Lions to Host Former Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata

The Lions are set to host former Minnesota Vikings running back Matt Asiata, Nate Atkins of Mlive reports.

Asiata will take part in the team’s rookie minicamp this week, something veterans have an option of doing, ESPN’s Field Yates reported Tuesday on Twitter.

Asiata, who turns 30 in July, was mostly a goal-line specialist as part of the depth package behind Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. He scored six touchdowns on just 121 carries in six starts last season.
