From Coach Tomlin's PC yesterday:
"Bruce Arians has said he’s a three-tight end guy. Is that still the case?
We’ve got some schematic flexibility to fit what we believe our strengths are. Ideally, you’d like to have a third tight end. We’ve got some candidates and we’ll be watching those guys closely. But that’s a position that’s still in development.
Might Max (Starks) play some tight end?
Yes, and of course he did that for us some last year. "
Would seem to make sense since the 3rd TE seems to be the blocking TE. Having Starks back up at both Tackle positions plus TE is definitely positional flexibility.
Also saves a roster spot which is always good. I hope we sign Boyd back as he gets healthy.
