RBs Murray, Stewart to visit Lions


In addition to ex-Titans Pro-Bowler DeMarco Murray, Detroit is hosting former-Panthers Pro Bowler Jonathan Stewart for a visit on Monday, per ESPN.

It's no secret that the Lions have struggled mightily at the running back position for the last handful of years. The Tennessee Titans released him earlier this month after two seasons with the team. However, he's only one year removed from a much more robust season where he finished with 1,287 yards and the ground, 377 yards receiving and a dozen total TDs.

The three-time pro bowler has more than 7,000 rushing yards and almost 50 touchdowns in his seven year National Football League career.

If Detroit chooses to pass on both Stewart and Murray, there are other choices on the free agent market. The veteran back recorded 659 yards and six touchdowns on 184 carries in 2017.
