    according to PFT. he's also on the trading block. miami's shopping him for a 3rd rounder. i think a team like chicago needs to jump on that offer.

    Why are the Dolphins trying to get rid of McMichael, but earlier they signed David Martin? Big downgrade if you ask me. I can understand it for salary cap reasons, but I don't think you're gonna get much out of Martin next season.

    The texans need to jump on that & let Daniels operate between 2nd string TE & 3rd WR.

    I agree with you, but Kubiak signed Putzier to a hefty 4 year deal last season. You gotta think he's gonna fit in somewhere other than 3rd TE. IMO, I'd start Putzier and move Bruener to 3rd.

    Is that the plan? or have i missed something?

    well, it seems like we're rebuilding now under cameron, so getting rid of someone like mcmichael, who's been a constant underachiever the past couple of years could be a part of that. i don't think martin is an upgrade at all, but when trying to rebuild and save money, ya gotta move someone, i guess. i dunno. not a very wise move overall, unless they have something in mind that i'm unaware of.

    No thanks, I draw the line when you beat your prego girl friend and throw her out our your moving car.

    McMichael is not even close to being a real man.

    I think Buff, Carolina, Cincy and New Orleans need the most help at TE.

    Chicago has a solid TE in Desmond Clark.

    I think both of you are crazy...


    Owen Daniels is the man....3rd WR/ 2nd TE ??? Why would we do that ? That doesn't make any sense....He was one of the best rookie TE's last year, if not THE best, in an offense where our QB has a hard time finding his SECOND option...

    He was clearly better than Putzier, and beat him out for the starting spot..

    I don't understand some peoples thinking...

    I never said he wasn't the man. I'm simply saying that he can split out wide as well. My question is what are we doing with Putzier? Is he going to be the #2 TE behind Owen?

    Mcmicheal has Antonio gates potential sans the character. Putzier was trash when he came over, wasn't hard to beat him out. the only reason Kubes picked him up is b/c he knew the system & player & he could be had for cheap. Daniels looks better suited to play WR to me anyway, he's on the smallish side & if i'm not mistaken he mostly played WR in college after a brief stint at QB right? Let him slim back down & get out there & block on those toss sweeps. Yeah he was one of the best rookie TE's last year but other than Vernan Davis, i don't recall anyone else besides--- Colston but we all know he was pretty much a WR anyway.

    You also said, "we should start Putzier"....

    Why would we do that, when owen Daniels is clearly better than him ?

    My thinking is that we're not going pay a backup TE the kind of money we're paying Putzier. Or are we? If Daniels is going to be the #1 guy, then why pay Putz that kind of money?

    David Carr doesn't use TEs.

    Putz was more of a coach.

    Owen Daniels played TE in college...

    And I checked...He wasn't one of the best...He was THE best...

    And it's not my fault if you can't recall Mercedes Lewis,Anthony Fasano, Dominique Byrd,Joe Klopfenstein,Leonard Pope,David Thomas....LMAO....All those guys were taken before ours by the way...

    It was supposed to be one of the deepest TE's drafts in a while....

    And by the way....All those guys were taken before Mr. Daniels....

    I understand that line of thinking....

    But you still shouldn't sit the more talented player because he makes less money...

    Owen is the starter....
