What is the point of having invitations to an event that is not even going to be held? Some sort of participation trophy?

The combine would have been last week. The league has already stated that there would be no combine this year at all. Besides, the last thing the NFL wants to do is send hundreds of people into a state that has decided to ignore best practices when it come to COVID control. Their success of the past season was made possible by their concerted effort to be ultra conservative in those matters. No way they suddenly abandon that approach. There will be no combine and that is a simple fact.

Besides, the combines are greatly over-hyped. Beyond the physical exams and the one-on-one interviews there is little to be gained from the Underwear Olympics.

I am hereby letting everyone know that I have submitted the terms "prebreesian" and "postbreesian" for copyright consideration.

I agree. We definitely need to see what we have. I have heard that TE is the second toughest position to master behind QB. You have to spend time with the offensive line, the receiver corps, and the running backs.

On offense, definitely; you're basically an offensive lineman and a receiver...

Having the best side by side has it's advantages; but you probably get a better take at the Senior Bowl - problem there is that two coaching staffs get exclusive looks at players...
