    Barnidge only played one year with Olsen, and he couldnt edge out Ben Hartsock that year. He was behind Dante Rosario and Jeff King before that. Barnidge hasn't proved anything to me other that he can catch the ball when force fed on a losing team who had no other receiving threats. His production dipped with the "emergence" of Pryor. And I put emergence in quotations because his catch percentage was rather pedestrian. Barnidge is Brandon Lloyd in my eyes and apparently a lot of executives think the same as no one has signed him since he has no injury history and I doubt his asking price is particularly high. Even the Patriots haven't signed him and they sign every TE they can.

    I don't even see a need at TE. Derby, Green, and Heuerman can all perform and Butt will be good when he sees the field. McCoy can get more production out of all of these guys.

    Ladarius career is over. He will not play again.
    For now....
    1. Reuben Badass LB; 2. Joe Mixon RB; 3. Jake Butt TE; 3B Sid Jones DB; 4. Bucky Hoges TE; 6. Ryan Switzer WR. Trade for Sheldon Richardson.

    A player's best ability is availability and that's something Green cannot provide.

    For what its worth, last year Barnidge (in a down year compared to 2015) had more receptions and yards than all of our TE's combined....

    Don't we normally call the national guard when we need help from the TE.

    Don't know about you folks, but I really would like to see some production from the TE position this year, and going forward. It can be a young QB's best friend, to have a big, good hands target, only a matter of about 10 yards away (on average). Nothing too imaginative at times, just look and deliver to a pretty wide open target. Even if it's only good for 5 yards, it's better than an average run for most backs.
