The Lions seem destined to draft a running back this year, but if they wanted to add a veteran that could help continue the easy transition of the offense, Thomas could be that guy, considering he was immersed in Joe Lombardi’s system in New Orleans. Thomas is an excellent receiver out of the backfield, and doesn’t have nearly as many miles on his tires as many running backs do at age 30 considering the balanced system he came from. For the Lions, signing Thomas might make plenty of sense.
