James Ihedigbo shows up to Detroit Lions OTAs without new contract

Detroit’s James Ihedigbo is unhappy with his current contract situation, but Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports that the Lions safety has reported to Allen Park for organized team activities despite his qualms. He did not attend any voluntary workouts this offseason.

Ihedigbo is due $1.6 million for the 2015 season, and Meinke admits the defensive back’s play last season warrants a raise. In addition to intercepting four passes in 2014, Ihedigbo also forced three fumbles and recorded two sacks, showcasing a knack for making big plays.

The Lions haven’t yielded to Ihedigbo’s demands just yet, Meinke notes, but the team may engage in negotiations now that the rising safety is back on the field with his teammates.
