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.
