New Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is expected to install his version of the New Orleans Saints offense, which uses multiple running backs, often as pass-catchers out of the backfield. To wit, since Sean Payton took over as Saints head coach, no team has come close to targeting their running backs with passes as often as the Saints. During that stretch, the Saints have targeted their running backs 1,389 times -- the Washington Redskins are next with 1,068 RB targets.
