Scaife expected to hit FA market

It’s looking more and more like Titans FA TE Bo Scaife is going to hit the free agent market come Feb. 27. Personally I like Scaife’s game. He’s a reliable receiver with some game breaking ability.

Scaife is very athletic, but has enough strength to be used on the line, though that is not necessarily his best attribute. But what the Bills need is another outlet that’s as reliable for Trent Edwards as Josh Reed.

I think Scaife can be that and he’s not going to blow up your budget. The highest paid tight end in football is Tony Gonzalez and he’s the only guy at TE in the league that made over $5M last year. I think you should be able to land Scaife for $3 to $3.5M per season, though with a thin TE market it’s possible he could be looking for more ($4M).

I don’t know if I’d want to go that high for him, but the guy led the Titans in receiving last season, has playoff experience and offers much coveted receiving prowess and athleticism. I hope he’s at least considered by the Bills because Buffalo needs to add experience to their receiving corps instead of more youth in my opinion.
