Lions | Drummond likes his chances under Martz

Steve Pate, of The Macomb Daily, reports Detroit Lions WR Eddie Drummond likes his chances of producing as a wide receiver under offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Under previous coaches, Drummond was used as a kick returner with almost no value on offense. Martz has likened Drummond to free agent WR Az-Zahir Hakim, who had his best seasons under Martz with the St. Louis Rams. Drummond said, "This is what I've been waiting for, for somebody like Martz to come in and be comfortable with players like me on the field. I've watched a lot of film on (St. Louis') 'The Greatest Show on Turf,' and I feel like I can fit in tremendously, and right away. I just have to learn the system. It's a complicated system. We're a long ways from getting everything down, but we are making progress. I love it. Any other offense for a player like me wouldn't be as clear and as close to what I can contribute."
