He is the prototype for the new "RD" (rag doll) TE!

I was going to ask what kind of crack you were smoking until I realized I read the size of the lineman we cut instead of Arnold. 6-6 290 running 4.6 would've been more promising for TE.

Not the first time they brought someone in that no one gave a chance who proved to the naysayers wrong. Let's just see what happens.

Good body to have around. Hard to find someone his size that is even ok. Really need him on the PS.
