Walker IS a better blocker. Not close. I think with our awful O-Line, A TE like Walker would be amazing. Both the run and passing game would improve a lot if he is used right. He needs to work on his hands but he has good speed and gets open a lot and can go up and catch it. Even still he's much better overall than Cook at this point.


I think Walker would be a better fit, but no way is Walker the better player. Cook is a beast. Just been dealing with poor plays at QB.

Put him with Cam and it's gonna be wild!

If WR can't address a no.2 WR through FA or the Draft, we better get another TE in this offense (Cook, Walker, etc)

IMO, another quality TE is not only a cheaper option than WR, it is also a better fit for this offense. We cannot afford a WR that is better than what we have. We can however, afford a TE that fills a need.

Olsen, Cook, Smitty, and Lafell. Yeah, I like that group. And you can still run the ball. Win/win.

I don't see us doing a lot, but Canty seems very likely and I would really like him on our front four.

Cook and Canty (If he stays healthy) would be excellent pick-ups. They would would markedly lessen our need to reach for so-so DT or WR in the draft. Both would probably have a similar impact as the Olsen signing if we could get them to play anywhere near their potential. I wouldn't necessarily be girlie giddy, but I would definitely give a "Hell, yeah!"

I wouldn't mind Walker. You're right in that he's probably the better blocker but my only problem with him is that he drops a lot of balls.

I'd prefer Cook because he's a better vertical threat and a much bigger target (6-5 compared to 6-0). Both would bring a lot of value though.

Dustin Keller is another guy I wouldn't mind but he might be out of our price range.

I have had another TE on the radar for a while now, i wouldn't be upset if we drafted the guy out of Notre Dame or Stanford. They are great receivers period. TEs are match up nightmares.
