Detroit looking for RB help.
After totally ignoring the running back position last season, the Lions front office is expected to heavily invest in their offensive backfield this year.
The Lions ranked as or among the worst rushing teams in football last season. Murray could be a good fit for them. Probably not. At least not alone.
Last season, he finished with 680 rushing yards on 198 carries with six touchdowns. Stewart does the majority of his damage strictly as a runner, as he only caught eight passes for 52 yards last season.
The three-time pro bowler has more than 7,000 rushing yards and almost 50 touchdowns in his seven year National Football League career. His 3.4 yards per carry was easily the lowest in his entire career. Turning 31-years old next week, the veteran back posted similar numbers to Murray in 2017. He scored six times on the ground. Now, a report has surfaced that the team has scheduled a meeting with another former Pro-Bowl running back: Jonathan Stewart. Regardless, the Lions must look to the draft to find their next star running back.
