Franks would be great in the red zone for us, and I would love to have him...

I say no on Gardner, though...We already have Gaffney and he's very similar to Gardner...

Definately an upgrade over the Breuner Miller Shuffle. not only that it frees us up to have a very threatening 2 TE set with Franks and Miller. Not big on FA but this would be filling a big need, and also providing insurance incase Joppru is a complete loss.

I don't mind Gardner, I would take him but i wouldn't give him the amount of money he probably wants, but he does come up big sometimes, but he does drop alot to.

I dont take Gardner for any price. He Doesnt get open and when he does he lives up to his nickname. He would prolly add to Carr's Int total and would definately not take away from the doubling of AJ on the other side. Gardner is just an underachieving JJ Stokes Type of player. Big Slow and doesnt physically manhandle corners like he should be able too.

Also all this Rumor Mill for Franks is dated Mar. 10,?!?! If Houston was generally interested in Franks we would have signed him by now. It would be nice but thats nearly 3 weeks old news. Unless there is more recent rumors, you can count on franks being wrapped up somewhere else.

What about the kid that we had in camp as a TE but was a former basketball player? I think we could give him another try.

I think FA or trade wise, all the good WR are gone. We will do better in this years draft, and lets not forget we still have Armstrong, Sterling and SThomas in camp.

But would Matt Jones be considered a good blocking TE as well as speedy? I dont know hes got good speed, but i dont know enough about his strength and ability to control an outside rusher we dont need another Billy Miller type TE.

Want a TE? Get Kevin Everett in the 3rd round.

ya but 4.38 speed from a 6'6 240 lbs TE is so seductive.

Not really, if it turns out he is a stellar blocker then we would be drafting the first ever burner Deep Threat TE the NFL has ever seen. Big as Joppru fast as AJ? That would be cool but his weight is kinda Millerish at only 240.

Kellen Winslow Sr was said to be ahead of his time. He was torching teams deep as a TE in the 70's.

Right, but I imagine he'd be asked to bulk up a fair bit to play tight end - the alternative would be to keep the weight down around the 230-240 mark and try to make him Drew Bennett Mark II, which is what I suspect the Steelers will do when they draft him in the second.
