    Joel Dressen

    What do you guys think about signing this guy to be our 2nd TE behind Keller.

    Decent run blocker
    Decent hands

    This guy would be an upgrade over Mulligan:

    with the added upside of no more false start penalties.

    Then again...these are the Jets. And if any team in the league would have a stationary boulder get flagged for false starts, it would be us.

    We did. Stole him in the 6th round, then gave up on him far too quickly. He's just the kind of guy you want as your 2nd TE - a dependable receiver with good blocking ability.

    Him and Owen Daniels are a nice TE tandem.

    Like we've done with several players and like we may do with Sanchez.

    No what I want is Cumberland to get his achilles healthy. Everyone is
    forgetting how good he looked in the pre-season and the start of the
    season. He's 6-4 and 260 our #2 TE is already on the roster

    cumberland's rehab is going great and is expected to be back. he is a beast in size and has very good speed. he could be our jermichael finley if we had a qb that could throw to him

    Not doubting you, but where did you see this? It's great news if true.

    Cumberland wasn't much as a blocker either, but he definitely would have kept Mulligan on the sidelines where he should be shackled.

    All things being equal (i.e, $$$$), Joel Dressen will sign with a team that has a QB that can get him the ball. [B]He will not come back to this mess. [/B]Dallas Clark and Antonio Gates are getting to the point in their career where it seems they are always hurt and out of the lineup. I can see Dressen ending up on either of those teams.

    I'm definitely buying into the 2 TE offense (see my post about drafting a TE early this year), but I'm not sure if Dressen would be the answer. I think he was on the Jets team that lost to Denver in the AFC Championship game (when Vinny T was QB) so he's not young and probably not that fast.

    Cumberland could be good. That's why Jets NEED an OC like Norve Turner (too late now). They need an OC that won't do an end around to kill a drive! They need an OC that know how call plays and go with the hot hand. SCHOTTY SUCKS!!!

    Dreesen was also a long snapper.

    Is this a joke? Dreessen was drafted in 2005...

    I think you are cunfusing him with Blake Spence. Dreessen was drafted in 2005 so he is probably around 28.
