Man, put him at OLB/DE and let's see what havoc he can cause. We need pass rush help not more TEs that won't see the field.

I'd love to see what he can do. Too bad we won't see him unless someone gets hurt.

well, Dixon wasnt gonna get any playing time, might as well have a player that can play two positions instead of just one.

Two positions... noone is a two way player in the NFL anymore... especially not on the OL/DL. I mean goaline packages sure... a Bill Billicheck... mad scientist scheme... sure but really.

We dont need a TE... and if we are going to bring in a DE -id rather us bring in a true DE... not some hybrid experiment... we already have Kindle on the PS and MacAdoo on the IR... idk

Cant figure this one out... wonder who he is related to???

What the deal with Dixon... he looked great when he played against us...

He gets passed on in Pittsburgh for Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich.
Batch is like 107 years old and the Sqeelers didnt trust him to play at all when Ben could barley move in the playoffs vs denver

Leftwich cant stay healthy... and has been injured more then anyone in recent memory...
Dixon played well but got passed on in favor of these two???

then he comes here... which noone expected him to beat out Flacco or Tyrod... but it is nice to pick his brain for the hated sqeeler games coming up!

But I though for sure talented enough to stick around on the PS??? maybe its just not a postion of need but we let him go for another postion that we dont need help with???

Something else is going on with this guy?

You want a guess? We only had 3 TEs on the roster and we probably needed another one for practicing for teams that use 2 TEs regularly.

IDK...we can place any WR (STREETER) in at TE just to give us a look? We seem to be bringing in some PATs IDHEGBO- this cat- I thought we brought one more in)?

WE should have an inside track on the PATS
the TEXANS and the sqeelers... if we are just using them for info puproses...

but is that looking to far ahead???

I wonder if he's really worth the roster spot. He's like Sergio Kindle I just don't know what to think of him. I wish I knew more about football so I knew who was worth what. I hope he's good enough to impact the team though! As far as I'm concerned, go Reed!
