NFL Rumors: Unsettled Detroit Lions Will Bring In Ryan Grant And Steve Slaton For Backfield Workouts

The Detroit Lions are about as unsettled in their backfield as any other team in the NFL today.

Miami Dolphins 4th-round draft pick Lamar Miller is fighting just to make the final 53-man roster. He’s currently listed as the 4th-string running back, behind Reggie Bush, Daniel Thomas and Steve Slaton.
