Best Detroit Lions Players

Wopwop

The Top Ten

1 Barry Sanders Barry Sanders Barry Sanders is a former American football running back who spent his entire professional career with the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

The only true superstar on a mediocre team, he would have retired with the rushing yards record if he didn't retire before the 99 season.

Played on weak teams for most all of his professional career. His achievements were nothing short of remarkable.

Even if emit smith did beet his record I still think Barry's the best

He's a beast
