Found August 07, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
Chaz Schilens has struggled to latch on to a team in the NFL since being selected in the 7th-round of the 2008 Draft. He signed with the Lions just prior to training camp, and he has a very small chance of making their active roster. Regardless, while teammate Calvin Johnson is the greatest player on the team, Schilens has the most amazing tattoo on the team, and quite possibly the league. This tiger on his back is beautiful artwork that supposedly took 24 total hours to complete: Tip of the cap to Schilens reaching out to Detroit and embracing the best team in the city (who actually drafted him 10 years ago), but it probably won’t be enough to make the final cut with the Lions.

Detroit Lions WR Chaz Schilens got a massive tiger tattoo on his back

Detroit Lions wide receiver Chaz Schilens recently got a massive tattoo on his back, and the only things missing are Mowgli and Baloo.

Camp notes: Johnson never stops leading by example

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom, nicknamed The Perfect Human Being, always worked and prepared harder than anyone else. He seemingly never made mistakes and was admired for the way he lived his life off the ice, too. Sound familiar, Lions fans? Receiver Calvin Johnson is theNFL's version of theperfect human being. He set the record for most receiving...

Former Jets WR Chaz Schilens Bashes Mark Sanchez

There is never a dull day when it comes to the NY Jets. No one can really figure out which direction the team is heading in, and it seems as though a new player or former player comes out every day with nothing nice to say. USA Today is reporting that former WR Chaz Schilens has joined that Mark Sanchez bashing club. When asked about his one season with the Jets, Schilens had this...

Johnson vs. Cromartie an exhibition highlight

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer Even in the preseason, Calvin Johnson is a marked man. It's hard to say how much the Detroit wide receiver will play in Friday night's exhibition game against the New York Jets. But when he's lined up, fans should enjoy at least a brief glimpse of a one-on-one matchup between Johnson...

Herman Moore catches a touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford

Herman Moore was my favorite wide receiver growing up. Calvin Johnson gets the nod for all-time favorite wide receiver nowadays, but Moore will always have a special place in my heart. That's why it was especially neat to see him catch a touchdown pass from my favorite Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford during training camp this past week.  See for yourself:  Moore...

Ex-Jets wideout criticizes Sanchez

It's not getting any easier for Mark Sanchez. Former Jets wide receiver Chaz Schilens didn't mince words when it came to his ex-quarterback. "Really, when it came down to it, I kind of felt like they were looking for scapegoats and besides everyone except for, you know, maybe the quarterback position, and it was what it was," Schilens told USA Today on Wednesday...
