Didn't the Pats do the same thing with one of their LBs?

 

They also had a WR who played corner as well I think.

My guess is the Giants think highly of Hertzlich as a special teamer... but you can't be a special teamer only most of the time and he sucks as a LB... so why not try him at TE... it's not like we've had anything worth a damn recnetly before drafting Engram.

Yes....Verbal was the LB and red zone TE....and Edelman played dime back when they had a dinged up secondary. ....thing is ..both those guys were starters at the time.....and Verbal number was in the 50s if I recall correctly...not a TE eligible number. ..maybe they had him report as an eligible receiver each time.

I think that's the guy I was thinking of.

 

I'm surprsed you dont see it more in the NFL, the guys are coming out of college are more and more athletic.

 

I know in the CFL typically most teams have a single guy for kicking and punting. WR/RB and OL/DL players are somewhat common as well.

You would think that with $888,000 he could at least afford to join the dollar shave club.

He's obviously just taking up room for all the HoF players out there still in FA.

He's got the size and I'm sure effort on blocks will be there, it's kind of a crowded position for us though.

What's that saying, if you several people playing the same position, you really don't have any? look at the RB issue they've had the last few years, until they do something about this, we'll just be average all the time.

That's right. It was sort of cool seeing a corner with the number 80...

Got an INT in yesterday' sOTA's maybe it was just a number change he needed and Coughlin didn't see it that way?
