Here's a pretty remarkable stat for you.


The Detroit Lions have not had a single back rush for over 100 yards in a game since Thanksgiving 2013 when Reggie Bush went for 117 yards against the Green Bay Packers. That alone should tell you that any player on the Lions RB depth chart is not safe this offseason.


That includes third-year veteran out of Nebraska, Ameer Abdullah.

Abdullah had every opportunity to take complete control of the starting duties, but constant fumbles, benchings and being outplayed by Theo Riddick completely stunted his 2017 campaign. 


The fact that Detroit missed the playoffs after a hot start to the season behind a rushing offense that ranked dead last in the NFL in total yards on the ground was a pretty good indication changes would be made.


With Super Bowl champion LeGarrette Blount joining new head coach Matt Patricia and with a 2018 draft class that is rich in running back prospects, Abdullah's days in Detroit are likely numbered.
