I think he'll finally get the development he needs now. He needs an offseason with a team where there's no "package." He just works on the offense as a backup.

He has the physical gifts to play TE. That he won't tells me all I need to know about how dedicated he is to being an NFL player.
Goodbye, Timmeh. Enjoy your ministry.
