NFL Trade Deadline: Detroit Lions RB Mikel Leshoure Could Be On The Move


The NFL trade deadline is approaching quickly and although the NFL trade deadline isn’t nearly as exciting at the other major sports there are several team that  could make a move.

The Detroit Lions have an asset to move in Running Back Mikel Leshoure.  Leshoure has been inactive most weeks this season.  But the former second round pick still has value on the open market.

The Lions may be willing to move Mikel Leshoure for a draft pick or a wide receiver. It is seaid the Lions are evaluating the trade market for a player to bolster their wide receiver corps after the season ending injury to Ryan Broyles.

CBS NFL insider Jason LaCanfora wrote today that the Lions have been making calls trying to deal LeShoure but have no takers as of yet.

The Lions have been in contact with a wide swath of teams seeing if there is any market for him, and there are a few teams that could use a running back, but not many true contenders.

There are a few wide receivers on the market that could use a running back, most notably Cleveland who is looking to deal Greg Little.
