really, other than hartings (who was pretty decent, right?), i cant remember any former lions of significance. we did bring in jones for a look see, but we scouted him before he was even drafted as a lion.
Kirschke is another ex-lion, but again not a former Lion of significance. I'm with DACEB, this looks like a decent fit for a TE that can line up as FB when needed.

If he can be a lead blocker, Carey Davis might end up inactive some weeks.

Not a bad pickup as a third TE....the best thing to do is compare him to Dekker/Boyd...not Miller/Spaeth.

That being said...I STILL would have preferred using that roster spot for signing Dre Moore or Nick Hayden from their teams respective practice squads as a DE.

Last time I looked , ( last season), I thought we were loaded with tight ends. What happened to the land of the Giants?

Thanks, That about sums it up. Let's hope Heath stays healthy!

Hampton. They should use HAMPTON as a TE/FB. He's in good enough shape to play both ways.

McHugh was the starting FB and primary lead blocker for the 2002 Nittany Lions, the year LJ went over 2000 yards. Personally, I like the pick up. Think of him as a poor mans Chris Cooley.

They will use Starks as a pure blocking 3rd TE on run plays, but I would imagine there are plenty of sets where all 3 TEs are eligible and that negates Starks.

Who knows if this guy is just a stop gap for now, most likely. Sherrod seems to have impressed the staff, but he's young and raw. It would be nice for McHugh to get back to his lead-blocking ways, as some have stated he played the role well in college. That is definetly an area in need of improvement, neither of our TEs block very well in the H-back role.
