Well OD, thanks for being honest!! At least you admit that you've been injury prone and if nothing, the Smithiak regime got one thing right.......... Other, good tight ends, that may or may not be more durable.
No bad will on you, it's time your injured ass moved on! It's best for both parties and the sooner you come to grips with that, the better. I hope you have a good 10 games this season!
