Lions sign RB LeGarrette Blount and re-sign RB Zach Zenner

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions added depth in the backfield, signing LeGarrette Blount and re-signing Zach Zenner.

Detroit signed both players Friday to compete with Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick for carries this year.

Blount, an unrestricted free agent, ran for a team-high 766 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season last year in Philadelphia and scored three touchdowns during the Eagles' Super Bowl-winning run. He previously played for the New England Patriots, who used to employ Detroit general manager Bob Quin and coach Matt Patricia.
