    A TE was expected to be signed, and who knows, he may just develop into something useful. Nice size, and he is athletic. Good project player.

    By last reports we only had around $15 million in available cap space. I wonder how we fit him in?

    God I know...maybe we can put some escalator clauses in there because it's gonna cost the Packers some coin for this guy, that's for sure.

    This guy is a major project for the Packers to undertake, if he survives 2 seasons on PS then he'd be doing well. By all accounts hes tremendously athletic and hes local, so why not.

    Considering Humphrey is pretty much already on IR, might as well get another TE in there with Alcorn and Harris to battle for that 3rd stringers job.

    Nothing but a camp body/project at this point. The NFL is littered with former bball players that tried to convert to TE and failed.

    I will be happy to see him do well, but I think even to mention of Antonio Gates when talking about this guy is far too premature.

    GO PACK GO!!!
