    I like the signing of dante rosario and I really hope this is just not more churning of the roster and he will be cut in a few days, he is not much of a blocker but he can definitely stretch the field for us, he will only open it up more for marshall, bush, fasano, clay and everybody else, this was definitely a good signing, here is a little bit of what rotoworld had to say.

    Rosario isn't much of a blocker, but can stretch the field a bit and play special teams. Cook has starting experience at just about every line position. rotoworld

    If they're bringing in Rosario to be a blocker this coaching staff is dumber than I originally imagined. Having said that, I don't think that will be the case and they'll use him the same way they used David Martin in 2008.

    he will not be used to block, he will be used to stretch the field.

    I don't understand why sign will yeatman if we sign rosario the next day with clay and fasano already in the roster.

    Why carry 4 TE ?

    Clay is listed at FB and will be used like chris cooley in the H-back role, and hilliard will be the blocking FB when we run the ball, we will probably keep 3 TE's on the roster with Fasano, Yeatman, and Rosario, we will use Yeatman as a blocking TE thats it.

    Because Clay is a slash player, no definite position.

    I am a big fan of this move, and for some reason I'm seeing Rosario as one of the TE's that gashed us
    during the Chowder era? I could and probably am wrong, but I just remember this guy playing pretty good. If he is as fast as promised, he will have no problem taking the middle of the field with him when he runs!

    Excited to finally see TWO NEW TEs in Fins colors! lol

    Don't be surprised if Rosario eventually replaces Fasano later in the year as the primary receiving tight end.

    LOL, that's funny...Fasano a primary receiver...

    I like the Rosario signing, but I don't understand why people think he is such an accomplished receiver. He has only 1 game in his career with more than 4 receptions, he has never topped 100 yards, and he has only topped 60 yards twice. He isn't much of a red zone target either, having only 5 TDs in his 62 games.

    I think it's because most people here aren't expecting 50 catches and a ton of touchdowns, but just hoping there's a guy who can step up and make one or two plays a game to keep drives going in big moments. It's really hurt us to not have any NFL caliber TE's besides Fasano since Martin was cut.

    Please, you are breaking my heart with reality. I was hoping Rosario was a seam busting, 4.6, 255lb man-child who was an automatic, 6 catch, 90 yard, 1 TD per game type guy....you are killing my high over here.

    yet you were advocating we trade for a bottom tier 12-14 league QB - so go know. I guess everything's relative, eh? :up:

    I RELISHED the thought of MUSTARD fighting the double team SANDWICH of MAYO and PEPPERS avoiding a hit to his ONIONS while we were playing KETCHUP and smiling for the cameras after the TD. Say CHEESE! But no, he's just a SUB that won't make much BREAD in the NFL......Oh wait, his name is MASTRUD?! Scratch that thought ;-)

    Fasano had 528 yards last season
    Rosario had 313 yards in his BEST season

    So I don't see your logic anywhere?

    He's also slower than Fasano and dramatically less productive on a per-catch basis last year.

    It doesn't matter to some people, change is more important than careful consideration of relative abilities.

    Really? I'm seeing a bunch of threads and posts about how Rosario will stretch the field and will be a great red zone target. History shows neither of those things are bound to happen.

    hmm a mid level starting qb versus a guys who couldnt even make an nfl roster elsewhere. Rosario could even crack Denvers talent lacking roster I dont get your point.
    Orton still looks like a better qb than Henne at this point althgough I would love for Henne to play at next level

    Rosario is obviously a backup for Clay, who they are hoping big things from... me too. I think his versatility is (hopefully) the key.

    Because he's an upgrade over Fasano who sucks @ss as a receiving TE.

    Rosario might be a decent pickup but he is no upgrade over Fasano. The three guys that beat him out in Denver were no world beaters
