Roster moves 9/22/20 / Hentges returns (MERGED)

I was bummed to lose him last year and was hoping we'd get him back. I can easily see him replacing Green or Togiai on the active roster after a week or so (depending on how long Doyle and/or Burton are out).

Glad to see Hentges back in the fold. He was to be Doyle's replacement before they resigned Jack. Kid can really block and had surprisingly good hands. Proved that at the Redskins

With Paris lost for the season, DeMichael Harris should be considered to play the slot. DeMichael Harris has sprinter speed and his college highlights is filled with elusiveness. His field speed is amazing.

I wouldn't necessarily call Hentges "Doyle's replacement". Kid was a UDFA from Alabama who looked decent in TC and preseason last year who we ended up cutting. I doubt they bring another WR to the active roster right now, they had 7 going into the last game and i believe the squad we have now is more then capable. If we are just trying to fill the slot role then i believe TY should take that role back or let Hines take over the gimmick stuff Campbell was to be doing.

Some brief info on Ethan Wolf via a BR 2018 Draft article:

 

POSITIVES

—Good size and above-average athlete (6'6", 258 pounds).

—Four-year starter for Tennessee.

—Can high-point the football and scoop shoelace balls.

—Tracks the ball and makes body adjustments for a big tight end.

—Good strike and arm extension in blocking.

NEGATIVES

—Inconsistent play blocking and route running.

—Needs to use his size more to his advantage, as he plays smaller than he is.

—Defenders separate ball from him over the middle.

—Lacks burst out of breaks.

—Limited route tree at Tennessee. Worked the flats or hit the seam.

OVERALL

Wolf is a good prospect who hasn't established himself in the draft process. He was a four-year starter at Tennessee, but he never broke out or wowed scouts with what he could do on the field. While he has late-round potential, he'll need to play to his strengths in camp.

GRADE: 5.00 (Priority Free Agent)

PRO PLAYER COMPARISON: Troy Niklas, New England Patriots

Doyle was an UDFA by the Titans and waiver wire claim by the Colts before blossoming into the Doyle we know. There is no reason Hentges can't do the same.

While I 100% agree, the op was making it sound like he was brought in for insurance if Doyle wasnt resigned which is simply not true. You don't take a shot at a complete unknown UDFA who hasn't played a snap to replace a Pro Bowler regardless of how he got to the point he is now.

I understand your stance, however, he did catch 8 balls for 103 yards and a TD for the Redskins last season after making our opening day 53-man roster. He was usually pretty strongly compared to Doyle last year and still could be a viable in-line blocker with good hands and can run the underneath routes.

 

We shall see though.

I.R. is a 3 week thing this season dont forget so getting placed there doesnt mean much.  

 

7 TE's, Noah played a ton last week 51% of the snaps, mainly blocking and as a decoy. I'm thinking bringing more in may mean Burton isnt coming back as soon as we hoped and thought.  If Hentes can hold off Wolfe and pass F Green and than catch Noah possible #2 role down the line.  3 big IF'S but not impossible.

    • Packers lost first, and it was ugly. Bucs' D better than you give them credit for. Brady seems like landed in a good situation, with defensive and offensive support. 
    • I'm in this camp.    I don't really hate any of them, but they all have holes and are inconsistent. Some are too fan boy, some don't know the game well enough, some regurgitate, some are high light kings, some are just way off the mark.   Case in point. I like some of what Hicks does. Then this week though he comes out with an article pumping up Okereke. Yes, Oke's last game was improved, but he's been pretty bad for the most part this year. One or two decent games doesn't erase 4 bad ones and picking out highlights doesn't erase the really ugly plays that are ignored. I do agree he's probably better in man than zone.    Anyway, the inconsistency of the some of these guys drive me nuts. And I hate fanboys and highlight kings.
    • I see him taking the place of Parris Campbell. He has the speed and gets great seperation and hands. He shows confidence and in his own words, " he belongs ". Doesn't hurt that Phil Rivers mentioned him during the Post Game interview.  Having been a RB means he has the strength to get some good YAC. 
    • Hmm, did Yannick wear out his welcome in Minny already?
    • I personally don't care if he loves the game or not.  He can friggin sling it.   That love of the game stuff is not real to me.  If he came back, it would be for one of two reasons.  1.  he loves the game  2. He wants the money   Either of these reasons should yield good football.
