Default Broncos TE Scheffler on board with team’s plan

When the Broncos traded Jay Cutler to the Bears in April, some people thought the QB’s best friend on the team, TE Tony Scheffler, also might want a one-way ticket out of Denver.

But Scheffler was at the Broncos’ minicamp last week, and according to the Denver Post, he sat down with his new coach, Josh McDaniels, to discuss the offseason changes:

“I didn’t need to hear anything,” Scheffler said. “This is the NFL. You can’t have feelings. You kind of have to have water off a duck’s back. You can’t have hurt feelings or you’ll get left behind in a hurry. You’ve got to move forward to the next day.”
McDaniels praised Scheffler’s work so far in the offseason and stressed to the Post that the team is ready to move on with the quarterbacks currently on its roster:

“I’m sure there were quite a few players who had relationships with Jay, and they’ve done a great job of saying, ‘You know what? This is our team now, and these are our quarterbacks.’ He’s working his butt off to get better with each one of them. He’s making a good impression on them, and I hope they’re making a good impression on him.”
Scheffler, 26, had 40 receptions last season and averaged a career-high 16.1 yards per catch.

Great stuff. It's all about Sheffler staying on the field, now. No question McD will find ways to utilize his skills.

Not sure why I feel this way, but after hearing the trade rumors and reading these articles, it seems to me like McDaniels may have underestimated what a physical freak Scheffler was. Then, when he saw him on the field, he got super-excited about what he can do with him.

The other possibility is that the news writers and rumor-mongers had no idea what they were talking about.

He has to otherwise Il Duce will convince Pat to find some reason to banish him to another planet. Or, then again, they might just try to eradicate him from existence.
