Tennessee Titans

Playing for the Titans, Scaife had a productive rookie campaign. Despite being the third-string tight end, he managed to catch 37 passes for 273 yards and 2 touchdowns.

With the Titans selecting Vince Young with the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, Scaife is reunited with his good friend and former Longhorns teammate. In December 2006, Scaife was sidelined by an ankle injury and rookie tight end Cooper Wallace was signed to provide depth at the position.[1]

In 2007 Bo Scaife came in 3rd on the team with 46 catches 248 yards and 1 touchdown.

Bo Scaife is the only tight end in NFL history to rush for a touchdown, catch a touchdown, return a kickoff, and record a tackle in the same season.

On February 28, 2008 the Titans gave Scaife a second-round tender for a one year deal. He was re-signed on April 2.

Scaife appears with Vince Young as part of Reebok's NFL "Join the Migration" commercial.

On February 19, 2009, the Titans placed their franchise tag on Scaife. On April 27, Scaife signed the franchise tag tender, worth $4.46 million for the 2009 season.[2]

Scaife is represented by agent Drew Rosenhaus.
