Lions go old school, keep fullback Jed Collins

Good old-fashioned football is back in Detroit. Well, sort of. It's still going to be Stafford-to-Megatron as often as possible, but the Lions do have a traditional fullback on their 53-man roster for the first time since 2010. Jed Collins, a 5-foot-10, 252-pound bulldozer, is part of a dying breed in the NFL. Sure, he can take advantage of defenses napping by catching a pass...

Saints sign Fullback Erik Lorig, does this mean the end for Jed Collins?

Being the team with the least amount of cap room in the entire league currently isn't stopping the Saints from making moves. Indeed, the team has signed Erik Lorig to a four year contract. Lorig has been part of the Bucs as a starter and lead blocker for the last four seasons. The move would seem to indicate the Saints are moving on from Jed Collins, but I wouldn't rule out...

New Orleans Saints hosted fullback Erik Lorig

There’s one thing I love about sports, and that happens to be the free agency period. Division rivals pick up guys who have competed against them for at least two games a year for a couple of years, allowing them to seek revenge on the team who let them go in the first place. Now the New Orleans Saints are currently looking to pick up a fullback considering they don’t have a...

The fullback position is used by the Saints infrequently, but still carries some value. Jed Collins has been an underrated part of the offense, providing great lead blocking and 14 receptions (2 touchdowns) as a safety...
