Minimal posting today, look for more tomorrow. Until then, some news on Cory Schlesinger. He has signed with the Miami Dolphins, meaning the fullback will obviously not be back with Detroit next season.
Schlesinger visited with Miami officials last week.
A prototype fullback during most of his Detroit tenure, and regarded league-wide as one of the NFL's premier lead blockers, Schlesinger's role was dramatically diminished in the offense installed by Lions' offensive coordinator Mike Martz last season. The Martz system rarely employs a fullback and Schlesinger did not log a single carry and registered only eight receptions.
