That's all going to depend on Thomas. Watson was a given, so he'sdon't forget about Garrett Mills, they didn't spend a high 4th on him
irrelevant really. The other starting TE is what we're interested in.
Hopefully Thomas continues to make strides, but I don't like the Brady
signing one bit. Too much money for a one-dimensional TE. If somehow they
can resurrect his pass catching skills then it might be a different story.
Anyway, with the emergence of Heath Evans as a lead blocker they'll probably
go with more FB sets than in years past anyway. But he isn't much of a
receiving option. On the other hand, he'll be able to help in pass
protection more when they throw out of the 2 back set, which means Maroney,
Faulk, and Morris will get more opportunities coming out of the backfield.
Here's hoping Maroney develops his pass-catching skills, because they were
pretty disappointing last year.
for nothing. they were clearly intrigued with his FB/TE hybrid
possibilities and I'm sure that experiment is not over. who knows, if he
can stay healthy and with a full NFL offseason of training and technique
work, there may not be enough receptions to go around anyway to satisfy
the extra cash to Graham with Faulk, Maroney, Watson, Thomas, Mills, and
Morris all with decent or better receiving skills. with that group, all
they need to do is hit Kyle once and while to keep defenses a little
honest. additionally, if he can make a big catch once and a while then
he can fill the role of Fauria of past, maybe a little less in the
receiving but obviously more in the blocking. so as a whole, the group
of Watson, Thomas, Brady, and Mills ain't bad at all and there is a slew
of versatility there for all kinds of multiple sets to worry the defense.
