Was he not injured to begin with? Hence why he was let go by the Giants and then picked up by the Pats only to be let go again? IF he is not 100% I do not see the point in trying to acquire his services. The year is almost gone too.

Hartsock is our best blocking TE by far.

 

That isn't saying much, unfortunately. Wouldn't it be nice to have a guy who could block, and catch a pass once in a blue moon?

Know what? fug Hartsock. He isn't even great at blocking anyway. In today's league, if you're 1 dimensional it better be pass catching. Hartsock can't catch poo. We need an upgrade.

Cut Brockel instead. With Stewie and Barner getting healthy, that's a full backfield. Tolbert and Hartsock could take Brockel's FB reps.

I'd say that makes more sense.

I like Brockel, but if (IF) Ballard can be what it looked like he was going to be, no contest.

Probably makes sense to pay attention to the giants fans in that thread. the on that begins with "No thanks" tells you a bit. Sometimes guys get a little nudge because of the system theyre in and it sounds like this guy benefited from that.

If you sign him, do you cut Ben Hartsock, Brandon Williams, or someone else?

(don't everyone say Fua; Dwan is still hurt)

I fail to see your logic behind the caveat there. Ballard could provide as much at DT as Fua and still be the 2nd TE.
