2), then are home against the Green Bay Packers (8-6).
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Detroit safety Glover Quin recognized a deep route by Brandin Cooks just in time to make a diving breakup of a long pass down the middle of the field.
A few plays later, Quin intercepted Brees along the sideline.
"Obviously Drew Brees is a great player with great talent around him; we knew it was going to be a challenge, so we locked in — all week," Quin said.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A group of NFL players is on Capitol Hill to discuss ways to improve relations between police and the communities that they serve.

DETROIT (AP) — After a bye week, Carson Wentz and the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles look to keep up their fast start against the struggling Detroit Lions.
Philadelphia (3-0) has one of the NFL's top-ranked defenses and rookie quarterback Wentz is playing mistake-free football.
"We've just got to keep him grounded," rookie coach Doug Pederson said.
The Eagles are relatively healthy, too, coming off a bye.
