LeGarrette Blount remains a free agent. The Detroit Lions need a power running back.

Sounds like a ideal match for the running back and the Lions. Detroit News sportswriter Bob Wojnowski says the Lions should sign Blount.

“Lions should sign him, for obvious reasons. He’s large, he’s productive, he might be reasonably priced, and oh, he scores touchdowns.”

Blount, 30, is coming off a career season in which he rushed for a career-high 1,161 yards and a league-leading 18 touchdowns with the New England Patriots in 2016. Blount wanted to return to the Patriots and the Patriots wanted him to return, but the opportunity has disappeared after they couldn’t agree on a contract and the Patriots opted to sign free agent running backs Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead.

The Lions have Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick at the position, but neither play is a power back in the mold of Blount. Blount is a two-down back who could be used in early downs and short-yardage situations.

The Lions didn’t draft a running back during last week’s NFL draft, and Blount is available.

GIANTS: Brandon Marshall has yet to play one game for the New York Giants, but he has already decided that his last game will be for them.

On stage at Saturday’s Health & Fitness Expo at MetLife Stadium, the 33-year-old wide receiver said he plans to play out the two-year contract he signed with the team this offseason and then retire.

“I’m going to play two more years,” he told the crowd. “That’s the first time I’ve said that. Two more years and I’m gone.”

Marshall said his post-football life will be dedicated to issues regarding mental health. Marshall was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in 2011.

That hasn’t stopped him from having a distinguished career thus far, including the last two seasons with the Jets in which he averaged 84 catches and 1,145 yards. The one thing that has eluded him, though, has been a playoff appearance and Marshall made it clear when he signed with the Giants that he planned to rectify that.

One of the reasons Marshall is optimistic that can happen is the quarterback he is now working with. While much of the focus in the past week has been gathered on Eli Manning’s potential replacement, Marshall is impressed by the quarterback’s present.

“This guy is just phenomenal,” Marshall said of working with Manning during the Giants’ offseason program. “The way he brings guys together, he galvanized the group. I’m fortunate to be able to go out with a quarterback like Eli.”
