Jermaine Gresham

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Twitter Now this would be a move I could see happening. Everyone loves Josh Hill's potential but Ben Watson is at the end of his career and pretty limited. It would be nice to have some more veteran competition instead ...

Re: Jermaine Gresham

Looks more like a TE who has been converted to WR.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

Pass.

Inconsistent player. A head case. Too many injuries. Too many for even Sean Payton to take a chance with.

We're only kicking tires because Payton is buds with Marvin Lewis.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

Not sure Jermaine Gresham would be happy possibly being a #3 TE. He would provide much needed depth but not a fan if more than vet min.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

Gresham is better then both of our TE's. He's had inconsistent QB's.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

I haven't yet figured out what potential people think they see in Josh Hill. I STILL have no clue when he even got here. All I remember is him showing up on -of all things- a 4th down play a couple years ago and dropping the pass. I had never heard of him and couldn't believe he would even be on the field for that kind of play. He proceeded to drop many more after that game.

Last year, he catches a couple touchdowns and suddenly he's a star in the making in people's minds. I'd love it to be so, but I'm afraid his ceiling is something of an Eric Johnson type player, with less reliable hands.

As for Gresham, he was a big play guy in college and remember him well from that time, but he never could stay healthy and has been nothing in the NFL. He'll catch an occasional touchdown, but again, that means nothing. Offensive linemen catch TD's sometimes, too.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

Jermaine Gresham had 5 tds on 62 catches and 460 yards as a #1 in 2014
Josh Hill had 5 tds on 14 catches and 176 yards as a #3 TE in 2014

Potential is there for Hill. I say give him a chance.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

The former first-round pick completed his fifth season, averaging 56 receptions with 544 yards receiving per season and 24 combined touchdowns -- the last of which featured his third offensive coordinator within a system that's limited in passing game progressions.

Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham still dealing with back injury - Cincy Jungle

at this point i say solid option. given the state of our WR and its uncertainty
