    By all means, bringing him in for a look can't hurt.

    I am a bit surprised at the news. Coming out of school everyone seemed to think Schmitt was a prototypical FB who could also catch much like John L Williams.

    Wow...Walter Jones too. Guess injuries caught up to the big fella. Quite a career.

    I agree that Schmitt is worth a look (he is kind of the combo FB that Arians seems to like, as opposed to a solely blocking FB like Kreider or Lester).

    Yes. He played TE at WVU also so they could keep him on the field.

    I can't believe that you guys used the words Fullback and Arians in the same sentence....

    I think if he clears waivers we might see it. I'm all for it!

    I would have drafted him out of WVa. he is a better back up option than Frank Summer and Issac "Preseason hero" Redman. I really hope they bring him in.
