The Patriots don’t seem to have much at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski — Michael Hoomanawanui and undrafted rookies Justin Jones and Asa Watson — but watch out for LaFell playing the “Hernandez” role. “He played all of our wide receiver positions, plus he knew the tight end position,” his former coach, Ron Rivera, told me in March. LaFell was also a “want-to” blocker in Carolina, meaning he doesn’t mind getting physical in the run game. Patriots fans, meet your new Swiss Army Knife.

He's gonna have like 900 yards and 8 TDs and this board will melt down.

his blocking>catching.... but his weight  will get him pushed around. this must be a camp solution. if not, our d line would totally flatten him.

LEAVES FRIENDS AND TEAM THAT DRAFTED HIM AND GAVE HIM TONS OF OPPORTUNITIES TO BE A NUMBER ONE RECEIVER BECAUSE THE MONEY WASN'T RIGHT.


JOINS TEAM WITH WINDOW CLOSING TO BE A 4TH RECEIVER/THIRD STRING TIGHT END.

Because moving a guy to TE when he couldn't get separation from linebackers is a good idea...
