Lions Re-Signing RB Zach Zenner


According to Dave Birkett, the Detroit Lions will re-sign RB Zach Zenner to a one-year extension. 

This comes shortly after the news that the Minnesota Vikings were interested in Zenner.  

Zenner, 27, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of South Dakota State back in 2015. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.58 million contract but the Lions declined to tender him an offer as a restricted free agent and tested the market last year. 

Detroit re-signed Zenner, but was placed on injured reserve coming out of the preseason with a back injury. The Lions would later waive him with an injury settlement only to re-sign him in November. 

In 2018, Zenner appeared in eight games for the Lions and rushed for 265 yards on 55 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 56 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.
