Post Pollard signed?
from the grapevine, TE Marcus Pollard has signed with the Lions. Roughly a 3-year deal worth $6M.

Can anyone confirm this?

On Channel 2 News here in Detroit, they said "The Lions found themselves a tight end, details after this..."

I'll keep you updated :wink:

I'd like to see Alexander make this catch.

Last season in 13 games played Pollard had 29 catches for 309 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Stephen Alexander had 41 catches for 377 yards and 1 touchdown.

We just need to re-sign Fitzsimmons and maybe we'll be set. Or do you guys think we'd need to bring in a blocking specialist?

Don't need to worry about Fitzsimmons... he is under contract for 2005.

Fitzsimmons is listed as a restriced free agent.

According to this site he is a ERFA. (Is that right of first refusal FA. The site didn't have a key that I could find.)

An ERFA is someone who's deal has expired, but the club gives him a contract offer by the league-imposed deadline. If the club chooses not to give him an offer, then he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Hence my reasoning why he isn't a free agent... yet...

I dont see them picking up a blocking TE but it wouldnt hurt. Fitz doesnt block well enough to be the blocking TE. I say that they wont get one because they drafted 2 of them in Matt Murphy and John Owens and neither got much of a chance to play here.

I still say David Terrell over Bradford. He had a better year last year and also never ever had anyone even closely resembling Brett Farve throwing to him or a running game to take the pressure off of the recievers. You have to admit that Chicago has been a TOTAL QB joke the last however many years. I think this kid could still be good, is 6-3, fast, and has two injury free seasons. Given the right opportunity he will excel and goes along with our youth movement.

As much as I hate to say it, I agree. Terrell never really had the chance to excel...but then again he's never shown me that 110% effort from the stud receiver he supposedly was/is. It'd be a gamble.

It's no wonder the Colts could afford to lose Pollard to FA. They have 4 other TEs on the roster. None I really think are worth half a crap, but apparently Dungy thinks they're all good. Still, that's a lot of freakin' tight ends!!

"John Oehser, of Colts.com, reports all four of the Indianapolis Colts' tight ends?TE Dallas Clark, Ben Hartsock, Ben Utecht and Bryan Fletcher?are 26 or younger, and none have more than two years experience in the NFL. Nevertheless, head coach Tony Dungy believes the group is talented from top to bottom. "The players we have at that position?might be the best group of tight ends I've been around," Dungy said."
