Saunders isn't getting released...if anything David Johnson is in jeopardy. I liked Pope in college and I think he is an instant upgrade of DJ and is better than Wes Lyons who couldn't catch the ball in college and can't make an NFL team

Multiple TE's seems to be the wave of the future in a lot of Pass happy teams...

Upgrade? I'm not sure how his blocking is but he spent 7 years in the NFL and his best year yardage wise was 247 yards. I doubt he will be catching many balls from Ben. I would prefer to see Saunders who actually has an upside in there

6'8 tight end in the redzone. Heath Miller is going to benefit from having a big body to compliment his style. We NEED to take advantage of Heath's abilities. It's f*ckin time now.

I'll take a suspended Saunders over David "Stonehands-Whiffs on Blocks-Waste of a Roster Space" Johnson any day of the week, month, year, decade.....he is the absolute worst.

His nauseating attempted "block" in Super Bowl XLV where he whiffed on Clay Matthews did us in. That single play cost us a 6th ring. Down only 21-17, in Green Bay territory, riding all momentum, he took a good time to make the worst whiff of his career. Mendy didn't have a chance.

That ball popping out is a worse image for me than Busy's 2005 fumble in Indy. I still can't watch that play.

Exactly. We need to give Miller some chances, he needs to be a piece that makes this offense as perfect as possible. Haley's going to need to get him the ball more.
