Projecting the Lions depth chart: Tight end

What will the Detroit Lions depth chart look like at tight end by the end of training camp? What is the top camp battle to watch at this position? Let's take a look. As the offseason winds down, we're going to project each position on the Detroit Lions depth chart and also take a look at some training camp battles. Next up is the tight end position. Starters: Eric Ebron, Brandon Pettigrew | Top backup: Joseph Fauria It's unclear right now just how often the Lions will play with two tight ends on the field at the same time. However, it seems like a pretty good bet that Eric Ebron and Brandon...

Detroit Lions — Three reasons Joe Fauria will still play role in offense

If ever a player was extra motivated, it’s tight end Joe Fauria who sat and watched as the Lions drafted tight end Eric Ebron in the first round. Immediately the Lions made a point that there will be room for Fauria in the offense too. Here are three reasons he will still play a role. 1. At 6-foot-7 and good hands, it’s like he was born to play in the red zone and catch touchdowns. Seven of his 18 receptions last season were scores. 2. Brandon Pettigrew disagrees with people who say Fauria can’t block. On the last day of minicamp Pettigrew said Fauria had developed all around....

Lions notes: Brandon Pettigrew, Joseph Fauria, more

Lions notes looks at Brandon Pettigrew, Joseph Fauria and much more. Brandon Pettigrew recently told the Free Press that the tight end role in the Detroit Lions' new offense is "definitely a little bit different." Pettigrew explained that the tight ends are "moving around a lot more, splitting out a little bit more, just doing a lot of different things and the role is different for everybody." This isn't a surprise considering he is one, but Joseph Fauria thinks tight ends are underpaid given how much the position has evolved over the years. Needless to say, he's on Jimmy Graham's...
