Lions Work Out Free-Agent RB Rock Cartwright
The Detroit Lions worked out a number of players on Tuesday, including former Redskins and Raiders running back Rock Cartwright.
He tweeted, "Just finished my workout with the Detroit Lions.. 1st time running a 40 in 10 years.. Lol.. Nothing yet.. Still waiting by the phone.."
A versatile role player, the 5-foot-7, 223-pound Cartwright has served as an undersized lead blocker and short-yardage back, averaging 4.2 yards per carry during his career. He's also a capable receiver out of the backfield, hauling in 64 receptions for 589 yards and two touchdowns.
Cartwright, a 10-year veteran, is also a proven special teams contributor. As a return man, he's averaged 23.6 yards on 231 kickoffs, including a 100-yard touchdown in 2006 and on coverage units, he's racked up 96 total tackles.
