Is he a TE or an OT now?

@PatDStat I did. He did his job well, for the most part. Chiefs had him at OT 2 years ago.

Makes sense. I remember he was here a few years ago on our 90 man roster. I think he got cut when we went to 53 and ended up with the Patriots. Several people were impressed with him in the preseason.

Between this news & the potential of re-signing Donnie Jones, the disappointment of losing Quin, Casey, & Barwin is almost an afterthought! Go Rick Go! It makes paying for those season tickets soooo much easier. Lol!:splits:

Well, we really don't have a blocking TE on the roster. If he can fill that hole for minimum, I'd much rather get him now than spend a late pick on one.

Take that need of your draft list

I remember liking him when we picked him up as a UDFA a couple years ago. Solid pickup.

I am just glad to find out our FO has a pulse.

If that happens I can take Mike Williams off my draft list.

Owen Daniels 40 yd. dash - 4.65 (NFL Combine)
Steve Maneri 40 yd. dash - 4.84 (Pro Day)
Garrett Graham 40 yd. dash - 4.68 (NFL Combine)

I could see him blocking and receiving...

Makes sense to address cheaper options via free agency so you can draft the more expensive ones via draft. Maybe it's not as sexy or generates the buzz but in this era of salary cap it makes good sense :money:
