He's a 4.6 40 guy. He may be better suited for tight end just wonder if he's big enough overall, know he has the height. Thomas coming back healthy would be huge. Think him and Turner could form a potent 1-2 te duo.

Forget about AGG. He is being given a Hail Mary last chance to make the team by moving him to TE. In two seasons in the NFL he has had a total of two touches and one reception. Does that sound to you like someone the staff trusts?

As for Turner, how is it you have elevated him in your mind above John Bates when Turner hasn't yet played a single snap in the NFL? Bates, on the other hand, is a veteran and an outstanding blocker who was graded the #1 run blocking TE in the NFL by PFF as a rookie and who has shown that he can be a reliable possession receiver. Should a team that would like to have a balanced offense sit down a TE who is one of the very best run blockers in the league at his position? The answer is "No."

I will say this about Turner: he looks like he could help us in the Red Zone with his size, body control, and good hands.

We will keep three TE's:

1. Thomas
2. Bates
3. Probably Turner

Agree with you about AGG doubtful working out here just an interesting scenario. I haven't forgotten about Bates at all. Turner and Thomas in obvious passing downs is what I'm referring to. I am well aware of Bates prowess for blocking success, as I have mentioned before. We have a lot of different tight ends with unique skill sets. Different 2 te sets is not out of the question with this unit at all.

Oh, I see what you mean now. Sure, why not have different 2 TE sets. I love the idea of role players myself. Let each player do what he does best.

I want Bates on the field a lot. He is a great blocker and will be perfect for Robinson now. Gibson quietly had a strong season last year just needs to correct his fumbling. Robinson is known for not fumbling. They could form a very good 1-2 punch if the oline does their job.

Dotson/McLaurin should absolutely ball out. So pumped about this duo.

Wow. From Sheehan on @AlGaldi podcast…

Someone told me recently… some of the players believe Dotson is the best receiver on the team.

That’s how great he looked in the offseason”

Lol if I were you, I would wait until middle of the season to decide if Dotson is legit or not. Every year, we always hype up one player during offseason only to be disappointed. This happens EVERY YEAR.

Totally agree but hard to not get excited about these comments for Dotson. In wait and see mode with him but him and McLaurin have super potential together along with a healthy Curtis Samuel.
