    We've had a very unusual cool front for mid June with dry northerly winds come thru so the humidity levels currently are down and the temp not that high,
    so why would they keep the team indoors today which is what happened according to the report ?

    Rich Lord said that they’ve had Jordan Akins working exclusively with the wr group.

    Thought that was interesting.

    They might be doing that since Hopkins and Fuller have been rehabbing injuries and I don't think they are full participants yet.

    As bad as I think OB has been I can't see that being the primary or even a driving factor to have him exclusively at wr if that report from Lord is accurate.

    Would make much more sense to have the guy playing and practicing at the position they intend on him playing and giving some of the bubble wr's those reps.

    Sounds like they want him at the least playing more of a hybrid role vs being a more traditional TE.

    No hope of him blocking. Good pick

    If he can play WR passably then they can carry 4 TE's.

    Yeah to me he was like a better more explosive Stephen Anderson.

    Akins and Warring to resurrect the Gronk/Hernandez TE attack? I could only wish.

    They will probably only carry 3 TE's.

    Akins or Warring will probably end up on IR/PS

    I will bet Akins, since they just drafted Warring and Akins is practicing at WR.
