I mean if you look at the workouts, they're ridiculous.
I mean, those are Vincent Jackson numbers. The Packers under Philbin had a TE on roster back in 2008 by the name of Tory Humphrey. Similar uber-athlete project. Was 6'3" and 255 lbs, ran a 4.50 with a 38 inch vert, 21 bench reps, 10'5" broad jump and an insane 3.95 shuttle. The Packers toyed around with him from 2005 to 2008, finally debuting him in 2008 with him catching 11 balls for 165 yards. He went to New Orleans the following year. You could definitely see Les Brown kicking around the team for a few years the same way Humphrey did in Green Bay.
Last time the Phins converted a TE to T it turned out pretty good. I believe Shula drafted Ronnie Lee as a TE and converted him into a pro bowl T.
The cynic knows the price of everything, but the value of nothing
He just increased his own chances of making the roster by quite a bit, IMO. As is reflected by the fact he's already working with the 2nd string in today's practice.
Have the practice squad rules changed this year? Because if you try to stash Les Brown or Yeatman there, some team is going to snatch them up.
