Shockey, Barnidge currently have contracts.

King, Rosario have been offered contracts.

If both King and Rosario sign, someone has to go.

IMO, because of Barnidge being a special teams beast, he stays. So it's down to Rosario or King. Hopefully King signs elsewhere because I am excited to see what Rosario can do in an actual NFL offense.

I think it's a given by this point that King is gone, if not Rosario too, despite the tenders. They can be pulled.

I actually think Rosario can be a star in Chud's offense if we re-sign him.

King gets the boot. He is a horrible pass catching TE where as Rosario is multi-talented and Barnidge seems to be more of what Rivera and Chud are looking for

I would think Fox would want King over there in Denver. He is the ideal Fox player. Veteran, decent at everything, great at nothing, isn't a risk.

Maybe they tendered King so they can get a 6th or 7th round pick outta fox for him :)

Zod, you are around the team and know the players personally (I assume). I go to OTAs and Spartanburg once a year. My observation about King is that he is a leader. I also think everyone here should not discount the fact that he is a (Y) "hand in the dirt beside the tackle" blocker.

I do not know how important that is now (opposed to a TE who can split out, motion into block, or h back lead block). Frankly, I do not know if Shockey isn't better than King on the LOS..

Rosario is a player. Barnidge will be if given the opportunity, I think. Shockey will probably

when you have check down happy qb's you fill the stable with TE's, and RB's who can catch and block. Variety one way or the other to keep the defense guessing does not hurt either. I think this is just part of Clausen's development. Give him big sure-handed targets on the short routes and run the poo outta 4 WR's until he gets comfortable enough to air one out.
