Can Joseph Fauria be reliable tight end for Lions?

He's a major red-zone threat -- 6-foot-7 with legs that look more like stilts -- and he's a fan favorite for his dance moves during touchdown celebrations. But can Joseph Fauria develop into a reliable tight end in all situations for the Detroit Lions? Can he block? Can he run quality routes to get open anywhere on the field, not just down near the goal line where he can...

Joseph Fauria in 'The History of the Touchdown Dance'

Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is a dancing machine. The 24-year-old spent his rookie season celebrating his seven touchdowns with some serious moves in the end zone. Fauria became a fan favorite for his entertaining little numbers with his tribute to NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” ranking as one of his top celebrations. Fauria has a lot to live up to this season — in the...

Will Joseph Fauria get any opportunities this season?

Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is the odd man out with the offense this year. He was a surprise success last year as a rookie, scoring seven touchdowns on 18 receptions. His dancing in the end zone after scoring became a bit of a national sensation and he even earned two starts at the end of the season. The Lions didn’t feel confident enough in him though to count on him...

Detroit Lions: Both sides of the Eric Ebron argument

It seems as though the Eric Ebron era is upon us in Detroit, and I’m not sure the new regime has been accepted with open arms. If twitter and facebook are a barometer, I’d say that the decision the Detroit Lions made to draft Ebron with the tenth overall pick was cloudy with a chance of suicide. Now, all of my known associates are morons when it comes to sports, so there’s...

Lions have found some great targets in Kris Durham and Joseph Fauria

Kris Durham has filled the shoes of Nate Burelson. After catching three passes for 30 yards against the Packers last week, he had a career-best eight catches for 83 yards Sunday.

WATCH: Joseph Fauria is an end zone dancing machine

After Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden recorded back-to-back pass interference penalties, the Detroit Lions had the ball on the Browns goal line.  Lions quarterback Matt Stafford threw one up for grabs for tight end Joseph Fauria, who used his size and athleticism to make the easy catch.  Fauria then got up and did another hilarious touchdown dance, thought I’m not sure...

Lions TE busts out 'N Sync touchdown celebration

Lions undrafted rookie tight end Joe Fauria is quickly becoming one of my favorite Lions.  In Week One, he already provided one of the best touchdown dances of the year.  And Sunday, he dusted off a quick version of N’Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” after catching a five-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford. Joe Fauria, American hero.

Joe Fauria breaks out silly dance after first career TD (Video / GIF)

Detroit Lions tight end Joe Fauria scored his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday's season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, but that accomplishment has been foreshadowed by the dance moves he broke out during the celebration.
