Although Tigers avoided arbitration with Max Scherzer Friday, GM Dave Dombrowski confirms team will still explore a long-term deal with Scherzer.
Scherzer's deal is for about $15.5 million for 2014 so it would be wise for the Tigers to pay Scherzer now versus waiting for him to have another dominating season thereby pushing his price tag even higher.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
