Brissett is not going anywhere until Luck can prove he is on not made of glass. We have seen what? 2 preseason games of limited action from Kelly, character issues as well and people want to pencil him in already.
MAC is a really good blocking tight end first and foremost and his first year you have to kind of give a caveat because he was coming out of basketball. He's got more NFL game experience than Hentges and I think he's got more power, height, and size. He's more developed as a receiver by all accounts. It's close but I think I'd still go with my boy MAC. Everything Hentges has youve already got that with Jack Doyle.
What has MAC actually done vs what his perceived potential? Idk, we just have two guys with speed and height so does he provide more blocking abilities than Hentges? Also, he would be the replacement to EE, so the future planning would be, sign MAC instead of EE and also signing JD not keeping Hentges. Depends on how the team plans on spending money for this position.
