Rosenhaus on Kevin Smith
Super agent Drew Rosenhaus sent out a tweet on Lions running back Kevin Smith earlier today. The update: "Kevin Smith played much of last season with an injured shoulder for the Lions. He is feeling healthy and expects to have a monster season."
Smith, who finished just shy of 1,000 yards last year, said he's dropped about six pounds this offseason and is looking forward to his role in the new offense.
"Speed kills," he said of his new look.
The Lions signed Maurice Morris to kick off free agency, and while Morris has looked good in camp so far, I still think Smith will get the bulk of the carries. People underestimate his blocking ability, and Smith said he wants to have a bigger impact as a pass catcher.
