Fiedorowicz was selected by Houston in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft and signed a three-year contract extension worth $21.5 million with the Texans last summer. He has 89 catches for 881 yards and six TDs in his career.
Rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman will start for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday in place of the injured Tyrod Taylor, the team announced.
The Bills are 6-6 and contending for an AFC wild-card berth entering Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Taylor was injured on Buffalo’s first play from scrimmage in last Sunday’s 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots when he was sacked while scrambling toward the sideline. Taylor remained in the game until early in the fourth quarter, when he was carted off. In his place, Peterman completed 6 of 15 passes for 50 yards.
The Bills benched Taylor before their Nov. 19 game against the Los Angeles Chargers in favor of Peterman, a fifth-round draft pick in 2017. Peterman threw five interceptions in the first half against the Chargers before being replaced by Taylor, who reclaimed the starting job the following week.
Brown currently leads the NFL in receptions (80) and receiving yards (1,195). He is tied for second with eight receiving touchdowns.
The Steelers are currently 9-2 on the season, three full games in front of the Ravens for the lead in the AFC North.
1987 was supposed to be a magical year for Vince Evans. The former Bears quarterback had returned to the NFL after several years in the USFL, and found himself in Los Angeles, where he’d gone to school at USC, as a backup with the Raiders.
Jones claims that details of the contract were not disclosed and that the deal moved away from a more incentive-based version. He also alleges that the committee is not unanimous on the deal, going back on Blank’s assurance that the committee would be in complete agreement on it.
