The Detroit Lions’ philosophy is leave no stone unturned when it comes to player personnel and they showed it again Thursday, signing Carlin Isles to the practice squad.
Isles is a rugby player and track star. According to reports, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.22 seconds during his workout with the Lions Monday.
“He’s got great speed,” coach Jim Schwartz said Wednesday. “That’s probably the biggest thing. He’s a legit track guy. His background happened to be rugby, but it’s probably more track.”
Isles is called “the fastest rugby player in the world.”
Isles only football background was as a kick returner for Division III Ashland University in 2012.
