Scaife reports for off-season work, signs franchise tender

Monday, April 27, 2009 at 1:02pm

Franchised tight end Bo Scaife reported to the Tennessee Titans practice facility Monday, ending his time away from the off-season program.

Scaife, who was tendered at $4.46 million in February, signed the tender offer on Monday.

Scaife’s agent Kevin Robinson said he is still hopeful something can be worked out with the Titans long-term, even though the tight end position has become a crowded one with the drafting of Jared Cook of South Carolina in the third round over the weekend.

“To be honest with you, he decided to report and sign his tender in the hopes that something could be worked out long-term,” Robinson said of Scaife. “He is the consummate team guy, and he wanted to work out with teammates and show his commitment to them.”

With the drafting of Cook, the Titans now have five tight ends on the roster, with Alge Crumpler, Craig Stevens and Casey Cramer in addition to Scaife and the rookie Cook.

Over the weekend, the Titans listened to trade offers for Scaife, according to Robinson, but those discussions did not materialize. Robinson declined to name the teams potentially interested in dealing for Scaife. One website had details of a trade of Scaife to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, but that deal turned out to be incorrect.

“There were some teams that called the Titans and were interested in trading for Bo,” Robinson said.

Sounds like Scaife was getting a bit nervous by all of the media buzz for Cook, and rightfully so. That kid is bigger and faster than him. Seems to me Bo and Alge better get ready for some real competition, unlike what they've gotten thus far from Stevens.

Good for Scaife. The Titans now need to sign him to a long-term deal. Read more at

Scaife doesn't need to worry a bit about his roster spot. Alge on the other hand is a different story. He was doo doo last year. I think we should absolutely sign Scaife to a long-term deal. Hopefully the Scaife/Cook duo will be a productive one for years to come.
