I’m not so sure about that. 

 

You don't get rid of weapons for your young QB. That would be a bad move for Herbert.

If the Eagles are targeting him, can we re-do Ertz's contract and get him for a 4th rounder?

I would think if they landed Henry they would just cut Ertz, no?

That would be my thought. They'd try to get something for him, but most teams would probably just wait for him to be cut. They're in cap trouble and need to trim some contracts.

I feel like Henry and Doyle are the same character haha 

I mean, they're roughly the same height/weight (about 6'5", 250), but Henry has longer arms and ran a 4.72 40 vs Doyle's 4.91.

If that is the case, dangle a 6th rounder and see if they bite. :)

I think Henry is definitely a bigger threat to stretch the field than Doyle.  Both big guys, both can catch and block -- but like you pointed out, Henry's got a bigger wingspan and is significantly faster than Doyle.

Here's a quote from Irsay from Colts.com front page: "On where he wants to see improvements/additions outside of quarterback: "I think we need another one or two big playmakers on offense at tight end or wide receiver. I think we have a real interesting mix there. It's amazing when you see 87 (Travis Kelce) and 10 (Tyreek Hill) in Kansas City, the things they do and that sort of thing. It's remarkable. I think we're again, looking offensively for a couple more playmakers.""

Jack Doyle is Steve Rogers, Hunter Henry is Captain America.

Chargers will just tag him again

 

They have $23m cap space, tagging him is about $10m. I don't see that happening.

I'd be fine if we could sign Mo for fairly cheap and draft a late round TE or sign an undrafted free agent.  

MAC isn't going to be the guy.  And Doyle never was.  He's a nice chain mover, but not a playmaker.

 

We do need an Ebron type, without the drama and baggage.  It'll take more capital than what you suggest, IMO.

Reich never really gave Mo the chance he deserved.   He played great in the limited action he seen on the field.   Good hands, good blocker and has the size.

He can do more, but I don't think Mo will ever be the Ertz/Henry player Frank is looking for.  He has a better chance at getting more PT by filling Doyle's spot in a year,  JMO.

You may be right.    I just still think he has that diamond in the rough quality going for him.  After the second game of the season when he was targeted 6 times and caught 5 for 111 yards, he was not targeted much in other games. 

I would also welcome Henry if we didn't have to pay too much.   He's probably looking for his career pay day.

Doesn't mean they can't tag him til they work out an extension

He’s not been overly impressive after his injury that caused him to miss 2018. He had potential but hasn’t lived up to it, even in the Rivers’ offense that loved to target the TE. It would be a big meh for me and I hope we wouldn’t get into a bidding war to get him. Much rather get into one for Kenny Golladay since Stanford likes him so much.

But it seems like most want that 6'4" WR that can run like the wind? 

Cole Beasley (5'8") type player would be fine with me.

I don’t feel like we use tight ends in a dedicated enough fashion to go out and spend a ton on Henry. I mean Rivers throws to TEs more than most other QBs, but Doyle, Burton, and Mo were never really featured as a part of the offense, and all ended up with very pedestrian numbers. Mo led the way with 31 catches for 394 yards. Doyle and Burton finished with 23 and 28 catches for just 250 yards. 
 

I just don’t want to see us sign him to a big contract and then he gets lost in the hodgepodge of this offense where we don’t actually try to take advantage of his skill set.

Both Bama receivers have a Marvin level of potential but we have no chance of getting either, especially after we use our first for Stafford. I don’t think we have to draft one high either. Robinson or Golladay has to be a target in free agency in my opinion.

I agree, but I think its because we don't have that TE on the roster.  "Frank" used the TE a lot when we had Ebron.  Henry is close to that, and I don't think there is that type in the draft where we'd want to pick one.  

 

Freiermuth is rated highly, but he's still more of the Doyle type.

 

Last night I was looking at college TEs of all things, and was looking at a guy for the 4th, Kenny Yeboah of Ole Miss.  Seems more like the non-blocking receiving TE Frank uses like Ebron, Burton, and Ertz.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
