    We've talked recently about having a deep backfield and inevitable an injury occurs. We have talented players but KJ, Scarbrough have injury issues and Swift struggled with them at camp as well. Having a veteran, who played under Bevell in Minnesota, to fill in is a good thing. A power back to step in if/when Bo gets hurt or needs a breather. He's at best RB#3 on the team and should be used that way.

    Edit: Also having AP here who knows Bevell's scheme can help Swift become acclimated to the offense.

    I feel like you were asking this legitimately, you may honestly not know the quote

    Leroy Hoard (former Michigan star) said "if you need a yard, I'll get you three, if you need five yards, I'll get you three"

    We have several young backs and have Peterson will help mentor them. He maybe past his prime but he was having a really good camp.

    I had nightmares of AP torching the Lions defense. Now I'll have nightmares of him fumbling the ball and losing us games.

    All it does is help the younger guys. Veteran presence that also brings knowledge of Bevell's offense. I don't mind the signing.

    Interesting side note is that he's only 1,054 yards away from passing Barry on the all-time list. I highly doubt he passes him this year but it'll be interesting to see what the organization and fans say if he gets closer haha.

    We signed him to guarantee that he'd never pass Barry's record.

    Well then they should have signed Frank Gore before letting that old *** player pass him.

    The only concern I saw on twitter and I share (outside of the off the field awful behavior) is the usage. Are the Lions going to use him appropriately or is this going to be CJ Anderson/LeGarrette Blount 2.0?

    He'll be starter week 3 and take carries away from the young ones.
