Lions released WR Chaz Schilens, CB Domonique Johnson, OT Derek Hardman, DL John Drew, and DB Ross Weaver.
Schilens, 27, is clearly on his last NFL legs. Johnson made some waves early in camp by shutting down Mike Thomas in practice, though Thomas was also cut. Fri, Aug 23, 2013 04:41:00 PM

Lions signed WR Chaz Schilens, formerly of the Jets.

Schilens, 27, caught 28 balls for 289 yards and two touchdowns with the Jets last year, making six starts. Though blessed with a fast forty time and 6-foot-4, 225-pound build, Schilens is a possession receiver who averages 11.9 yards per catch in his career. He'll compete for a roster spot with Detroit.

Free agent WR Chaz Schilens is attending Patriots minicamp this week on a tryout basis.

Once considered a fantasy sleeper way back in 2009 as JaMarcus Russell's No. 1 receiver, foot injuries sent Schilens into a tailspin. He's never caught more than 29 passes in a season and recorded a 28/289/2 line with the Jets last year despite all their injuries at wideout. Schilens does look good getting off the bus at 6'4/225.

Free agent Chaz Schilens is visiting the Titans on Wednesday.

The Titans hosted fellow underwhelming free-agent wideouts Kevin Walter and Brandon Stokley on Tuesday. Schilens is the youngest of the group, at age 27. We don't believe any of the trio would be an upgrade for Tennessee.

Jets declared WR Chaz Schilens, QB Greg McElroy, CB Ellis Lankster, LB Bryan Thomas, C Caleb Schlauderaff, and TE Dustin Keller inactive for Week 17 against the Bills.

Schilens is an impending free agent and may have played his final snap with the Jets. The same can be said for Keller. McElroy wanted so desperately to play in Week 17 that he tried briefly to hide a concussion from the medical staff. McElroy ultimately -- smartly -- relented, so Mark Sanchez will start.

Chaz Schilens caught two passes for 27 yards in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Mark Sanchez threw the ball just 19 times on the day, and Schilens tied for second on the team with his three targets. It goes without being said, but Schilens isn't a fantasy option by any stretch of the imagination.

Chaz Schilens (head) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Schilens insists he's 100 percent. "Yeah, I'll be playing," said Schilens. "I'll be ready to go." Jets receivers are only an option in "race to the bottom" leagues against a strong Cardinals pass defense.

Updating an earlier item, Chaz Schilens (head) practiced in full Wednesday, and says he was never diagnosed with a concussion.

The New York Daily News reported earlier Wednesday that Schilens was concussed and hadn't been cleared for practice, but that apparently wasn't the case. Regardless, Schilens remains well off the fantasy radar.

Chaz Schilens (concussion) hasn't been cleared to practice.

Unless he's cleared on Thursday, Schilens is unlikely to suit up against the Cardinals. Schilens is averaging two catches for 20.5 yards this season.

Chaz Schilens caught two passes for 28 yards in Thursday night's Week 12 loss to New England.

Schilens reportedly suffered a head injury in the game, too, and was unavailable to the media after the contest. He was targeted just three times on the night, and the one which wasn't converted, was an end zone drop. Schilens lost a fumble as well. He's not worth an add in fantasy leagues.

Starting over a gimpy Jeremy Kerley, Chaz Schilens caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown in New York's Week 11 win in St. Louis.

Schilens also made a pair of critical special teams tackles. Schilens' "start" lasted all of one play, as Kerley checked in on New York's second play from scrimmage, but it was still his strongest game of 2012. The 48 yards were a season high, while the score was only his second of the year. Schilens' role is growing, but not to the extent that he's on the redraft-league radar.

Chaz Schilens was held to four receptions for 29 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Dolphins.

Schilens scored a touchdown on a five-yard pass from Mark Sanchez but was otherwise a non-factor. With Santonio Holmes (foot, injured reserve) out for the season, Schilens has an expanded role as the fourth option in the Jets' offense. He's still behind Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, and Dustin Keller for targets.

Chaz Schilens caught two passes for 23 yards in the Jets' Week 6 win over the Colts.

Schilens saw just four targets as he rotated with Stephen Hill. As long as Hill's hamstring gets through the upcoming week in good shape, Schilens' role will shrink even more. Move along.
Sun, Oct 14, 2012 04:45:00 PM

Chaz Schilens caught four passes for 29 yards in Week 5.

Schilens saw six targets on the night after being thrust into the starting lineup due to injuries. He offers very little after the catch, though. Rookie Stephen Hill will look to return in Week 6. Either way, Schilens isn't anywhere close to being valuable in fantasy.
Tue, Oct 9, 2012 12:43:00 AM

Jets WR Chaz Schilens caught three passes for 45 yards in the team's Week 4 blowout loss to the 49ers.

Schilens got the start with Stephen Hill (hamstring) inactive, and may be implanted into the starting lineup with Santonio Holmes (knee) out long term. The Jets' passing offense is putrid at this point, and Schilens lacks both consistency and durability. We wouldn't bother grabbing him in fantasy leagues.
