only way we don't re-sign shockey is if someone better comes along.

I'd like Shockey to stay, but not at $4 mil, if that's true.

Shockey is a must re-sign! Not sure why we don't cut Ben Hartsock?

Can't afford to do this.

That would give you Olsen, Shocket, Barnidge, and Hartsock....yes, Hartsock stays because of his play at H Back.

Can't afford to carry 4 TE's.

You can if you have a kicker that can punt :). We'll see about that 1 though.

TE's are valuable on ST's though, I dont see the harm in 4 of them. Especially not in an offense that revolves around them.

Even if Shockey leaves, I'm confident Chud can get creative to keep firepower on the field. DWill, Smitty, Gettis/Lafell, Olsen at their normal positions... then Stew at Slotback. He's got the skill set and it would add another dimension that teams won't know how to defend.

I think Shockey did good for us last year...Him and Olsen are a good combo.

Since olsen and shockey were added to the roster last year our tight end play has been better than ever before. at least since wesley walls

I have faith in Barnidge. I still wouldn't mind a TE in the late rounds or a FA TE but I believe Barnidge has a big future with Chud here and I think the front office agrees because they extended Barnidge two years while he was on IR.

I'm hopeful for Barnidge to be a solid player. I wouldn't put any money on it, of course - but I do think he'll turn out ok.

There's that voice in the back of my head saying that maybe he looked good only because of the crap Tight Ends we'd had during the Fox years.

Because he is your blocking TE and FB. You need that on this team.

Has more to do with the offense that we ran last year.

Don't get me wrong, I like Shockey. I woudl like to have him back....but not at $4M per season.

His stats last year were not world beater....they were average.

37 catches for 450 yards....4 TD's.
