purely a special teamer (but a good one). He's also a 'cane, and this team is trying hard to collect them all . Good football roots too.

He went to the same high school as ST. A good friend of mine is a huge Cane's fan and he said he wouldn't be suprised if he made the team. He also said he is smart and a hell of a worker.

It's becoming more and more obvious that we, probably above all other teams, like U players.

I like that he's a good buddy of ST--maybe it's to help Sean feel happy during the offseason workouts in DC?

He's a thrid stringer at the U, but he'd be a starter lots of other places, most likely. We'll see--it's good to have competition at the TE, given its importance in Suanders' offense.
