When exactly did Hill and Graham tear it up together? I'm not being sarcastic, I'm seriously asking. Hill has done virtually nothing by any logic I can think of. I don't get what the point is of continuing to kick this proverbial can down the road.

I don't think Hill has done much from a catching standpoint, I can' speak of what else he brings to the table. I do remember him making some plays on ST, however.

I agree though, I don't remember them both having like 50-70 catches one season. Thought the same when I read it!

So we now draft a TE in the first?

I agree we have not really seen that much from Hill. SP really sang His praised last year and Hill's contributions did not amount to much. He looks slow to me and not a type that can evade tacklers. I would like to see Him do well but I don't really get why SP is so high on Him. Verdict for me is hope for the best.

2014; Graham would draw coverage and Hill ended up with 5 TD passes...

Literally makes no sense. Mickey Loomis' decision-making ability has been dumpster fire status for several years now.

Lets recap...

Matching the offer actually saved us cap space over the tender.
He's a redzone threat, and a good pass catching TE.
He's an excellent special teams player.
He's still very young and developing.
We signed him for back-up TE money.

What exactly doesn't make sense to you?

Yes. GRAHAM drew the coverage away from Hill. And Hill had, I believe, 7 total catches that year. How is that tearing it up? Anyone could have had those 5 touchdowns, when he was left alone.

Hill needs to re-prove himself. I don't want to lose games next year because of dropped passes and incompletions again.
