The Detroit Lions' running back carousel is one that may never cease to stop moving. It seems the team has an endless pocketful of nickels and loves going around in circles.
With Jahvid Best on the PUP list, Mikel Leshoure suspended and an injury risk, and Kevin Smith proving to be unreliable, rumors abound surrounding the Lions' desires.
CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora tweeted last week that Lions GM Martin Mayhew was actively working the phones looking for a trade.
The fact that no deal has been struck yet leads to two possible conclusions:
1. Mayhew is willing to let the current depth chart play itself out.
2. He is waiting until the season starts to pursue potential free agents.
Either way, after a week with no trades and a plethora of running backs on the bubble, this carousel is going to continue to spin.
