News came out over the weekend that the Lions would give a workout to free agent running back Steve Slaton. At that time I noted the he would likely have other running backs working out with him because the Lions like to bring in a number of players that play the same position. It turns out that is exactly what will happen.
Former Green Bay Packers running back will be in town for a workout with the Lions on Tuesday, the same day that Steve Slaton will be in town. The interest in taking a look at what Grant has left is not surprising since the Lions reportedly had talks with Grant during the offseason although nothing serious developed.
With Mikel Leshoure coming back from suspension the Lions may not actually be in the market for a free agent running back but this workout will give them a look at Grant and Slaton in case they find themselves needing a running back later in the season.
