You may have heard reports saying that the Lions are interested in ex-Packer Ryan Grant. Grant will be visiting the Lions on Monday.

Grant has had injury problems in his past. But so has all active Detroit running backs. Javid Best (Concussions), Mikel Leshoure (Torn Achilles) and Kevin Smith (A bunch of injuries).

GRANT STATS:

I think that the Lions runningback crew right now should be just fine. This will be Leshoures first season, he was hurt all of last season. Last season was his rookie season, and he tore his achillies in training camp

 

IN MY MIND ”NO” THEY SHOULD NOT GET HIM.

    well….previous stats aren't exactly a prediction as to how he's going to compliment and mesh with his new teammates.

  2. Thanks for commenting Walter, you are correct in the fact that stats are not the only way to show a players success, but I think what Trevor is attempting to convey, is the amount of production that the other Lions running backs have achieved over the last few seasons. Also he stats above are showing a decrease in Grant's production.
