Intersting to see in the Giants game that Guard Rich Seubert often comes into the game as a TE - really to serve as an extra blocker. Although he's eligible to receive (and needs to be announced each time he comes in since he has a OG #) I don't think they've thrown a pass to him yet. He's there to block and apparently does it well. While I know a lot of people are big Daniel Graham fans - as am I at his current price tage - if Graham's primary role is blocking, I continue to question why we'd pay a $3-$4 million for a blocker when a decent guard earning a million or less - who obviously specializes as a blocker - could serve the same role. So while there's no doubt that Graham is one of the best blocking TEs out there, can we honestly say that a cheaper guard couldn't block nearly as well for a fraction of the price? I don't discount the fact that Graham can and does catch passes so that's certainly worth a bit more money - if he can remain healthy and on the field - so I could still justify him gettting $2 mil a season or so ... but no where near what a top TE would be making. This of course plays into my theory that naming him Captain is sincerely to show him how appreciated he is by his team and the fans - even if that doens't translate into one of the higher TE salaries for next season.
