Ricky Seals-Jones is an ex-WR that has flashed at times early in his career as a receiving TE. His highlight package is pretty impressive with a lot of downfield receptions. He’s only 24 & Klingsbury is reportedly going 4 WR sets and scrapping TE. I’d consider giving him a look.
Damn! Polite got released already? I guess Jets/Florida Gators football is a terrible combination.
WOW. Lots of draft picks ultimately end up unfruitful, but a #68 overall pick not even making the team as a rookie is world-class bust territory!
And it has not escaped the attention of Jets fans that the next player taken at that position was some dude named Winovich.
To be fair, how could the Jets have guessed? I mean, just look at Polite's sterling pre-draft writeups:
I thought about him a couple of weeks ago but read some local reports from Arizona which indicated that he was likely to make their 53. That reporter thought that they would end up keeping three tight ends. he was briefly a fantasy darling a couple of years ago and he’s athletic but I don’t see room for him on the 53. He isn’t an option as a blocking tight end and I doubt that they would choose him over Lacosse. He would be an interesting practice squad addition, however.
I am surprised that the Raiders cut Doss. He is certainly raw but has high upside given his size and athleticism. Wouldn’t be surprised if he is claimed but I would love it if somehow the Pats could get him onto their practice guide.
If a team drafts based on pre-draft write-ups instead of qualified scouts, then the team gets a Polite instead of a Winovich.
That being said, all teams make huge mistakes.
Excellent addition for NO.
Seemed for a bit last year or the year before that Seals-Jones was always catching a TD on NFL Redzone.
Vince Beigel is pissed
psst...you might want to read the write-up excerpts. Polite had bad news written all over him.
@Morgan4HOF _ how can you disagree with a tweet that was posted that had a link to the Steelers cuts?
Well he had 1 last year and 3 the year before. You must have watched red zone only week 11 and 12 of 2017 he had 3 of his 4 in those 2 games.
Every week every year!
He disagreed in a Zuma post that was just showing images from Kraft's Pats BBQ. Clown
I didn't even have Beck and Berrios as PS candidates...enjoy.
Jachai Polite. Lol what a folly of a pick.
Not sure I’ve seen a pick that high get cut so soon since that Vikings player from years ago.
im so glad this dink is no longer in the AFC east. Kiko Alonso
