What the deal with his kid? Banged up? Dog house?

He was supposed to be the second coming, and with Ford's struggles, I don't know why he doesn't see the field more.

needs to gain weight but i love his athleticism. Golden's offseason program after the year is gonna be crazy. It will really help the bottom half of our team gain the mass/strength they need for their careers.

He was in the game today for at least 1 play. Cant block thats why he sits. Probably our best receiving TE.

He must be a really bad blocker if he can't sniff the field but Ford plays so much, b/c that's Ford's biggest weakness too.

I'm surprised they don't flex Cleveland out a bit in the slot the way we used to use Winslow/Shockey to give another big body out there.

Gain weight? Isn't the dude 6-5, 250?

They need to find a way to use him in a role similar to what many NFL teams use a "receiving" TE. Think Aaron Hernandez on the Pats. Even if he can't block, he is still a resource to this team. This team needs to exploit the middle of the field against FSU. If it does not, it will lose.

I suppose he could weigh 250 but he looks similar to Jacory out there as a TE. I know his lower body looks ready but his upper body is like a high school player. I just think he needs time to develop. There is no doubt his shoulder injury this offseason hurt his opportunity to get stronger prior to the season starting.

TE should be a strength next year with Warlord, Dye, Asante, Perry, and White all in the mix.
