I thought it would be a decent idea to put in a thread specifically for this position, given how bad it was during the exhibition games. I'll start the ball rolling with a player that Haley is familiar with:

The Cardinals have apparently just cut Leonard Pope:

You know, we could solve this problem completely by drafting Gresham next year.

This city continues to have an irrational love of the tight end position. There are far greater needs on this team.

Understandable considering all the titles Tony G delivered to KC.

There have been any number of threads discussing how bad the Chiefs are at various positions. Tight end is among the weakest spots on this team. Pope just got cut and played for Haley last season, but I didn't think the board would want a separate thread for every single player cut loose, so I listed the entire group.

But thanks for your input.

IMO Pope could be an upgrade over all of them. Ryan, Cottam and O'Donnell range from terrible to really bad.

Ryan can help and start for now but we need help there. Cottam is a tall twig who can't block. O'connell is more of and Hback as is Crabtree who i think they want to put on the ps and develop.

If we don't find a replacement for Mike Cox i'm gonna be pissed.

He's tall and he can't catch the ball, but Cottam is no twig.

-- Browns No. 3 TE Competition --
Fri Sep 4, 2009 --from FFMastermind.com

•The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Browns second-year TE Martin Rucker is on the bubble. He is competing for the team's No. 3 tight end job with TE Aaron Walker.

Yes poor choice of wording on my part. I'm just pissed he hasn't developed as a blocker being 270 lbs. He never seems to be aware when they throw his way either. Overall just dissapointed in a talented prospect. I think he ran like 4.7 40. Maybe they will keep him just inactive on game days and see if he comes along like Morgan has in the last few weeks.

Good point.

The Pats have done pretty well without much at tight end.

You don't really need a stud TE. You DO need guys who can block. But in terms of receiving, you can just as easily run an offense throwing to your running backs.

Hell, you've already got the best tight end the Pats have had this decade: Mike Vrabel. :D

Depends what team you are and what your TE can do.

Dallas Clark is an extremely valuable TE.

Hmmm, Martin Rucker anyone?


Though he can't block worth a fuck

actually the pats seem to value the tight end quite a bit they drafted Daniel Graham and Ben Watson in the first round
