Surprisingly, one of the most prolific backing was published in the NFL.
The Lions announced today that they have cut Theo Riddick. They have signed defender Mike Daniels and he will take over Riddick's roster.
It is unclear why the Lions prune Riddick, who is the only one running back in the NFL, with at least 300 receiving yards in each of the last five seasons.
Lions coach Matt Patricia, who made the announcement, declined to say why they cut Riddick, except to indicate that it's not concrete what Riddick did wrong.
He's done, "said Patricia.
The Lions have hinted that they want setbacks that run between the duels, and Riddick may not fit into their offensive this season. However, Riddick can contribute in the passing game and he will probably not be unemployed for a long time.
