the national media keeps saying this same crap. its so vague and annoying. its just like last season when "reggie bush was going to be a situational back and d thomas was the feature back" and i got laughed at in my fantasy draft scooping up bush as a swing player - turned out fine for me. Following the dolphins i knew his role.
anyone who follows the local beat writers and has heard the coach etc. knows that Fasano has been solid in ota's so far and the coaches like his hands - it seems he and clay are poised to have a big big year.
I think he is cut in August
Here is why I think he is a cut in August...
1. He is not a "Philbin guy"
2. Not sure he is a fit in this system
3. He is in the last year of his deal and could free up additional cap money/save the team cash
4. While contract talks have opened with other FA's on this team, they have not with him...
I will remember this thread/conversation in late August.
For the record, I am not a Fasano hater. I think he has been pretty good. I am just making a prediction. We have to understand that Philbin's style of player is going to emerge around here like it or not. I do not think Fasano is a fit.
he'll be traded.
How do you know he's not a "Philbin guy" ? We've got a whole roster full of dudes that
aren't "Philbin guys". How do you know he's not a fit for the system until he gets a chance
to be in the system? He's a decent pass catcher and blocker...Pretty much what you need
a tight end to do, and so far we haven't found anyone that can prove they can do it better
on the roster right now. Considering we'll probably keep three TEs, I'd bet he'd be one of
Now, NEXT August? Hey, who knows? THIS August I think he's a lock.
