The motor city could potentially be the next and maybe even the last stop for running back DeMarco Murray. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Murray and the Detroit Lions are scheduled to meet Monday.

Everyone knows the workload that Murray had when he was in Dallas and during his first year in Tennessee, so this comes as a shock that he’s getting a meeting this early. But with a top-heavy free agency, Murray’s name definitely jumps out over Doug Martin and others.

Also according to Schefter, the Lions will also host Jonathan Stewart on Monday as well.

Stewart, a different style of back than Murray, would likely be behind Murray on their list of potential signings.

As for the Lions the running back position is a major need. Last season the Lions leading rusher was Ameer Abdullah with 552 yards. Despite being in a down year, Murray still rushed for more yards as he finished with 659 yards rushing.
