Brandon Pettigrew fine with blocking more
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew is ceding his spot as the top pass-catching tight end to rookie Eric Ebron, notes the Detroit Free Press. Pettigrew is O.K. with blocking more.

"Whatever it is, I’m a team guy," he said. "You know that. Everybody here has the same goal. We’re trying to win."

Pettigrew signed a four-year, $16 million contract this offseason despite the fact that his receptions and yards have dropped three straight years.

Brandon Pettigrew expecting more catches in 2014
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew anticipates more passes thrown his way. He had 41 catches last season, a big drop from the 71 and 83 receptions he made in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

“I think these guys kind of want to open up the game a little bit more,” Pettigrew told the team's website after re-signing with Detroit for $16 million over four years. “Spread the ball out a little bit more and try to get the tight ends the ball.

“Knowing what (Lombardi) is coming from (New Orleans), the expectation is that balls will be coming my way a little bit more. It sounds fun. It sounds exciting.“

Pettigrew, however, will continue to do a lot of blocking in the running game.
