Thats a shame. He doesn't catch a lotta passes but when he does its usually downfield and in the red zone . Hope this doesnt turn out to be another Bellamy type deal.

So you hope he doesnt develop a really bad attitude? And complain about not getting to play when he doesnt know his play assignments, or where to line up?
Well said.

Look on the bright side. He won't have to take his shoes off to count how many receptions he's had this season.
