The Detroit Lions have a new head coach in former New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. However, he might not be the only Pat who could be calling Detroit home next season.

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Lions will likely make a push to acquire the services of Patriots running back Dion Lewis

The Lions have featured a pass-heavy attack for some time now behind quarterback Matthew Stafford. However, general manager Bob Quinn has made it clear that Detroit will try to find more balance in their offense moving forward. In order to do so, they will need to find a back capable of helping transform the run game.
