Though free agency has essentially been underway for 48 hours, the real free agency period—you know, the one where teams can actually sign players—begins at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. We already know the Lions will be bringing back some of their own and have a few new linebackers coming their way, but Detroit isn’t finished by a longshot.
So while we’re just hours away from free agency beginning, here are five specific positions I’m looking for the Lions to add.
Veteran running back

As our own Mike Payton explained, they need a reliable force back there to complement a rookie running back the Lions are almost certain to add in the NFL Draft.
