I mean, don't you guys have enough RB's already?  If you guys want to give up on Kerryon, by all means send him our way.  Sadly, this is likely the replacement for either Abdullah, Riddick, or both.

 

Not really? Brown would be the #2 in Detroit.  No one is giving up on Kerryon, he's just more of a 10-15 carry/game guy than a 15+ carry/game guy.  Lions still need a backup to help shoulder the running load.  Most teams in the NFL have all least 2 running backs that get regular carries.

Abdullah was cut during the season last year and Riddick is still the 3rd down/pass catching back.

Pretty much what I thought. Question becomes then what would we offer? A 6th? We know how Les loves him a 6th round pick.

The Jets want to dump the guy. Why should we want him?

You ask that like we haven't traded for and been rewarded for taking people other teams wanted to get rid of in the past. I get it he's been a disappointment to them. Stranger things have happened though buying low of the scrap heaps.

I act like Darron Lee isn't Aqib Talib. What makes you want him?

Or Mark Barron, or Austin Blythe or John Sullivan or many others. Nothing in particular I simply asked a question about a player that was being shopped at a position that we could use unless Clay is going to play there and Littleton comes back. I don't particularly want this guy. Just floating it out there in our pretty dead sub.

You're not arguing my point. I didn't say, "The Rams shouldn't trade for or sign any players." I disagreed with the idea of acquiring a specific player. We let Barron go because he wasn't able to handle the physical nature of the position next to Littleton. Lee is even less physical than Barron. His selling points are his speed and coverage ability. I don't see where he solves any issues we have.

Matched the Lions offer for Malcolm Brown

Seems pretty logical for that  amount of money (and very small raise from the tender?)

I'm a little surprised. I expected us to go the cheaper route at HB.
