Source: Lions safety James Ihedigbo to skip offseason activities until he gets new deal

Detroit Lions veteran safety James Ihedigbo doesn't plan to report for offseason activities until he's given a new contract, according to a league source. Ihedigbo is due a $1.1 million base salary this year in the second year of a two-year, $3.15 million signed last year that included a $750,000 signing bonus. Ihedigbo, 31, informed the Lions of his intentions prior to being paid a $500,000 roster bonus on the third day of the new league year. Ihedigbo's stance is borne from his performance last season when he recorded a career-high three interceptions along with 71 tackles and two fumble recoveries. Plus, safety Isa Abdul-Quddus is behind Ihedigbo on the depth chart and is due $1.5 million this season.
