James Ihedigbo: Lions “Definitely Have Championship DNA”
James Ihedigbo is used to being with a winning organization after spending several seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. The hard-hitting safety signed with the Lions in the offseason and he believes this Lions teams “definitely has a championship DNA.”
“It’s one of those things, you can feel it,” Ihedigbo said, according to mlive.com. “With this team, I can feel the makings of a championship-DNA team. Are we willing to sacrifice? That’s the question, and I know we are. There are guys in this locker room that are willing to pay the price, whatever it is, to put the work in to be a champion. Yeah, we definitely have that championship DNA.”
Ihedigbo played a key role in the Ravens Super Bowl run two seasons ago, and he believes the Lions have undergone a culture change.
“It’s one of those things you can’t really explain it, you can’t really talk about it because people just won’t understand it,” Ihedigbo said of the culture change that makes a champion. “You just have to watch and see, and when it unfolds, it’s going to be a special season.”
