Default Malcolm Sheppard Waived/Hill activated

Just noticed on transactions page at HT.com that Malcolm Sheppard has been waived. TE Hill has been activated.

I'm shocked that the best DT on the team has been cut. Hold on, I'm not newtexan and am not shocked at all.

Will be interesting to see if Hill gets any play. If he is meant to be the best blocking TE we have it might make our run game even better.

Default Re: Malcolm Sheppard Waived/Hill activated

Hill, without doubt will re-inforce our run and even our pass block ability. But don't expect much in the reception numbers. The down side is that teams may tend to get more of a heads up for the run...........but then again, they have to stop it.

This move may be also in anticipation of helping the OTs, especially Winston after his last poor show (injury?)

Wasn't Sheppard a 3rd round pick? And if so, Charles Hill and now Sheppard? Really?

I guessing you are confusing him with Earl Mitchell.

Charles Hill was a third round pick DT from our very first draft in 2002 that was pure fail. Hardly played a down for us and didn't last long at all.

Hill was drafted in 09 10 picks after Quinn in the 4th rd. He is an excellent blocking TE with athletic moves/hands of a Jermichael Finely but as we've seen has exteem difficulty staying healthy on game days.

He will change his name to formertexan or extexan. He will then begin complaining that Sheppard be promoted from fry cook to cashier.

Yup. He is a small lineman with hands. If he can stay healthy he can be part of interesting 2 te sets.

We've got 4 TEs, if OD is good to go. A couple of 3 TE sets sprinkled in there would be even more interesting.

He won't stay healthy.

He'll get hurt again.

As if there is any doubt about this? I mean, it is what it is.

Get our one or two games out of him, do an injury settlement when the impending injury actually occurs in the near future, and move on. Rick Smith should already have the paperwork drawn up and on the corner of his desk, IMO.

I like the idea of the 2 TE set. I heard that OD may not be avail Thursday. As long as we have Dressen or Casey on the 2 TE set with Hill, we will still have a pass catching TE threat. Having Hill available should help out our running game even more. Not sure what type of special teams player he is.

His name is Anthony Hill, we drafted him in the 4th round of last year's draft. He played in 5 games last year until he tore his ACL against the Seattle Seahawks on Dec.13. Hill has had one catch (for 9 yards against the Colts.) Hill's strengths are in the run game, but he'll mostly be asked to play on Special Teams.

Thats what I am thinking. Having that extra blocker will help the running game and the pass protection. Its like having 6 olineman. Plus if you completely forget about him, he can sneak out and grab a pass or two.
