David Gettis Practicing Again

it all depends on if the game plan or cam can/will get him involved.

he's good enough to be on the roster but he'd still be behind smitty, lafell, and murphy. the fact that he isn't a returner isn't going to help him. we'll have two spots for returners and i don't see them putting adams away for long. they'll get him back in there soon enough.

the only spot he has a realistic chance of taking is AEs and i don't think they are going to cut ties with him.

i'd honestly be surprised if they kept him on the roster. they certainly don't need more WRs on the roster and i don't want to take anything away from any other position.

I like David Gettis but I feel like he going to have to show something simply amazing to stick around.

That's not that I even think this is the correct course of action - but they have receivers they claim to like. If he's not mind-blowingly good who do they cut bait with?

I liked Gettis has a rookie. But he hasn't played in what a year and a half. That includes not practicing to any real extent, no time with Cam; him coming in and doing much of anything is long shot.

If he plays anything like his Rookie season I don't see how he won't push Lafell for the #2 spot. His speed and size should take some pressure off of #89. Again, only if he returns to form.

I've been pulling for Gettis since the day we drafted him with extra interest... Idk why, I just saw a few games of his at Baylor and felt he had "it." I posted that he would make the roster and be a good player for us when we drafted him and he showed why that first year...

That being said, I'd be extremely shocked and pissed if they cut him. His size and speed, and the ability he has shown when healthy is a hard combination to find and he's still young with time to develop. I don't care how much they "like" one of the other guys. Outside of Smitty, Lafell, and Murphy, no spot should be guaranteed aside from maybe Pilares b/c he can play all over the field.

He had Jimmeh throwing it to him as a rookie, and still had a stellar year. I agree if he gets back to the same player he was before, he'll push LaFell for #2. He has good speed and good size. A healthy Gettis is definitely better than Murphy, Armanti, Pilares, and Adams.

if he plays anything like he did his rookie season, smith should be moved to the slot.
