Saints signed TE Derek Schouman and WR Marques Clark.
A 2009 knee injury has derailed Schouman's career after he started 15 games for the Bills in 2008. He was out of the league last season. A Henderson State star back in 2005-06, Clark played for the California Football Alliance's National City Bears last season. Needless to say, he's the longest of long shots.

Redskins signed TE Derek Schouman.

Schouman has some versatility and at one time was pegged as Buffalo's starter. But injuries crippled him and he's drawn little interest on the open market over the last two years. Schouman is insurance for Chris Cooley's knee.
Wed, Aug 10, 2011 08:41:00 AM

Rams agreed to terms with TE Derek Schouman, formerly of the Bills.

Schouman had drawn little interest on the open market after sustaining multiple knee injuries over the past year and a half. He'll take the place of rookie Fendi Onobun, who his expected to be placed on injured reserve with a back problem.
Tue, Nov 16, 2010 05:18:00 PM

Bills released TE Derek Schouman with an injury settlement.

Schouman sprained his knee in preseason, and could latch on with another team when healthy. DajLeon Farr was signed to Buffalo's practice squad.
Wed, Sep 8, 2010 12:51:00 PM

Bills waived/injured TE Derek Schouman.

Schouman was expected to miss up to a month with a knee injury, but he'll spend the year on injured reserve instead. Jonathan Stupar will enter the season as the starter at tight end with J.P. Foschi in reserve.

Bills TE Derek Schouman is out 3-6 weeks after sustaining a knee injury in Thursday's preseason game.

"It’s going to be a while," said coach Chan Gailey. "Guy can’t catch a break." Schouman missed much of the offseason while recovering from surgery to repair a knee injury sustained early last season. It's not known if the current injury is related.
Sat, Aug 21, 2010 06:35:00 PM

Bills TE Derek Schouman finally revealed that he underwent surgery to repair a knee injury last season.

Schouman suffered a torn meniscus all the way back in Week 2. He participated in his first action in team drills Tuesday, but he's still not 100 percent healthy. Schouman is expected to compete with Shawn Nelson for the starting job in training camp.

Bills TE Derek Schouman (knee) is being held out of voluntary OTAs this week.

Shouman is still recovering from a torn meniscus suffered early last season. Shawn Nelson is the favorite to start this year for Buffalo.
Tue, May 25, 2010 12:45:00 PM

Bills re-signed restricted free agent TE Derek Schouman to a one-year, $1.684 million contract.

Schouman entered the 2009 season as the starter but missed all but two games after suffering what was believed to be a serious knee injury. He'll compete with Shawn Nelson for the starting job this season, though neither are attractive fantasy options.
Thu, Apr 8, 2010 07:31:00 PM

The Bills extended an original pick tender to restricted free agent TE Derek Schouman.

Schouman spent all but two weeks on injured reserve last season due to a torn knee ligament or ligaments; the team never announced the extent of his injury. It did occur in September, though, so he should be fine by next August.
Thu, Mar 4, 2010 05:35:00 PM

Bills placed TE Derek Schouman on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Schouman expressed initial optimism on Monday, but the MRI must have shown a torn ligament. The Bills' starter was on his way to a career game when he had his leg bent underneath his body in Week 2. Rookie Shawn Nelson will see a much larger role with Schouman out and Derek Fine battling a hamstring injury.
Tue, Sep 22, 2009 06:46:00 PM

Bills TE Derek Schouman expressed optimism about his knee after being carted off the field in Sunday's win.

Initial tests revealed no torn ligaments, which is a pleasant surprise after his leg bent backwards and underneath his body on a tackle. It's believed that Schouman has a sprain that could keep him out for a few weeks, which means rookie Shawn Nelson will fill in.
Mon, Sep 21, 2009 11:44:00 AM

Bills TE Derek Schouman left Sunday's game in the third quarter with a knee injury.

The starting tight end was carted off the field with announcers speculating that it could be a season-ending injury. Schouman was leading the team with six catches for 62 yards before the injury.
Sun, Sep 20, 2009 06:33:00 PM

Bills starting TE Derek Schouman is expected to split snaps with Derek Fine this year.

The Buffalo News calls Schouman No. 1A and Fine No. 1B, with Shawn Nelson being groomed to take over as the future starter. None of the Bills tight ends are worth drafting this year, save deep Dynasty leagues.
Wed, Sep 2, 2009 10:39:00 AM

Third-year pro Derek Schouman is expected to start for the Bills at tight end in Week 1.

Schouman, a former seventh-round pick, is the most versatile of the Bills' tight ends, while rookie Shawn Nelson is the best pass-catcher. Derek Fine also figures to be in the mix as a blocker as the team replace Robert Royals. Maybe if the team combined all three into one player they'd have something useful.
