Default Jeremy Shockey

Anyone interested in bringing him in as a pass catching threat.

41 receptions, 408 receiving yards and 3 TDs last season.

and that was his worst season as a pro

bring him in and we can cross receiving TE off the list of needs for the team.

Shockey would be interesting for Tebow. Never seen Kyle hit the TE consistently enough to be sure for him. (to be fair, that's as much on the TEs as on Kyle).

The guy seems like he's injured all the time, but we do desperately need a pass catching TE.

he averages 14 games a season. if he can get us 3-4 catches a game, it opens up the offense and provides Tebow a nice safety valve. A young QBs best friend is always a strong running game and a good receiving TE.

Would prefer Zach Miller (if he isn't franchised) or Owen Daniels. Would also like Kyle Rudolph from Notre Dame if he is there with our second 2nd round pick. However, I would not be opposed to signing Shockey to an affordable deal. We need a TE that doesn't have stone hands. Especially with a young QB, he needs that safety valve to check down to on 3rd downs. Tight End is a necessary upgrade.

I think in all fairness, a pass catching TE was not a big component of the McDaniels plan. It's just not a major focus like some other NFL offenses out there. No big FB presence, no "star" pass catching TE.

It's my opinion that we would do well to build the team around Tebow's strengths. Spend a little time and effort re-creating the Florida spread scheme. It will be interesting to see what Mike McCoy brings to the table now that he has had some experience with two very different systems. He had the two headed running attack + deep threat going at Carolina, and now he has had a good dose of the Mcdaniels system.

It will be interesting to see how they move forward with running backs, that might tell us a little about which way he is leaning.

I, for one, think a fast pass catching TE is a growing QB's number one target. It would be nice to have that as an option.

Great blocker, but his hands were total crap this year. Not just bad, epic bad. His receiving ineptitude could have even cost us a game this year.

Keep Graham for blocking, develop a young pass catching threat for the future.

The problem with Graham is that he will be making over $4 million this season. Way too much for a blocking tight end. To stay, he has to take a pay cut. Otherwise we cut our ties and use that money on a more complete tight end that can help in the passing game. A couple options in free agency, a couple options in the draft.

Any one have a gif of him back with New York when he started celebrating right before an OT field goal was missed and ended up losing the game?

I agree we need a Tight End but I would not be surprised if Quinn becomes a little better than people think.

we need TE's but Shockey not high on my list. We sort of need less risk with our signings right now. Unless its bargain basement which Shockey probably won't be.

Kevin Boss is also a free agent and could be worth a look
