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.

Harstock is one of the best run blocking TE in the league and plays a solid portion of our snaps, ditching him would result in our running blocking/ game( the only consistently good thing on our offense) to suffer. Not worth it.

What about Brockel?

If he's healthy, I'd take Ballard and cut Brandon Williams. Williams was a star during camp but he hasn't shown anything during the season so far. I don't remember the rule on games played/practice squad eligibility, but we might be able to even squeeze Williams back on to it.

Yes, this is right down my alley. Cam needs more receiving threats, particularly at tight end because it can be an effective safety valve when things get hot.  Don't know who I would drop, but Armond Smith, Brockel, or even Hartsock come to mind.

Williams has a lot of potential, and we would be remiss to give up on him so easily. It's not like basketball players don't have a history of excellence at the position. Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas are good indicators of the potential for ballers at the position.  As long as Williams is learning the intricacies of the position, and has the physical skill set and mental acuity to succeed, then I say continue his development.  I know that Graham and Thomas didn't really break out until their second years.
