Top Tom Savage News

  • Tom Savage: Cut by Lions

    Savage was released by the Lions on Saturday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Savage's release comes as a bit of a surprise, with Detroit ultimately choosing Josh Johnson as the backup quarterback. Savage may see some interest from other teams after he showed an ability to step in and start for the Texans last year.

  • Lions' Tom Savage: Returns for preseason finale

    Savage completed five of nine passes for 157 yards during Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Savage evidently cleared concussion protocol sometime within the past couple of weeks and ultimately got the starting nod for Thursday's finale, only to get sacked on Detroit's first offensive snap. It seems he's still considered the No. 2 quarterback behind Matthew Stafford despite the missed time.

  • Lions' Tom Savage: Enters concussion protocol

    Head coach Matt Patricia confirmed Saturday that Savage is in concussion protocol, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    This is presumably the result of one of the sacks Savage took in Thursday's preseason opener. Now dealing with his third concussion in four years, there's no telling how long it could take the quarterback to clear protocol. Detroit signed Josh Johnson earlier Saturday to replenish depth at the position.

  • Lions' Tom Savage: Possible concussion in preseason opener

    Savage completed two of three passes for 40 yards and rushed once for 15 yards during Detroit's preseason opener against the Patriots.

    Savage looked sharp and logged roughly 10 snaps before ceding quarterback duties to David Fales, who proceeded to complete under 40 percent of his passes and wasn't impressive in any sense of the word. However, Savage did take a pair of sacks and possibly left the game due to one of them causing a potential concussion, per Chris Burke of the Athletic. If this turns out to be more of a health scare than anything, Savage shouldn't have a problem holding on to the No. 2 gig behind Matthew Stafford throughout the remainder of the preseason. If not, it's likely that Detroit will need to find some outside help to solidify the backup quarterback job.

  • Lions' Tom Savage: Expected to win No. 2 role

    Savage is expected to enter the upcoming season as the Lions' No. 2 quarterback, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

    Savage reportedly operated as the top backup throughout OTAs and minicamp. Connor Cook is no longer in town and only David Fales is around to compete for the No. 2 gig entering training camp. Given Fales' lack of starting experience, Savage seems like Detroit's best option if something were to happen to Matthew Stafford.

  • Lions' Tom Savage: Headed to Detroit

    Savage signed a contract with the Lions on Tuesday.

    Savage spent time with the 49ers and Bengals in 2018, but he hasn't appeared in a game since losing in six of his seven starts for Houston the year prior. He'll compete with Connor Cook for the No. 2 quarterback job unless the Lions bring in a better option before training camp.

  • Bengals' Tom Savage: Lands in Cincinnati

    Savage was claimed off waivers by the Bengals on Monday.

    Savage was waived by the 49ers for the third time this season over the weekend but won't have a chance to re-sign with the club after the Bengals needed to add depth to its quarterback room. With Andy Dalton (thumb) shifting to injured reserve, Jeff Driskel will slide into the starting role, leaving Savage on hand for No. 2 duties. Savage hasn't seen regular-season game action since Week 14 of the 2017 campaign as a member of the Texans.

  • Tom Savage: Let go again by 49ers

    Savage was waived by the 49ers on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Savage's third stint with the 49ers comes to an end as the team promoted running back Jeff Wilson from the practice squad. Savage could rejoin the team again but is unlikely to find himself in a situation to play since Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard are both currently healthy.

  • 49ers' Tom Savage: Re-signs with San Francisco

    Savage signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Friday.

    Savage will join the 49ers for his third stint with the club in just over a week after the team opened room for him on the roster by placing Raheem Mostert (forearm) and Emmanuel Moseley (shoulder) on injured reserve. The veteran signal-caller will step in as the No. 3 option on the depth chart behind Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard, in some order.

  • Tom Savage: Cut loose by San Francisco

    The 49ers waived Savage on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Savage's second stint of the season with the 49ers lasted only a few days longer than the first, with the 28-year-old sticking on the roster for a week and a half this time around. There appeared to be a chance that Savage would dress as the backup quarterback for the 49ers' Thursday night game against the Raiders, but the team's decision to release him implies some level of optimism that C.J. Beathard (wrist/thumb) will be available for No. 2 duties if unable to start. Nick Mullens is the only healthy signal-caller left on the roster.

  • 49ers' Tom Savage: Returns to San Francisco

    Savage re-signed with the 49ers on Monday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Savage became an option following Adrian Colbert's (ankle) placement on injured reserve. For now, San Francisco seems comfortable with C.J. Beathard at the helm. Savage will provide a veteran safety blanket should anything happen to Beathard, but even if he did find his way onto the field in 2018, his fantasy value figures to rank near the bottom of the league.
