Would be sweet to have an Antonio Gates type athalete at TE or DE. http://dimemag.com/2008/07/joey-dorsey-wants-to-play-in-the-nfl/ Joey Dorsey Wants to Play in the NFL By Andrew Katz Could Dorsey play in the NFL? (photo. NBA)Joey Dorsey is 6-9 265 lbs. physical freak with Evander Holyfields shoulders. He was the sole enforcer on Memphis national runner-up squad, swallowing up virtually every rebound and tossing weak shots around the tin. The Rockets liked Dorseys ridiculous athleticism (38-inch vertical) and toughness enough to trade for him despite being stacked three or four-deep already at power forward. But Joey doesnt seem concerned about his spot on the Rockets. He cant get his mind off of another Texas team that has inquired about his services. At a recent workout with the Rockets, the Texans came to scout Dorsey as a potential Antonio Gates (Kent State, San Diego Chargers)/Tony Gonzalez (Cal, Kansas City Chiefs) two-sport standout. Footballs my passion - its my first love, Dorsey told us. They said Ive got some of the fastest feet for a big man theyve ever seen. I can see myself playing [defensive] end or tight end. Maybe Dorsey doesnt realize that with the NFL starting in August and running through late January, it would be directly conflicting with at least two months of the Rockets regular season. Or maybe hes just prepping himself for another career if things dont work out with the NBA. I almost hope our PF's do so well the Rockets wont need him. Like to see what he could do in pads. He was really an enforcer in college basketball. He looks tough enough and fiery enough to make that kind of a move forsure.
