The Detroit Lions have decided to part ways with tight end Tony Scheffler after four seasons.
Scheffler, 30, accumulated over 1,300 yards while with the team. His best year came in 2011 when he caught six touchdown passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford. In all, he had eight touchdowns and 120 reception. His sure hands provided a constant outlet for Stafford and he had a knack...
During my little hiatus, the Titans made one roster move of note I have not yet commented on, signing veteran right tackle Barry Richardson last week. Richardson played and started all 16 games for the Rams at right tackle. He joined the Rams after beginning his career with the Chiefs, who selected him out of Clemson in the sixth round in 2008.
