    TEs at Fullback at Training Camp

    I mentioned recently that they should look at this. Excerpt from Arians interview yesterday

    Q: Any specific changes? I saw a lot of tight end at fullback today.

    A: Last year we started with the three-TE stuff and we lost Jerame Tuman right away. You want to have those packages available. You keep throwing stuff at them and utilize guys who can play multiple positions to give the defense a different look.

    It just makes sense because we have a really good group of TEs.

    Would be interesting. As I have said many time in the past I'd love to see Miller (6'5"), Spaeth (6'7") and Boyd (6'8") in the red zone. I really do like the idea of a TE/FB and the flexibility that would provide.

    Does anyone remember who said this would happen?



    It's an obvious move to eliminate the need for Davis. If a TE can
    prove worthy of playing FB...bubye C.D. Like I also said before...you
    very well could see Russell at FB before the end of camp.
    2014 NFL Draft
    1) ​Darqueze Dennard-DB MSU
    2) Jordan Matthews-WR Vandy
    3) Chris Borland-ILB Wisconsin
    4) Caraun Reid, DT Princeton
    5) De'Anthony Thomas-RB Oregon
    5b) Ryan Carrethers-NT Arkansas State
    6) Jeff Janis-WR Saginow Valley State
    6b) Seantrel Henderson, OT MIami
    7) Colt Lyerla -TE Oregon

    Time to cue up the Twilight Zone theme now.

    As much as many want to bash Arians I really like the direction I see this offense going.

    Isn't praise for Arians from Steeler fans one of the signs of the apocalypse?

    I'll be keeping my eyes open for the subsequent plague of locusts...
