I really liked this kid as a Cyclone and was hoping they'd grab him in the draft.  He's huge and athletic.  Project for sure with the position switch, but a low risk signing.

They can call him a TE but he’s listed at 227 on Wikipedia. 

Definitely thin for a TE, but huge for a WR.  He's 6'5"

So he's a 227 lb TE?  

Yeah but I mean he can gain 15-20 pounds like I have during COVID...making an a** dent on my couch and Doritos.

I remember liking this kid going in to the draft last year... Interesting move. 

Would much rather see JWHO cut and replaced with Butler to be that "big" WR.  It's physically impossible for him to be a worse option than 0 catches for 0 yards.

Howie sure played it smart cutting that TE they liked who went to the Colts. 

Just another example of Howie getting cute with the roster management thinking he could sneak him through waivers and add him to the PS.  He got burned the same way we burned Detroit when signing Huntley.  Thought for sure Togiai would have stuck as TE3 especially since we run a lot of 12 personnel and it seems it may be getting time to move on from Ertz.  But it's OK ... we have Rodgers ... again.  <_<
