Pope's blocking is surprisingly not good either, considering how big he is.

I'm not so sure Pope has ever caught 40 passes in a season. He sure isn't here, with that other TE we have around here.....Keep in mind, this is the team that took 60 years to learn it was OK to pass to the tight end.

Winslow is - and has been a locker room cancer - just about everywhere he's been - not to mention a very unlikeable person.
I was working at a luxury products co. in Cleveland in 05/06 and Winslow came in there and wow - WHAT an asshole, a rude, nasty individual.

FO screwed up with W saunders. Still think he was going to be a very good TE.

Yeah I really liked Saunders too.

We need to add a TE to the roster no matter what. Neither Paulson or Pope can block. That's not gonna work with our offensive line and our terrible strength and conditioning program... I mean "bad luck" injuries.

He was suspended for 4 games.

Substance abuse? or PED? anyone remember. I thought it was PED, but looking back I think that was only because he was so jacked.

I think if Kellen Winslow Jr. could get healthy over the offseason and stay healthy he'd be a good option to pick up.
