The most underrated player in the NFL (at least by his own fanbase) bloody hope he stays, as a blocking tight end and a red zone threat he is great and doesn't cost a lot of money. Give him a pass catching partner and we have a great pair of tight ends.
hopefully he does. He needs an athletic compliment to really be used to his potential like we had in David Martin, but based on what Sherman wants in a TE and how he was used at times, I kind of think he may not be back
Omar Kelly with another doozie.
I hope he stays. Fasano is a blue collar guy that rolls up his sleeves and gets to work. Still has value.
Fasano is a beast when he can actually go out for a pass. His pass-blocking is great and is the only Redzone threat we have. I would welcome him back as long as its for a team friendly. There will be a few options we could explore such as Cook, Keller, and maybe Finley?, but will be more expensive. Re-signing Fasano and drafting Ertz in the 2nd round would be awesome. Both are good blockers, good Redzone threats, and would cost less. Ertz is also a seam threat the team lacks.
I hope he stays
yes as insurance we cannot sign Fred Davis, Jared Cook, Jermichael Finley, or Dustin Keller. Or draft Eifert or Ertz
I've been a huge Fasano fan and think he doesn't get the credit he deserves. The guy is one of the best run blocking tight ends in the NFL, coupled with the fact he didn't drop a single ball last season. He's a pretty useful red-zone weapon too. I think if he can pick up an athletic guy that can run the seam like Keller, Cook Jr or Finley; Fasano'd be an excellent compliment.
I hope AF. Has a future with the Fins, I believe he does.
Give me Finley and Fasano and ill be ecstatic. But I wouldn't mind Finley and Clay. I just don't want Fasano to be our #1 TE
I don't think it is a secret round these parts how much of a Fasano homer I am. This is a guy you need to retain on your football team, even if the price is 2 to 3m a year.
Fasano does everything well, he just doesn't scare defenses. If you gave him Mastrud's role, and got a guy with speed (the guy Egnew was supposed to be) and if he signed a team friendly contract...we'd be crazy not to try and retain him. A less dynamic Heath Miller.
Not for 4M a year. Maybe 2M.
Meh, Charles Clay is the better H-back than Fasano, plus Clay has some ability to be somewhat of a seam threat as well. You can keep a Kevin Miller or draft a young blocking TE late in the draft. Get us Dustin Keller and Egnew can be strictly a red zone target receiving TE in a 4 man rotation. I don't want Fasano back. He's a waste of cao space imo.
Did Fasano really play H back that much? I know we played him in the slot on some passing downs.
We need to keep the guy especially if the price is 3 mill or under.
I'm surprised and glad the first post I read was positive. I totally agree. I read a lot of lack of respect for Fasano on here. Glad to see this post shows some support. Hope he stays. He doesn't get nearly enough credit.
Fasano and Eifert would be trouble for defenses. Which one is staying in blocking?
Or Eifert splits out wide at 5 yard line and Fasano in.
You think they are not looking for Eifert to get the ball? I am. Im covering big dude in the slot. Fasano scores. They hug in end zone.
i say keep him but only as our #2/ backup
A guy worth keeping as a backup about 2 million a year would be about right. I dont think he is a good nfl starter but he is a valuable player
I love how all our "impact" players everyone says is a good #2... Fasano, Bush, Hartline, Smith.
Wake would be the number 1 pass rusher on any team in the league.
You guys do realize that without Fasano there is zero TE ability on this roster right? You have Clay (h-back) and Mastrud (tight end) manning the duties, neither of which inspire confidence at all playing the true TE position. H-back is a completely different position and even so Fasano graded out better than Clay in that regard.
You keep Fasano and draft a TE to pair with him. I'd cut Egnew, his dumbass will never be a quality NFL player, right now his only purpose in the locker room is converting O2 to CO2. The TE you draft needs to beat out Msstrud, which shouldn't be a hard task since he was thrid on the depth chart behing Clay who cannot play true TE to save his ***.
So heading into camp you have Fasano, Clay and a draft pick and maybe Miller or Mastrud as a 4th.
He needs to be teamed up with a legitimate seem threat TE like Keller. Re signing him is a no brainier for me. Much more valuable to the team then Starks, Long or Smith.
