DeMarco Murray: Visiting Lions


Theo Riddick ran for 286 yards, and Tion Green piled up 165 yards (in 42 attempts).

Detroit has been one of the worst rushing teams in recent history, finishing dead last in the National Football League past year with only 1,221 total rushing yards. That's just 76.3 yards per game on the ground, almost 10 yards less per contest than the next closest team. He missed one regular-season game and both of the Titans' postseason contests because of injury, and his 3.6 yards per carry matched a career worst.

Stewart is entering his 11th season in the NFL.

Murray, who just turned 30, is coming off a down season with the Tennessee Titans. He also posted 39 receptions for 266 yards and another touchdown. He scored six times on the ground.

He finished with 659 yards on 184 carries (3.6 ypc) and six scores.

According to Schefter, DeMarco Murray will arrive in Detroit later Monday and Jonathan Stewart's first visit is scheduled today as well. Regardless, the Lions must look to the draft to find their next star running back.
