If so they could still dip into a pick day 3 of the draft.

    If vannett gets zero interest in FA he might be kept for near vet minimum

    IMHO...not a big fan of this move...

    Ebron has really never impressed me.

    sub par hands, below average blocking skills, and injury prone..
    however, I love the Wormley pick up.

    My 2 cents

    It works like this- if I can't get paid then I go to best opportunity. So if Vannett isn't getting a pay day he will go somewhere to be a two not a three.

    Don't forget with the travel restrictions and quarantine in place, most contracts have a clause that the player still needs to pass a physical. There was an article about this the other day. Ebron probably hasn't taken a physical yet. If his ankle isn't healed, the deal could be off.

    Probably

    .Unless there are no offers and you are sitting at home playing finger football. 3rd string is better than no string...

    Using it as an example of getting great value. Weak draft class could push him to first. IMO heís a solid third round pick in most years.

    Hopefully he looks like the 2018 Ebron,
    2019 he was total trash, #23 ranked fantasy TE

    not too shabby. as long as he can stay relatively healthy, and keep the defense honest, could be a great value for the Steelers

    Juju did this year, too, by comparison to the year before. A good QB makes all the difference.

    Ebron is our new Martavis

    Just as big and fast?

  11. #91
    Hmmm, this needed a thread all on its own?




    Um, to answer your question, Martavis was tall & rail thin, and was timed running a 4.27 in the 40. Ebron, a thicker dude at 240-250 ran a 4.5-4.6.

    So I'd say the comparison between these two players is a stretch, at best, besides the fact they're both around 6-4.

    Not even remotely close to being the same player. Bryant had some of the best long speed in the league.

    I'm hoping if EBRON is just like Bryant.........that he can take a couple weeks off the JangA, durring the testing period.

    I see ebron as a guy the will flex out inside the 20 to run a fade or post where ben will throw it where only ebron can get lets hope ebron has the hands he developed in indy rather than the ones from detriot.
    that can let vance in the slot vs a lb und beat him up the seam.

    Let's hope Vance and Gentry get Ebron on the jugs machine for about an hour after every practice, once they are finally able to start practicing again.
