Signed as an UDFA with the Pats in 2011 as a TE.
Released then picked up by the Dolphins.

Converted to OT.
Grown from 270 to 315 ?

Played very little the last two yearz.
1 offensive snap in 2012 and 18 in 2013 (and 80 ST snaps).
Normally used as an extra OT (similar to Gardner).

RFA, not tendered by the Dolphins.
Since he started as an UDFA, a third level tender of $1.4M wouldn't have brought them any comp pick.

Sounds like the Texans might have signed him at the minimum veteran level.

Read that he's not quite 100% yet.
(Was put on IR last November. )

Hardly sounds like competition to Newton ?!?

6'6"/315 conversion project (TE) took 18 offensive snaps in two games with Dolphins last year coming off ACL repair.

UDFA for short time with Patriots in 2011, later claimed by Dolphins. Gaine/OB connections.

This was a "former" Notre Dame player that people speculated Belichick might draft as a blocking tightend, especially since he like Belichick had avid lacrosse interests (both played the game), and played football at Notre Dame for former Belichick assistant and Irish head coach Charlie Weis. But the Notre Dame connection probably got screwed up when Yeatment got drunk as a skunk against team rules, and actually thought the main campuses sidewalk was the street. He was stopped after weaving on and off of this narrow sidewalk with his headlights off. He was thought to be so intoxicated that his headlights probably wouldn't have helped any anyway. He was forced to transfer schools after that...............but that was when he was ~19.

Well look at it this way, at least we're no longer afraid to sign someone that's not a choir boy.

If you like forgiveness after repentance, I can agree. If you tolerate ongoing misbehavior, then I disagree.

Nothing wrong with us choir boys.
