Last week, I took a look at some possible offseason free-agent and draft replacements for the Detroit Lions, if they choose to cut ties with tight ends Brandon Pettigrew and/or Tony Scheffler, who are prone to drops and will be unrestricted free agents at season's end. However, the Lions seemingly have a secret weapon in undrafted free agent Joseph Fauria. Actually, he's not much of a secret after catching three touchdown passes against the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Nonetheless, how will his success affect how the Lions handle their TE corps in the offseason?
