Time to start Poaching Practice Squad RBs?



We have all heard the recent news on the Lions RB position.  And everyone has been throwing names around on which FA  RB we should sign.  I'm not a fan of Aaron Brown, or Tiki, or Portis.... ect ect ect.

I think our best option might be to pick up a RB from some other team that is deep in the position, and just might have a gem sitting around on their Practice Squad.  Profiler brought up Joique Bell from Wayne State earlier.  I agree with him, that I think he could be serviceable in our system.

All this got me thinking and I decided to check out the Practice Squads from the other 31 team.  Here is a link to the most updated PS Rosters that I could find.

After looking all this over, I also think John Clay from the Steeler's PS and UofWisc Madison, could help.  6'1"  230# and a 4.7 Forty.  He had 1,000 yrd plus years his last two in college.

Or if you want someone a little smaller and faster, how bout Evan Royster, 6'1"   210#  All-Time leading rusher at Penn St.  And a 6th round pick of the Washington Redskins.

What do you guys think of these 3 guys and do you think they could help with depth for the rest of the season.  I know that they aren't gonna be able to step in right away.  But we got 10+ games to go and we need help at the RB spot.  Also if you see anyone else that intrests you on the list above, feel free to mention it.

Go Lions!!!!
