    I propose "The Natural" He hasn't played the position in 4 years and naturally came back to be a beast. This is only of course if he becomes a beast which I believe is a very real possibility.

    We'll talk in 2014, thats probably the time when he stands a chance to play TE. Right now he's just too inexperienced to be a factor.

    I think if he shows flashes in the preseason games (where he should get ample opportunity) he can unseat Stevens. Stevens has near great hands and can block well but lacks the raw athleticism TT has. It's definitely an uphill battle but the chance is there for the taking.

    I'll come around on Thompson when he starts to produce.

    I must admit though. Rarely did I key in on TT much at all last year. The only time I remember seeing him do anything was his special teams block that reminded me of a block that Adam Sandler would lay in the movie The Waterboy.

    He played a little H-Back and did well but as a "Y" or "F" hes meh. Most good TE's can handle those positions, but hes still learning.
