Free agent to be Glover Quin wants to stay with Texans

Posted Jan 15, 2013

Safety Glover Quin, who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, said he would "love" to remain with the Texans and is optimistic it can get done.

Texans S Glover Quin

Free safety Glover Quin is one of the headliners among Texans players who will be unrestricted free agents this offseason.

Quin is taking a wait-and-see approach to his first foray into free agency, but he wants to stay in Houston.

“Definitely, I would love to be here,” Quin said Monday morning as the Texans cleaned out their lockers at Reliant Stadium. “I love this organization, I love the city, I love the fans, I love this team. Would love to be here. Hope everything works out to where I can be here, but we’ll just have to see…

“I’m pretty optimistic. I feel like it could get done. I don’t see why it couldn’t get done.”

A fourth-round draft pick out of New Mexico in 2009, Quin led the Texans with 85 tackles this season. He had 14 passes defensed and two interceptions. He has started 60 of 64 games in four seasons, moving from cornerback to safety in 2011 after the Texans hired Wade Phillips as defensive coordinator. A quiet leader in the secondary, Quin has 247 tackles over the last three seasons, more than any other Texans player.

“I’d love to get him back,” strong safety Danieal Manning said Monday. “I’m not the GM or anything like that, but I think they’re going to do a good job of keeping him here.”

Said Pro Bowl cornerback Johnathan Joseph, asked about what Quin brings to the defense:  “Just true leadership. He’s a natural-born leader. Works hard each and every day on and off the field, great guy in the community. It’s hard to place a value on a guy like that because he does so much and means so much to the team.”

Others Texans players who will be unrestricted free agents, making them free to sign with any team, include outside linebacker Connor Barwin, fullback James Casey, cornerback Brice McCain, nose tackle Shaun Cody, inside linebackers Bradie James and Tim Dobbins, cornerback Alan Ball, running back Justin Forsett, kicker Shayne Graham and punter Donnie Jones.

Free agency begins on March 12, the first day of the new League Year.
