Backup QB Dan Orlovsky expects Theo Riddick to serve in a Darren Sproles-like role for the Lions.
We're a bit loath to post about a No. 2 quarterback praising a No. 3 running back, but this isn't the first we've heard of a Sproles-type role for Riddick. "(Riddick), he wasn’t covered a single time in OTAs and minicamp," Orlovsky said. "And I think that it’s even going to be easier for him when he gets pads on because, once linebackers just try to start colliding him, and that’s what teams started to do with Sproles sometimes. ... You hit the home run once every 10 plays, and then 9 out of 10 times, Sproles wins. And that’s what I think Theo’s going to do for us." Riddick is unlikely to make a re-draft impact behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell, but is becoming a more-attractive target in Dynasty leagues. Jul 7 - 2:56 PM
