OK, Mikel LeShoure is lost for the season. What now?
Jahvid Best is not built to carry 300+ times in a season. Maurice Morris is not built for a heavy workload. Aaron Brown is Jahvid Best light. Not the answer. UDFA Ian Johnson has looked good in camp but looks like an off-tackle dasher.
That means that the Lions need to sign a free agent running back or make a trade for one.
Let's take a look at who is available at the Rent-a-Back store for a one year rental.
Jerome Harrison looks like a leading candidate. Now, Harrison knows what to do with the rock but he's a liability without it. Harrison is a horrible blocker.
Laurence Maroney might be a nice fit, but has some health issues.
Anybody on the rental menu look good to you?
