A guy with that type of potential for physicality shouldn't be brought down by much smaller corners on a frequent basis - at times it seems that he gives up on the play when he is made contact with and is all too happy to go down with the ball.
I said that after year 1 and was pummelled about the head and neck.

OK, maybe that wasn't the only reason.

He does drop like a rock on contact. I guess thats due to not playing football until his junior year of College. Maybe its a basketball-flop habit he's yet to break.

He would not look good at all in another uniform.

Even with the inury he made an nice impact. Needs to work on blocking but he's not going anywhere. Teams have to account for him. He's not like other TE's. Don't cover him and he will shred you.

INJURY PRONE

He doesn't deserve a raise after his disappointing performances last year.

This is still a year away. Is he gonna out-catch and out-block Gronk? That's when the discussion should start.

I really like Jimmy and hope we can keep him, but his season long case of the dropsies makes me doubt that he is worth crazy money just yet.

Tagging him next season will pay him about six million per annum; I won't cry for him...

And make some moves for another TE as leverage...
