Tennessee Tenders Scaife

The Tennessee Titans want to make sure their starting tight end doesn't hit the free agent market. They made a move to help ensure he stays a Titans for the 2008 season.

The Tennessee Titans have placed a second-round tender on starting TE Bo Scaife, a league source told Scout.com.

While the move may have come to a surprise to some, it's believed the team used a higher restricted free tender than expected to dissuade other teams from signing him to an offer sheet.

The former sixth-round pick in the 2005 draft is coming off a career-high in catches (46) during the 2007 season.

Tennessee has also shown interest in free agent TE Alge Crumpler in recent days. The team is expected to pass on re-signing backup TE Ben Troupe who only posted 18 catches over the past two seasons.
