    I wouldn't worry about that!

    Duke is a LONG-shot with the emphasis on LONG!

    His own coach (who was Gates' coach) even said "of course Wesley was not nearly as developed as Gates was when he came into the league." That's saying a mouthful.

    Gates was a freak. Every team saw that and sees Duke is a physically talented player and thinks "he could have that potential."

    And he could. I could also win the lotto. I might not too. It's not the way to bet.

    Wesley Duke -- even if he is completely healthy will have to first learn how to play TE in the NFL. And he wasn't remotely there yet. So, there's no way to tell that he'd ever even be a starter, let alone a star TE.

    Really, people!

    Teams are now looking for depth....on the cheap. Period.

    When shanny took the chance on him, I was somewhat excited ....

    ....but not doing anything with his chance has turned him into nothing more than

    camp fodder for the rest of the league.



    Besides......Sheff is 4X the player [Duke] is......

    edit:Crap! Finger cramp!
    Funny thing RC, nobody mentioned Gates in this thread!

    You are feeding it.

    If you can get an agile guy who's 6'7, 35-45" vertical, and can catch. That is a lethal weapon around the goal line, and if a guy has speed and learns to go downfield, he's a tough cover. Most safeties in the league can't handle a guy like that. That's why a lot of teams are intentionally going after former basketball players. They jump high, and can get position around the goal line. They already have good footwork, and agility.

    He's only out for two months though. Well have him back by the time the season starts.
