I think that is a bit more than his slotted position. I think the 4th year was a sticking point, and they got it resolved with a bit more signing bonus and total money.

JB, I've read where Doc, as well, referenced a 3yr gig possibly being a sticking point as well but don't remember seeing it in print. Was it?

Yeah, the TE that was picked 4 or 5 spots in front of him signed a 3 year deal. And the shorter term is much more beneficial to the player.

It was board speculation.

If they play well and stay healthy. Otherwise it's probably better to get that money up front in a 4 year deal.

There's a lot of competition at TE this year. I hope James Casey finds a way to stick on this team. He's too talented a player to let go, but if we go by pure TEs he's got an uphill battle with OD, Dreesen, Graham, and Hill.

I wouldn't be surprised if Hill's PUP or IR.

Casey's got the benefit of also being a backup FB and LS. He needs to show some TE pass catching skills but I wouldn't be surprised to have 4 TE's stick.

Every single TE went down one time or other with an injury during last season so they where basicly forced to draft another TE because value added to offense.

Garrett Graham provides solid depth, but its going to be hard to keep him off the field especially as the others continue to battle injury problems. In fact its very possible he rotates in first off the bench, to give Owen his breather. Also think they really liked him & wanted that 4th year he could become a fixture of this offense, great value while addressing depth from another excellent 4th rd. selection.

Speaking of healthy TEs....what's the status of OD? I have him on my FF team this year as a starter.

you guys could be right but I'm more worried about Casey with this signing. Hill can still support strong side, run blocking/pass protecting if he can get healthy.

Agreed - I think Hill goes on the PUP, and if he's healthy enough after 6 weeks, they deal with it then, of if he's not healthy enough, he gets IR'd.

Given the fact O.D., Hill, and Dreesen are all coming off of surgery, I would imagine they'll keep all five around in some form or fashion for as long as they can.

If the coaches were worried about that I'd assume they'd start using a smaller backup o-lineman in a blocking roll as some other teams started doing last year (The Jets used a backup guard in this way and their running game was one of envy)

I think we brought in Rashad Butler like that a few times last season.
