Fortunes heading in different direction for pro Tigers

It’s been a week of changing fortunes and opportunities for former Tigers currently playing in the NFL.

Former Missouri tight end Martin Rucker announced on his Twitter account Tuesday that he was waived by the Cleveland Browns.

The post read:

“Evening tweeples. I received word this evening from our GM that I’ve been released. I won’t kno anythng further until 2mrrw. Keep you posted.”

The story was later confirmed by ESPN reporter Adam Schefter. Rucker’s latest post, which reads, “We’ve got action. Keep ya posted,”  leads one to believe that he may be receiving interest from a few teams just a day after his release.

In better news for Tiger fans the Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that the Eagles are planning on giving Jeremy Maclin an increased amount of time in their rotation at wide receiver. Current starter DeSean Jackson is suffering from a groin injury, and Maclin may even be named the starter at one of the outside receiver positions.
