Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Friday, June 22, that the key is finding creative ways to get the most of the fullback position. They did not have a fullback on the roster previously until signing FB James Bryant during the offseason. "(TE Will Heller) lined up in the backfield an awful lot for us last year," Schwartz said. "We've done that an awful lot. I think the whole key is having players that can do a lot of different things. The days of having a fullback that can only be a lead blocker are sort of gone. The fullbacks around now are more multi-dimensional players."
