Those knocking King's pass-catching ability are misled, I think. The guy has been easily our most consistent receiver at the TE position. He gets open, catches nearly everything thrown his way, and is a great red zone target. No, he doesn't have amazing YAC ability but to say that he is just a great blocker isn't telling the whole story. I think he would do just as well as the others in a more open offensive system, it's just that our offensive system in the past hasn't utilized the TE to receive very often. All that said, I wouldn't be surprised if he hit the road given the potential of Rosario and the fact that Barnidge and now Shockey are under contract.
