Lions | Looking to add a RB

Thu, 10 Jan 2013 06:37:09 -0800

The Detroit Lions had just four runs of 20-plus yards this season, tied for fewest in the NFL. RB Jahvid Best (concussion) would have helped in that area, but he could not get activated due to a concussion. As a result, general manager Martin Mayhew said the team will look for a running back with speed and big-play ability. "We need that shifty back that can come in and be a change-of-pace guy and catch passes out of the backfield," Mayhew said. "A guy that can run routes and get one-on-one and beat a linebacker. That's what Jahvid gave us, a guy with some juice and some elusiveness."
