Newly-acquired Detroit Lions safety James Ihedigbo expects an aggressive approach for the defense under new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.
Austin was Ihedigbo's secondary coach with the Baltimore Ravens.
"Our defense, we dictate what offenses are doing," Ihedigbo told the Detroit News. "We don't let them dictate to us anything. We control the game, and that's our mind-set. When you go against us, you're going to be going against a hard-hitting, vicious, physical team on defense and on offense."
The Lions ranked 28th with 33 sacks and 23rd with 22 turnovers last season.
"We're going to be aggressive, there's no question about it," linebacker Stephen Tulloch said. "We're going to get after it — zone coverage, man, blitz; we're going to do it all. We're going to be able to mix things up."
