    He doesn't want any more 2-3 TE sets. The coaches cannot be tempted to use multiple TE's if there is only Heath on the roster.

    Does he want Ben standing up? I think this signing is more about blocking and pass protection than receptions. We all know that Johnson is terrible blocking as either a TE or quasi-FB. Saunders is still an unknown. Pope will contribute in the red zone but really he will be able to help both Gilbert and Colon at OT on the edges with his blocking abilities.

    I think Saunders is about to make a name for himself as a receiving TE this year in training camp. I think Johnson is out.

    I believe Pope was a 1st round pick for the Cardinals in 2006 or 2007. Does anybody know what year he was drafted? I like the signing as well!!!

    I would think that Pope replaces Wes Saunders. Pope is too tall for H-back duties so he won't take David Johnson's job. Hopefully the kid from WVU beats out David Johnson or get a real FB.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Thought I read somewhere that he was a third-rounder in 2006. Could be wrong, though.

    Following article says that Pope graded out very poorly in run blocking and racked up 10 penalties. Yuck.

    Wow ... that doesn't sound very good. We might as well stick with DJ because I don't think he has had that many penalties called on him.
