Default Re: 6th round Ryan Griffin TE Uconn

Saw Ryan Griffin working out at the 24 hr fitness in Rice Village about 3 weeks ago. Went up to him and asked "Are you Ryan Griffin?" and he said yes, and asked my name and shook my hand. He was surprised that someone recognized him. Very friendly though and real nic. I asked him if he was trying to be TE2 this year, and he said "I'm trying to be TE1!". Wish him the best.

Was a big fan of Griffin in college and was pleased that we drafted him. I think he's the #1 TE on this roster within the next year.

TE just became a major need for us.

I really think people are sleeping on Griffin. He's better than Graham. But I agree that we need to look for another TE somewhere with OD gone.

I agree. I really like Griffin as well. I think we should sign a vet in FA and draft a TE in the mid-rounds.

Better blocker, I agree. Better pass catcher, not yet imo

Griffin/Vet min Blocker/A.C. Leonard or Lyerla in the 5th = upgrading the TE position.

griffin and a top 3/4 TE rookie will give us a good TE group for the future, not as bad then on first glance

The Texans must feel good with Supernaw, in that he was reported to have signed a 3 year exclusive rights contract. Somewhat surprising since he had a foot stress fracture which by further reports shows no sign of being surgically paired. Another big man with a foot fracture. But this one not surgically attended to.

Unless there is an unusual problem, a stress fracture shouldn't need repair. Just time to heal. It must be common in big men since they place so much stress on their feet. My son had one and never missed a beat. He wore a boot for a couple of weeks and that was that. There was no long term consequence.

Is there any guaranteed money with a EFA? I think Supernaw has an uphill climb for a roster spot, especially if they draft a TE and re-sign Graham.

Do Supernaw and Quessenberry's injuries lend to any theories on equipment problems?

Is his nose still bleeding? Don't sound like a McNair guy to me. Not denying his talent at all but Mr. Mc has his standards and hasn't really shown a propensity to deviate from them too far. Is that a sound philosophy? I can't make that call but I believe he's decided what his standards are and has stuck pretty closely to them. Is that the best way to win? You're on record as saying "No".

I've listened to the talking heads though that say we're a "Model Franchise".

Back to your stance though, does that make a winning franchise? Short term I'd agree with you: NO. Long term, different answer.

Guess we'll both find out who's perspective is the right one in the LONGER RUN.

Hang in there steelb. This team will make you proud to be a fan.
























Sooner or later.

Mr. Mc has shown a propensity to make $$$$. He hasn't shown a propensity for having a clue as how to build a winner. Hopefully BOB can change some of Mr.Mc's philosophies on how to build a winner over the next 8 yrs (Atleast) that Mr.Mc will give BOB to try to turn this franchise into a winning franchise.

My understanding EFA is that they don't get signing bonus or anything that will count against the cap, but teams will give a few thousand either in an 'advance' or 'moving/living' bonus' for dudes to make through the off-season workouts and such. Same with the "futures" contract guys.

This is a I heard thing, versus I know thing, so I am open to being corrected and proven really wrong.

According to Rotoworld:

12/27/2013: Signed a three-year, $1.335 million contract. 2014: $420,000, 2015: $510,000, 2016: Exclusive Rights Free Agent.



He has no signing bonuses. So it doesn't appear that anything is guaranteed. From Sportrac

Year........Base.....S. Bonus.......Misc......... Cap Hit..... Dead.....Guaranteed
2014........420,000-----0-----------0---------420,000------0------------0
2015........510,000-----0-----------0---------510,000------0------------0

Stress fractures of nonweight-bearing bones such as the fibula are commonly treated nonsurgically. Stress fractures of the foot can and are many times treated conservatively........if you an accountant. Stress fractures of the foot in athletes.......especially BIG athletes are virtually always treated surgically to avoid the high complication/non healing/recurrence/progression to future overt fracture rate.

I brought that subject up last year, in light of all the ankle/foot/toe/lower leg(including calf strains) injuries. Somewhat suspect.

I don't think Graham is coming back.

They signed that big TE, Still have Griffen...Cut OD...

I think they are going to draft another TE in this draft...
