|The Lions have added another running back to their roster.
NFL Media reports that the team has reached an agreement with former Eagles running back Donnel Pumphrey to join their practice squad. Pumphrey worked out for the team after being released by the Eagles over the weekend.
Pumphrey got squeezed out of a crowded running back group in Philly and he’s entering a crowded one in Detroit as well. Former Eagles teammate LeGarrette Blount Brendan Leipsic Jersey Kids , rookie Kerryon Johnson, Theo Riddick and Ameer Abdullah all make it through cutdown day with the Lions.
Pumphrey was a fourth-round pick last season, but never played in the regular season or playoffs after tearing his hamstring in practice. Regular season time may be tough to come by again this year unless someone gets hurt Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , traded or cut from that quartet.
The Browns made a variety of moves at running back this offseason.
They signed Carlos Hyde as a free agent and drafted Nick Chubb in the second round before signing Duke Johnson to a three-year contract extension this month, which answered the question of their plans for Johnson beyond the end of his rookie deal. The biggest question facing them now is how they will divide the work in the backfield during the season.
Offensive coordinator Todd Haley said earlier this month that it has “yet to be determined” and running backs coach Freddie Kitchens suggested that the answer may be a shifting one. Kitchens said the team will ride the “hot hand” because it doesn’t make much sense to fiddle with something that’s working.
“Ultimately, all three of those guys can run our running game Brandon Scherff Jersey ,” Kitchens said, via the team’s website. 鈥淒uke can do a few more things in the passing game. Ultimately, we feel like that is a position of strength. Coach [Bill] Parcells taught me a long time ago http://www.officialpredators.com/authentic-adidas-ryan-hartman-jersey , do not turn a position of strength into a weakness. You would like to keep it a strength, and we are fortunate that is where we are.”
Johnson’s role in the passing game may mean that the Browns are picking between Hyde or Chubb on early downs. Hyde’s experience may get him the first crack at showing he can do the job, but Kitchens suggests he’ll need to make the most of it to keep Chubb from making his bid for a big role right out of the gate.
