Lions agree to 1-year deal with RB Kevin Smith

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have agreed to a one-year deal with running back Kevin Smith.

Smith posted a message on his Twitter account Tuesday after finding out he would be back in Detroit.

The Lions signed Smith last season while running back Jahvid Best was out with a concussion and after rookie Mikel Leshoure tore his left Achilles tendon. Smith ran for a career-high 140 yards and scored a career-high three touchdowns in a November win over Carolina, two weeks after he was without a job.

Detroit selected the Central Florida star in the third round of the 2008 draft and he ran for nearly 1,000 yards as a rookie. Injuries over the next two seasons prevented him from matching that production.
