    Looking at wr Jeff Fuller weighing 225 lbs. if hes able to bulk up a little and make him a TE we may have something.I'm intrigue by his 6'4 frame what you guys think.

    He is waaaayyyyy to small at 215/225lbs to play TE. He wont be able to block for ****. Just No.

    Its a good idea to try and get a guy that never see's the field and make him into someone that could help the team but he would have to bulk up alot.

    might take a season, but getting him up 20lbs isn't far fetched… fans forget Erlacher was a safety who beefed up to MLB… there are similar examples, but I'm running out right now so y'all will have to yell in the info

    Get him stronger and sure, why not. I feel like he'd be more willing to block than Eggnog. The problem is though, he had the dropsies in college and preseason. Maybe he can separate vs LB/safeties instead of CBs though

    I'd like to see what he can bring at receiver. Time for him to put up or shut up

    That would be swell. Then we would have a TE that can't catch or block.

    i like how people think TE is all about height and weight. We are asking a guy that has never blocked a defense end in probably his entire career to finally learn how to block at the NFL level... seems like the dolphins could find better use for their time.

    Weight doesnt determine how good a player can block, TECHNIQUE DOES! Hines Ward was small but he KNEW how to block, just because these players have the "body" to block doesnt mean they know how to. Look at the Les Brown kid who couldnt block for his life, I am sure if you see him on the street he looks huge, but that means nothing. Blocking is a technique first, then strength! Egnew cant block either and hes 6'6 and 250lbs, so this posst is ridiculous.

    First there was someone posting that Rishard Matthews should be moved to TE?

    Now Jeff Fuller should be moved to TE?

    Anyone want to say Brian Tyms should be moved to TE?

    Enough with the WR to TE ideas. If anyone can name me one player who has ever successfully been transformed from a WR into a TE please enlighten me and I will admit that I am wrong. These ideas are terrible. We have WR's who are not good WR's I get that, but this isn't MADDEN. You can't plug a WR in at TE and make it work. Sorry but this is the real world!

    ---------- Post added at 09:55 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 AM ----------

    The WR's that I can think of that have tried the switch are Ernest Wilford and Niles Paul. Outside of that I can't think of any and neither is working!

    Remember when Keith Traylor went from a middle linebacker to a 350 lb nose tackle.. anythings possible.
