I know when Zach Line was out the Saints offense wasn't the same.Of course. That's why I brought it up. Sometimes those guys are the best true football players on the field. However they don't get the big contracts and many teams don't even use them. Typically they are low draft or even undrafted.
Ol boy who's name I can't spell from the niners is a FA this year. I really hope we make a hard push to pick him up.Of course. That's why I brought it up.

The only reason I want SF's FB in particular is his ability to do some of the things Taysom Hill does outside of just being a fullback.Too much money to tie into something when you can do better in the draft. I'd take George Astin or Cullen Gillaspia. Or, if Taysom is really the guy going forward, The kid from Army, Wollfolk or someone who better fits the H-back mold.
Ah, ok. I thought I heard when we played them that he was a pending FA this off-season. I hope he's a cap casualty but honestly, he's worth that money they'd save, IMO.
A la David Thomas sometimes even when we had Heath Evans. That's really more of an H-back than a true FB, but I get what you're saying. We tried that with a TE we brought up from the PS when Line was out and then signed Ortiz (wasn't that his name?) who played what I thought was ok in one game in Line's absence, but the following game he only took snaps on special teams.I like a misfit TE used in the FB position. Good hands, good blocker, breaks tackles, nasty attitude, great college player, but go undrafted because they don't fit the prototype.
