The Detroit Lions could be in the market for running back help.

Ian Rapoport reported Friday the team hosted and worked out free agent running back Mike Gillislee, who played in four games with the Saints last year.

Gillislee, 28, has stints with the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots. He was released by the Patriots in 2018. 

The Lions could be looking for someone to join the backfield with Kerryon Johnson and Theo Riddick.
