TE Jim Kleinsasser a Vikings
Since TE Jim Kleinsasser signed with Vikings, what other options do we have for Gibbs to run his offense? I thought Kleinsasser will be a skin and we would have an ideal TE for Gibbs blocking schemes. Since itís no more possible should we draft Winslow?
Two words to keep an ear out for:
Walter - - - - Rasby.
He will come cheap and will do what the Joe Gibbs offense needs most from a TE. He will block like a third OT.
There is so guy from tenessse, i forget his name, but he is a big good blocking tight end.
What about Erronn Kinney?

Yep. I overlooked Rasby when I was doing my free agency scouting reports, but he would be a good fit. Spurrier let him go because he was a better blocker than a pass receiver (go figure!). The Saints picked him up, but now they have Ernie Conwell, David Sloan and Boo Williams, so there's no more room for Rasby.
Here's his profile:

The [color=#0000ff]Tennessee Titans[/color] have announced the team has reached agreement on a multi-year contract with TE [url="http://www.kffl.com/player/1888/nfl?PHPSESSID=92817c0fbba1ab117fa926e926c16e1c"][color=#0000ff]Erron Kinney[/color][/url].
There are a couple other guys I'd like to see the Redskins pursue. Check out my TE scouting report here:
Do we now consider Kellen Winslow Jr? I still think were alot better off taking a " Chance " on offense with a Robert Royal, a Walter Rasby, ect. I think we cant take the same " chance " with players on defense, so I would shy away from Winslow Jr. Anyways does anyone think we take him?

I'm hoping they pass on Winslow and go for Sean Taylor, Tommie Harris or another top defender. I just don't think they need Winslow as much as the guys they could get on defense who would have an immediate-- and much more [i]necessary[/i] impact-- on offense. Of course, I didn't think it was "necessary" for them to get Mark Brunell, either...
Yep, the word on the street is Rasby will be brought back.
He's a heck of a blocking TE, seems like a perfect fit in this system.
Crisp, thanks for the Kinney update. While I like Taylor and they say he's the real deal (the next Lott or Roy Williams), I'm not all that down on Ohalete. I'd rather spend that no. 5 pick on Harris or Wilfork.
Knowing how tight ends block 70-80% of the time in Joe Gibbs' offense, it wouldn't make sense to take Winslow and pay him the kind of money a #5 pick will demand. If we had a 'West Coast' offense like the Packers or 49ers, where the TE plays a pivotal role in the passing game, Winslow more than likely would have been the way to go.
But, we will return to the Air Coryell/One Back offense where the TEs will spend most of the time slugging it out with DEs and blitzing LBs. That means it's Sean Taylor at #5 -- And that's that.
Bucs released TE Ken Dilger. I read somewhere he is a great pass blocking TE. May be we should get him. Afterall he did help Bucs get that SB.

Also we can consider bringing back Stephen Alexander. Since he was cut by Chargers.
Well, if we had a TE like Winslow then I think he'd get the ball, he's not a bad blocker either. I think he'd be a good fit. That said, I'd only take him if Taylor is gone. Taylor is my guy right now. I dont think the pick is worth Harris or Wilfork.

Stephen Alexander was worthless. I remember hearing how all we had to do was wait for him to "take the next step". He took many steps to the bench nursing injury after injury.
He was a bust at TE. I don't want him back here.
