Really no need for Shockey with all the weapons we have now. Barny will do just fine as the #2 guy.

i would like for them to bring shockey back, but he isn't necessary.

quite a few have said this is likely what is happening but then there are those that scoffed and said, "right, a 5'9 TE? lol ursodumb" or whatever.

tolbert isn't here to play TE, tho he is lining up as one at times. it's the role shockey played, not the position. extra blocker for cam or the ball carrier and extra target. sure, he loses a little in height, but i think he might also have an advantage in being so short because he's hard to keep an eye on. the extra bonus of him being a solid ball carrier himself makes this an upgrade on the roster spot, imo.

If the plan all a long was to not reisign Shockey why didnt RR or Hearney come out and say so? Why the mystery?


I doubt he's implying that was their intention all along.. Apparently Shockey has made it clear to them he won't sign for less than he's asking.

people wondering where shockey's targets will go should probably look no further than tolbert. i think he'll be getting the lions share of them and barney will probably get the remnants. i see him (barnidge) only being used situationally anyway. he'll be good at what he does, but his PT will be far more limited than tolbert's.
