Detroit News: James Ihedigbo A Veteran Leader As Lions Prepare For Month Off

Josh Katzenztein of the Detroit News has a story on the Detroit Lions as the prepare for a month off during the off-season. In the story, he mentions the leadership role UMass' James Ihedigbo has taken as a veteran member of the defense.

"Be smart, take care of your bodies, take care of your family and come back ready to win a championship," safety James Ihedigbo said. "The work doesn't stop because you leave. It only progresses, so that's what we're doing."  

The 30-year-old Ihedigbo has already assumed a leadership role with his new team after spending the past two years with the Baltimore Ravens. And even though he's one of the vocal leaders of the defense, he didn't feel much need to remind younger players how to behave during their break.
