The biggest surprise of Detroit's offseason has been all the Theo Riddick talk. Very few, if any, were ruminating on last year's sixth-round pick prior to the first OTA.
But here we are. And the praise isn't just from the media, but from middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch.
However, it's possible that the narrative might change soon. As of the close of business on the inaugural day of the 2014 season, Mikel Leshoure was the one taking the snaps with the first and second offensive teams.
Riddick was relegated to a spot a little further down the trough.
Stop me if you've read this before, but there's still time for Riddick to carve out his role. In fact, considering the Saints found a way to get four running backs at least 50 carries last season, it's entirely possible that both guys will have an impact.
