From my recollection he was an asset in run blocking and more so in the pass catching department, but average in pass protection. All that being said, I would assume he would command a higher price tag than WJ.... And we need to save as much $ as possible. I say pass...even though we are a little thin @ FB. I would rather get creative and put Legs in there in goal line packages.
    Yes, I liked him coming out too. So if we do get him, I'd be happy to see it. That being said, as NJ-STEELER sorta said, he's not a thumper in a classic sense. He is a FB more by necessity than by fit. IOW, he's slow (by NFL standards), he's not nifty, just tough. His body even, isn't a FB thick, stout Lorenzo Neal-ish body. A smaller framed guy like him can't play the position for long.

    Yeah. I agree

    Id rather go with Johnson then Hester. At his size he should be able to knock Into some defenders

    BTW, interesting piece about your boys. Probably more to this than it written. Any more insight ?

    Speculation on the Pats board that I read is that the front office screwed up, and that Demps should be the R/IR guy instead of Shiancoe.

    My guess is that since Demps couldn't get through two pre-season games without getting dinged up, they want him to put on some muscle. And with the offense being TE-centric, they want the option of getting Shiancoe back this year as the third TE.

    Sounds reasonable to protect him at bit since he's had little football work for a while. Demps likely to be another excellent asset for your offense. Welker was the steal of the the decade. Hope for our interests we don't find Demps to be another one.
