Lions | James Bryant an offseason project

The Detroit Lions view FB James Bryant as an offseason project. The former CFL player, arena football leaguer and boxer don't use a traditional fullback in their offense. However, running backs coach Sam Gash convinced the team to bring him on board. General manager Martin Mayhew said Bryant will have to contribute in other areas, too, because the Lions only use a fullback maybe a dozen times per game. Mayhew added Bryant may have to contribute on special teams at a very high level or also be able to play tight end. "Whether James makes our team or not, it kind of remains to be seen. We like his skill level. We like his background and profile. Great guy when you meet him and talk to him," Mayhew said.
