Lions Reportedly 'In Talks' With Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith of the Detroit Lions looks for running room after getting past the defense of the Carolina Panthers.

Over the last few days, the Detroit Lions have been quite active when it comes to re-signing their own free agents. Quarterback Shaun Hill, offensive tackle Jeff Backus, defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, linebacker Stephen Tulloch, linebacker Ashlee Palmer and safety Erik Coleman have all been brought back. Also, Calvin Johnson received a new eight-year deal.

Now it appears that the Lions may be turning their focus to re-signing running back Kevin Smith. From Anwar Richardson:

After re-signing several players since free agency began, the Lions are currently in talks to bring back running back Kevin Smith, according to sources. How much Smith seeking is currently unavailable.

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said at the NFL Combine that the team has interest in re-signing Smith, and Smith definitely has interest in returning. While questions about if he can stay healthy will always exist, bringing him back seems to be the right move. If he can stay healthy, he provides another weapon for the Lions in the backfield. If he can't, then the Lions will hope that guys like Jahvid Best and Mikel Leshoure are indeed healthy and can shoulder the load.
