Source close to Frank Summers tells me 2nd year pro will land on his feet and that this isn't his {Franks} fault. Blamed Arians.

With a nickname like Frank the Tank he could have become a fan favorite. Too bad his stint at fullback proved him to be anything but a tank. Watching him play against the titans and bears last year actually made me miss Carey Davis

I don't know why we ever drafted him. He played half back in college not full back. If the coaching staff is serious about using a full back they need to draft a true full back.

At the time they weren't serious about it. Only later were they under orders to get the running game going, which tends to entail a true blocking fullback.

I'm disappointed to see this happen, but not surprised. Most tailbacks in the NCAA can't make the switch to FB, Tank was no exception. I also blame Ariens and his no FB philosophy.
