Latest NewsLions | Detroit adding Matt Asiata (Fri May 26, 08:13 PM) - Free-agent RB Matt Asiata (Vikings) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions Friday, May 26, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed. Our View: Asiata joins a Lions backfield to give them another power option behind Zach Zenner. Ameer Abdullah is likely the lead back, but he's not built to be a grinder in the NFL. That's where Zenner comes in...and oh yeah, Theo Riddick will still be a fine pass-catching option for the Lions in 2017. Asiata is no lock for the final roster.

Our View: Asiata is a TD hog, but if he can't stick with a team like the Lions then it will be tough for him to land elsewhere. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell insists they're happy with the current backs in place.
