  • What do you guys think about the 'Hawks pickin' up Martelluss Bennett as our 2nd TE?

    I think he'd definitely help in the redzone, and he's damn hard to defend against!

    Oh, and he's about a million times better than brick-hands McCoy! :thfight7:

  • You must not have seen that article about McCoy and his stats showing him making the best of his opportunities. He has been doing better catching the balls as of late. Now he needs to breakout like a mad man taking names and kickin ass. I'd say if he doesn't then we really need to think of other options.

  • Am I missing something? Did McCoy have an issue with the drops this season? I don't recall that being a problem this past season. We gave him a good ass QB and he balled out at times.

  • He's just as inconsistent as McCoy, even the Coyboys didn't want him back. McCoy struggled a little at the end of the season but was solid for the most part, I say we get another TE in the mid rounds of the draft

    Like Vance McDonald. He'd be an upgrade over McCoy, imo.

  • I dont understand the desire for another tight end. Imo, tight end is one of the more solid and deep positions on our team, and they're all pretty young.

    I'd stick with Miller, McCoy, McGrath and Morrah for this year and try to add either Colt Lyerla or Austin Sefarian Jenkins next year.

  • Bennett looked pretty damn good this year. I wouldn't say we're in desperate need of someone like him, but this roster is deep enough to be able to afford some luxuries, if the price isn't bad.

    I respectfully disagree, and I'd be surprised if PC & JS didn't too. I think McCoy is an average #2 TE. I think they rely so heavily on 2 TE sets that have two #1 TE's would make sense for us. With the FA TE's available and the TE class this year there are a ton of great options to bring something "different" or "special" to the team. Bennett cause mismatch issues and was somewhat successful as a #1 TE, I'd say he is bottom 1/3 but he is still a much bigger receiving threat than McCoy was. Bennett had some drop issues but it seems most super athletic TE's (Bennett, Cook, Finley, Davis and others) have all had some issues with drops. If they didn't the'd be the elite.

    I'd be in for signing him just as I want some veteran DL brought in. If we can get our roster set before the draft we will have the freedom to do whatever we want and pick up the guys who provide the most value.

  • I wouldn't mind a upgrade at TE but i would rather see money and draft picks spent on DT,DE,WR and LB before we go out and grab a backup TE. Plus a think McCoy is only going to get better with time.

    Absolutely agree! Bennett causes HUGE problems for the defense. I think he'd work out perfectly for our 2 TE sets, especially in the redzone!

  • he was my favorite TE coming out of the draft that year and never came close to reaching his potential until last year. TE is not a big need, Id take him if he was cheap. I Think Mccoy is fixing to have a breakout year.

  • If we go the FA route, I'd only want a cheaper pass catching first guy, ie Fred Davis or Jared Cook. Assuming one of their prices actually falls, I don't think paying a lot for one is a good route when we already pay Miller so much and have McCoy who is coming into his own in my opinion.

    Otherwise I'd be happy adding a pass catching joker style TE anywhere in the draft or a mid-later round more well rounded blocking type one, like say Travis Kelce. I think we could use a third one to at least compete with McGrath/Morrah.

    Fred Davis and Jared Cook were both franchised last year and will probably be again, they wont come cheap.

  • Yes, he had a good year last year. I think he costs a bit. I'd like him, and he fits, but I think he'd cost us too much.

    Here's a curveball: sounds like the Viqueens might release Carlson. Would we take him back as a 2nd TE for cheap ? And he would come cheap. Blocks better than McCoy that's for sure.

  • Rather Bennett over Carlson, but Cook or Davis would be nice too. I think Davis would be the cheapest coming off of surgery. I could see a 3 year 18mil with 10mil guaranteed as reasonable for any of those guys, they will be looking for more but if the don't find it we can make them fit for at least 1 year maybe 2 then cut them if they don't max out their potential. I'd rather get DL help through FA than TE but I don't want us to sit on the sidelines and not improve our team. SF and STL have too many high draft picks to think they won't find some body's to drastically improve they teams. We have some ammo but we need to make smart decisions and bring in a few strategic pieces as well. Would I be happy if we got Bennett? Yes. Do I hope we get him? Not really, Only if he is the cheapest of the group of good FA TE's and we don;t intend to draft one in the first four round. Otherwise I'd rather use the draft or sign a cheaper guy who would bring more to the #2 spot than McCoy and even step in for Miller if he gets another concussion. He could be one more bad concussion away from ending his career I think he has had 3 now and that is getting up there.

  • You know what they call a Martellus Bennett in Paris?

    They don't call him a tight end?

    No, man, they got soccer. They don't know what the **** a tight end is.

  • If Miller get injured or is out for an extended period our Offense will struggle. My opinion for the most important/critical players to our offense with the roster we have now.

    1. Russell Wilson
    2. Russell Okung
    3. Zach Miller
    4. Sidney Rice
    5. Max Unger
    6. Marshawn Lynch

    The drop off if one of these players gets hurt is quite significant. Now Flynn is a solid backup, but I don't see him leading us to 2 victories, on the road, in the playoffs.

    Okung is the anchor on our OL and he protects our teams most valuable asset in Wilson. Omylie steped in admirably when he had too but for a long period of time it would be an extreme blow to our offense.

    Zach Miller allows this team so much freedom in the run game, he blocks like a guard and catches like a WR. Without him i could see or run game drop off quite a bit and our WR's would also suffer for the respect showed to Miller up the middle.

    Rice would be a big hit, we currently dont have a big body to replace him and he provides the leadership to our WR corps.

    Unger would be hard to replace and has consistently improved to the point of being voted to the Pro Bowl

    Lynch is probably top 3 best on offense but RB's are easier to replace and if Turbin had to play 2 or 3 full games I wouldnt freak out, I think he might actually have better break away speed. Soo many time this year he was a hair away from breaking a big big gain and got tripped up
