Lions | Israel Idonije discusses role

Thu, 04 Jul 2013 07:30:20 -0700

Detroit Lions DE Israel Idonije said he was pitched on being a run-stopper on early downs. "I think the focus is first and second down, to be on the end," Idonije said. "Number one, just stop the run. In that the 4-3 style defense, stopping the run is the first focus. After that, whether it's inside on passing situations, or we're going to do something where I'm flexed outside in the (wide) nine to get after it from there."

Lions | Israel Idonije looking for revenge

Wed, 03 Jul 2013 19:08:10 -0700

Detroit Lions DE Israel Idonije said in an interview this week that one of his main incentives to play for Detroit was so he could stay in the NFC North Division and face the team he spent the past nine years with, the Chicago Bears. He said going against Bears QB Jay Cutler had nothing to do with it. "It's more about just the opportunity to go and play the team that I'd been with for so long. So it's not personally against one player," Idonije said. "But I'm looking forward to twice a year, dressing up, suiting up and getting after it on the field when we play the Bears in Detroit and then in Chicago."
