My thoughts on Jefferson are the same. PS for a year while he develops and gains strength. Then see if he can make the team next year. It's one of the keys for good teams to stay good. Keep finding the "diamonds in the rough" and develop them as solid role players or starters to replace the injured or FA's.
Hopefully we can stash him on the PS. Last year we had 2 or 3 of our PS players get signed to a different team's active roster.
If he plays well in the preseason we either need to let him go or sign him.
You don't see many guys his size (apparently up from 240 now) catching the ball up close like Watt does. If he takes a few lessons from Watt's book about swatting the ball up the air i'm sure he'll start catching them more effectively. (Has been doing it since college just like Watt)
Players like that, you gotta keep an eye on.
