Lyons will never be a TE in our system. First requisite is that you can block, being able to catch and block will earn you a shot (see the Spaeth experiment). I think the f/o is contempt with just having a blocking TE at this point in bringing in Gilmore. I would love to have a heath clone on the other end of the line, but those kind of TE's don't come around very often. I think the saunders addition is the new spaeth prospect for this offense. Hopefully he can prove himself worth keeping around.

i think the plan is to use a better blocking TE than spaeth (whether it be johnson or this guy) and utilize miller more in the passing game.

he can be the tall redzone target ben wants and act more like j. finley, m. lewis, and those 2 dicks the p[atriots have.

Obviously it's really early, but early reports on Weslye Saundes are very good.
