Before former Titans' RB DeMarco Murray arrives in Detroit later today, former Panthers' RB Jonathan Stewart is scheduled to visit first today with the Lions, per source. Theo Riddick ran for 286 yards, and Tion Green piled up 165 yards (in 42 attempts). Last season, he rushed for 680 yards and six touchdowns. And the fact they are hosting both Murray and Stewart is proof. The Lions struggled to find consistency in the backfield last season, ranking last in the league with 1,221 rushing yards.

Stewart was released by the Panthers after 10 seasons with Carolina. He also posted 39 receptions for 266 yards and another touchdown. His 3.4 yards per carry was easily the lowest in his entire career. Now, a report has surfaced that the team has scheduled a meeting with another former Pro-Bowl running back: Jonathan Stewart.
