    Marvin Jones out to finish what he started

    If you’ve been watching the OTA videos coming out of the Detroit Lions’ official site, you notice a familiar sight: A wide receiver with height and speed, vein-popped biceps and a blacked-out visor. His effortless motion, sure, strong hands and jersey number…oh. That’s “11,” not “81.” Marvin Jones is listed three inches shorter and 39 pounds lighter than Calvin Johnson’s 6-4, 235.

    Former Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata joining NFC North rival

    May 27 (UPI) -- The Detroit Lions added to its backfield Friday with the signing of Matt Asiata. Asiata, 29, played the first five seasons of his career for the Minnesota Vikings. The Utah product is a short-yardage specialist, likely competing with Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington to make the Lions' roster. The contract is for one year, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The Detroit News confirmed the signing. Asiata scored a career-high 10 touchdowns in 2014, while piling up 882 yards from scrimmage and filling in for Adrian Peterson. He had a tryout last weekend with the Lions, but remained unsigned. Asiata had 402 yards and six scores on 121 carries last season for the Vikings. Lions
