Default Make Wells a TE

I think it's a good idea considering his increase in size (like a TE) and his blocking and catching ability.

Well he definetly deserves to come back next year and it would be nice if he could find himself latching on as a TE. He bailed the team out on a few pass plays lastnight and throughout the year.

Wells is one of those under utilized talents in Caper's system---yesterday, he gets one carry for 10 yds and doesn't touch the ball again--take away DD's 2 longest runs and he didn't even avg 3 ypc--Capers will never play the hot hand. It's been suggested before to look at Wells at TE because he can run/block/catch and has decent size plus he's got a great attitude, but this won't happen as long as Capers is around...also, where's Capers main man Hollings at?:brickwall

Wells isn't a very good blocker so I wouldn't want him on an DE too much. He may be used as more of an H back...but they need to be good blockers too.

I'm just trying to find any reason to keep this kid here next season because he has been a bright spot this year and is a true special teams leader.

Yea, but blocking can be taught with someone who is interested in learning and has a good attitude. Oh, Gee, I forgot we don't have any coaches. You know Vinny you sound a little bit like the coaches and I know you don't mean to, but its the attitude of not trying people and letting them show what they can do. What do we have to loose, but we could gain a lot. Its like why aren't Mathis and Armstrong playing more? It makes no sense to keep that kind of talent on the bench. I would hope they have the metal capacity to learn at least one new play each week................. Again, I'm being sarcastic about the mental capacity and I hope you get the drift...........

He couldn't stick with the Browns and their TE's aren't very good behind Winslow.

One thing to consider is the blocking from movement which at FB/HB does is a different skill set than that of an on-the-line TE. Only a handful of the FB/TE/HB typr players have shown the ability to do both.

IMO we need someone that can get into the slot behind the linebackers and in front of the safeties ..... if lining Wells up at TE or H-back accomplishes that then try it ..... not much to lose at this point ...

TE ? no way , for one he's not the that great at catching in my opinion, FB would be a good spot for him though , but Norris does well there
