Default Re: Who is our new TE Tim Euhus

Tremendous leader and team player who sacrificed personal success for that of the team during his career with the Beavers … Considered to be one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the collegiate ranks, Euhus started 37 consecutive games while playing in 49 contests at OSU … A fine all-around athlete, he also competed for the school's basketball team as a freshman … The civil engineering major not only had a fine career on the football field, but he also excelled in the classroom and found love on campus, marrying OSU graduate Michelle Davis last June … For his career, he hauled in 98 passes for 1,346 yards (13.7 avg.) and nine touchdowns … Only Phil Ross (153 for 1,827 yards, 1985-89) had more catches and receiving yards by a tight end in school history … Has the distinction of earning a letter in basketball (1999-2000) at OSU before earning a letter in football, even though he was on a football scholarship … The last dual football-basketball letterman at OSU was another tight end, Justin Moore, who lettered in basketball as well as football in 1996.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Has a rangy, angular build with the ability to add at least 15 more pounds with no loss of speed … Comes off the line with adequate quickness when running long routes and runs hard all the time, using his leg drive and stiff-arm to run through tacklers … Knows how to use his hands to avoid the jam at the line of scrimmage and weaves through the under-coverage to sink down nicely for the ball … Has good knee bend and hip swerve, using his frame to push and leverage defenders getting into his routes … Capable of making sharp cuts and shows a good relationship with the quarterback, knowing when to come back to find the seam in the short zone when the passer is flushed out of the pocket looking for secondary targets … Presents a good-sized target over the middle and soft hands to ease the ball into his body … Has the body control to get to the off-target throws, especially doing a nice job down field of locking the ball in over his shoulders … Maintains concentration going for the pass in traffic, showing willingness to sacrifice his body to get to the pigskin … Shows good determination to get to the ball when running the seams and has enough athletic ability to get down field and be a threat on long routes … Athletic jumper with good body control, showing ability to frame off-target passes and make the tough catches with defenders draped all over him … Shows a solid leg base, knee bend and face-up determination when asked to block in the short area (more of a finesse blocker).
Negatives: Needs to add more bulk to his frame, one that can also use better muscle tone … Flashes some quickness off the snap (better when lined wide for longer routes), but he is not a sudden mover … Makes sharp cuts in his routes, but lacks explosion … Does not have the speed needed to consistently burst coming out of his breaks … Shows good blocking technique, but does not generate the ideal strength needed to prevent from getting run over by the larger, more physical defenders (gets tossed around quite a bit when trying to drive block or anchor) … Can jump for the ball, if needed, but needs to do a better job of timing his leaps … Must protect the ball better before heading up field (carries the ball too loose, resulting in fumbles).

AGILITY TESTS
4.73 in the 40-yard dash (indoor track) … 4.85 in the 40-yard dash (outdoors) … Bench presses 375 pounds … 465-pound squat … 336-pound power clean … 358-pound push press … 34-inch vertical jump … 34 ?-inch arm length … 9 ?-inch hands … Right-handed

Steelers sign tight end, release rookie
Tuesday, August 29, 2006

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers signed three-year veteran tight end Tim Euhus to a contract and have released rookie free agent tight end Isaac Smolko, the team announced today.

Euhus was released by the New Orleans Saints yesterday. He was originally drafted in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills out of Oregon State.

In 2005, Euhus appeared in 11 games for the Bills, making three starts. He finished with three receptions for 17 yards. He missed the first five games of the season with a shoulder injury. During his rookie year in 2004, Euhus played in 12 games before sustaining a season-ending knee injury. For his career, he has 14 catches for 115 yards with two touchdowns.

Smolko, a undrafted free agent rookie from Penn State, was signed by the Steelers in April. He appeared in all three preseason games for Pittsburgh and caught one pass, a one-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason opener.

WHO knows, TE is least of our few problems, maybe he has potential at another position, say OLB

I dont think J Dekker is going anywhere. But I am curious as to what we will see with Dan Kreider. He is a power house.

"They released quarterback Shane Boyd, giving rookie Omar Jacobs a shot at making the roster or at least becoming No. 3 on the practice squad. They released punter Mike Barr for the third consecutive summer, going with veteran Chris Gardocki for his 16th NFL season. They released rookie tight end Charles Davis, a fifth-round draft choice, and must decide between undrafted rookie Jon Dekker and newly acquired Tim Euhus as their third tight end, if they keep three.

An intriguing move to watch for today is whether the Houston Texans release veteran tight end Mark Bruener. If they do, the Steelers could move quickly to sign him.

Halfback Cedrick Humes, a seventh-round pick, also is out as are offensive guard Tim Brown, nose tackle Scott Paxson, defensive end Lee Vickers, wide receivers Walter Young and Lee Mays, linebacker Ronald Stanley and fullback Brandon Joe.

Linebacker Richard Seigler has a right foot injury and could be waived/injured. Veteran offensive tackle Barrett Brooks' season ended in the game Thursday when he sustained a torn quad in his right knee. He goes on injured reserve."

A couple of things stuck out to me. Maybe bringing back Mark Bruener and Barrett Brooks tore a quad in his right knee
