2020 Tight End Titillating Talk

Recommended Posts

For how much Hooper will get, I don’t think he’s worth it. He’s a good, non game breaker who’ll get big money. I’m pro the Henry gamble since he moves the needle if he’s healthy.

Also, very pro a Moss round 3 pick. I’d love a green and gold 84 jersey

Uuuuhhhh page 1

Asking him to take a pay cut or getting cut outright is hardly a free pass.

Wanting him back certainly is

FWIW, I thought Sternberger played pretty well the other day...

I did too.  We tried overpaying a washed up guy like Graham.  Let him walk and/or retire.   I say let's roll with Lewis as the grizzled vet in the TE room along with Tonyan and go with Sternberger as the starter in 2020.

I wouldn't mind taking a stab at Hooper or Henry in free agency, but if Gute doesn't want to throw more money at that position than just go with Sternberger.  He's talented .. just needs an opportunity.  I think his ability to run and move with ball will make him an impact TE in this league.  I'm just not sure if he's quite ready yet.  I'd throw him out there on day one .. sink or swim, kid.

If Jimmy retires do we free up 11 million instead of 8?

Nope.

If he wasn't related to Randy Moss, would people be as thrilled with him?

Rodgers wants Lewis back too. We need him as an in-line TE at this point.

I would never wear a Packers Moss 84 jersey  .. not the least bit appealing to me.

No, unfortunately the organization would mandate that if you want to remain a fan (or Owner) in good standing, you'd need to purchase (and wear!) Moss's jersey :)

Hmmm.  We tried free agency with Cook, Bennett and Graham.  We know how Cook turned out and we know that situation.  Bennett and Graham have to be deemed as failures.  

I guess I'm more inclined to bring back Lewis for what he is...a run blocking TE and rolling with Sternberger and Tonyan as opposed to spending large FA dollars, again, for a tight end.

I'd feel more confident about Tonyan if he hadnt missed a chunk of the season.

Makes it hard to gauge his 2nd year growth and project his future. It doesnt feel like he got much done this year.

He got reps.  Hard to tell if he really made a difference.  Certainly didn't look or feel like it in the passing game.  But I think he may have some run blocking skills.  I think that Jace probably has the higher ceiling as he showed a little more in the passing game.

Agree. Thats what I was kind of speaking to. Cant define him yet. Cant put a fork in him. Cant project great things.

Agree #2. Personally, I'd like to think Sternberger becomes TE1 for us next year. I dont think we're gonna be drafting a TE1 prospect this year. JG's got the experience and can do everything on the field (some things better than others....) - but his dynamic receiving skill days are behind him now.

Overall - we got a lot of nothing much from the TE position this year...which was disappointing. Other teams are virtually surviving off their TE production. We struggled to get our targets. Different schemes...got it....but if you've got the goods at a position.....you fit it into your scheme.

Say bye to Jimmy Graham, bring back Lewis, tell Jace he is the future and has a big role next season. There we go, TE is sorted out
