Joseph Fauria: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Though he's been quiet through two preseason games, Fauria is having a good training camp, the Lions' official website reports.

Fauria is expected to have a bigger role in the Detroit offense in 2014, after catching 18 passes for 207 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie, the Lions' official website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

New Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, who worked with the Saints' Jimmy Graham during Graham's first four seasons in the league, said that he brought the Saints' playbook with him to Detroit. That, along with Brandon Pettigrew's impending free agency, leaves Fauria with a nice opportunity to earn an expanded role. The Lions probably won't hold on to the perpetually disappointing Pettigrew, and Fauria's basketball background and size (6-foot-7, 255 pounds) make him comparable to Graham in at least one way. Depending on how things shake out this offseason, the 2013 touchdown specialist could head into training camp as the favorite to start at tight end in his second NFL season.
Fauria finished the season with 18 catches and seven touchdowns this season.
