Mike James seems likely to be cut
The Lions brought in three running backs, including David Cobb, for workouts despite having seven currently on the roster. Mike James, the lowest player on the depth chart, has been scarcely seen throughout the offseason.
Mike James is a non-factor in 100% of leagues, but the team's behavior bears monitoring. It's unusual for an organization with so much depth at one position to continue seeking out players, even if it's merely due diligence at this point. One could speculate based on this news that the club is still skeptical about the injury status of its top-end players, namely Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. All indications currently point to the contrary; both players seem to be on track for full recoveries, and to suggest otherwise would be entirely preemptive.
