Is it just me or does Virgil Green seem like a receiver? I feel like he could be a big dominant possession receiver kind of guy, he's pretty fast right?

Blazing fast for a TE. Hope he sticks.

Hard to say right now. The team sure has a bunch of TE's competing, and at least one of them has to be a blocking specialist. They spent money on Rosario as Fox's guy (and Fells), drafted Julius ahead of Green. I guess we have to wait and see. Gronk got a pass thrown to him that he didn't catch, so they're all getting some looks. There's a couple TE's that will be cut, maybe he does make the PS since he's a rookie.

He's got potential, that's for sure. I hope they at least stick him on the PS.

I kind of meant take him away from TE and put him out wide as a WR, I am pretty confident Julius Thomas can take on the receiving TE role without too much trouble.

sounds like Denver does not think he will clear waivers.
Most likely Denver will keep 4 TE and deactivate him every game

The Anderson signing still makes me curious due to our TE's potential to shift to WR and our scheme's lack of 4-5 receiver packages.

What's Virgil's time for being stabbed by a girlfriend or flying hand first through a TV?

true, but anderson upgraded the roster compared to having someone else at #5, hell he might even be the #4 guy with willis at 5. i doubt fox will split any of the WR out wide, did he do that in carolina? fox seems like a guy that his TE need to be able to block first and foremost.

A lot of guys can be amazing athletes and then become absolutely worthless the second pads and a helmet come on.

Backup slot guy for Royal, and if you think McCoy isn't going to use the one really good thing McDaniels brought to Denver (an intricate and incredibly successful passing scheme) you're crazy.

We aren't going to just run with 2 WRs all the time and go run, run, pass. McCoy is going to use a run first attack but when we do pass it won't be the boring ass **** they used in Carolina. It'll be much more like McDaniels' scheme and will probably take a lot of shots down field to Lloyd.

A powerful running game paired with a game breaking passing attack is a recipe for success if we can get our defense up to or above league average.

A lot of these borderline players 4th TE, 6th WR etc., will make the team or get cut based on their abilities to play special teams.

Virgil Green has a lot of raw athletic ability and upside, so I doubt he would clear waivers. I'm betting that we keep 4 TE's on the roster.

Anderson is one of those smart guys that finds the seam in the zone, much like Rod Smith used to do. Decker may be that kind of WR also, a WR that adjusts his route to the open area and that's a QB's best friend.

With DThomas being injured, it's interesting to perhaps move Green to WR. Make Green lose some weight and move him to WR and see what happens...

While Virgil Green may look like he could play WR because of his speed you've got to keep in mind that he may not have the fluidity and route-running to make it work. All the same he's a nightmare of a mismatch for any DB and virtually no LBs could keep up with him. So it might work. He'd likely be the biggest WR in the league if they did transition him, which would be interesting to see.

At least his terrible blocking would no longer be a big deal...

Why would you make him lose weight? He's fast enough for a possession receiver right now, and what would make him stand out as a WR is his speed/size combination.

If he loses some weight it will take some pressure off his joints, like his knees and ankles, etc. It will also help him increase his speed and his ability to break on routes, etc. He doesn't need to be a 250lbs WR. I'd rather he be a 230lbs WR who has breakaway speed and can turn on a dime.

i have said that since Thomas started tearing it up in camp. he is bigger than both Thomas is and Marshall was with the same speed, a better vertical and good hands. work on his route running and he is a potential beast at WR

Gronk has been dropping them all through camp too. How he and Nate Jones are still on the team are beyond me.

He's a TE and will be a very good one. That's my prediction.

I think we keep:

Fells
Quinn
Thomas
Green

I think Gront and Rosario are gone. You would take a chance with Green clearing waivers and he'll be cheaper than Rosario. Fells and Quinn will be the blocking TE's and Thomas and Green the receiving TE's.
