Re: Chargers sign Frank "the tank" Summers
Let me just try to understand the Arians logic:
He doesn't believe in having a true FB because it is a wasted spot on the roster. He stated that he would rather have a TE line up as an H-back because it allows him to have more talented players on the field. So he uses David Johnson, who lines up mostly in the backfield and acts as a poor man's FB. Over the course of 2 years, Johnson has caught 6 passes.
I have no beef with Johnson and do think he's improved as a blocker. But what the hell? He obviously isn't acting like a TE, doesn't have the receptions and seems to start in the backfield. Why not just get a true FB and get those lead blocks we expect?
