I think Jacoby is a great backup but despite playing above average football as a starter in his first 7 games, he stunk it up a lot in the last half of the season. He isn't the answer, hence the Rivers signing. I would part ways with Jacoby and move Kelly in as the backup. I say that because I feel like Jacoby after being the starter can't like the fact we got Rivers. I could be wrong but after giving the keys to the team then forced to go back to second fiddle has to bother him IMO. I am just afraid it could even cause locker room problems keeping Jacoby because there are guys on that team that look at him as a leader. Rivers may be like I am the man, on and on. You guys get my point.
Once a person gets past 32 they are usually on the downside of their career. Gates will be 40 by the time the season starts. I prefer he stays retired and we draft a TE. We don’t have a TE that we drafted on the team so it would be good to draft talent into this position.
