Lions look at a trio of running backs, and plenty of other players


With the Lions playing on Monday night, they bumped until Wednesday their semi-usual Tryout Tuesday. And on Wednesday they tried out a lot of players.

Per a league source, three running backs got their tires kicked in Detroit: Bryce Brown (pictured), Travaris Cadet, and Daniel Thomas.

Also getting workouts were tight end Cameron Clear, nose tackle Kenrick Ellis, nose tackle Ishaa’ily Kitchen, defensive tackle Joe Vellano, and defensive end Jerel Worthy.

Defensive tackle Andre Fluellen also got a tryout — and a job. He took defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker’s roster spot; Walker landed on IR after breaking a leg against the Seahawks.

  1. So what I’m taking from that list is that they’re really, really not happy with their current DTs. Which is odd since it seems like the OL is a much bigger issue.

  2. Just like the Lions…cure the symptom (RBs), not the illness (OL)

    Did they try out any coaches?!?!

  3. I assume the RB tryout had to due with Joique Bell not being healthy, but I think a trio of AA, ZZ and Theo can get it done, assuming the Oline could block anybody. There’s got to be a RT out there we can add, as well as an offensive coordinator.

  4. It isn’t the Rb’s fault the lineman can’t block, or the offensive coordinator ditches the run early….

    It seems to me that Lombardi hasn’t made adjustments to what the defense is showing.

  5. The Bills let Fred Jackson go, and now they need RBs?
    Lets see if their view was justified at the end of the season.
