There was a small write-up on rotoworld (Palm Beach Post) about Anthony fasano not being a great fit with the dolphins new scheme as they are looking for “more athletic TEs” and at his size of 6’4 255lbs he is more of a blocker. If he is actually “expendable” it presents an interesting scenario.
First off, I don’t look at fasano as strictly a blocker, he is much more athletic then a guy like Anthony Becht was, so he can be used as a receiver, without ever being mistaken for Jimmy Graham. He is also a relatively consistent player with 30+ catches each of the last 4 seasons and a decent number of TDs (19 career) which is probably a result of his height allowing him to be a decent red zone target.
When you factor in our enormous need for a blocking TE, along with the fact that he already knows our offense, I would love to see us call Miami and offer a 4th round pick.
He makes about $3.6 this season which is pretty high, but is a FA after 2012 and could potentially be extended at an amount that is more favorable to the team and also serve as insurance if Keller doesn’t work out in 2013.
Seems like there are a lot of “fits” with him and IMO would be a great player to see on our roster on opening day.
[QUOTE=KRL;4500165]He would fit but there's no way I'm giving up a pick and paying him 3.6
for a #2 TE. If he gets cut bring him in otherwise I'll pass[/QUOTE]
We gave up a 4th round pick for a backup qb who can't throw. A day 2 pick for a TE who would significantly improve our running game and pass protection plus give Sanchez another safety valve in the passing game is way more rational.
Fasano would make both Brick and, more importantly, Hunter better.
[QUOTE=PatsFanTX;4500344]Bingo, but will the Jets have any cash left after Revis breaks the bank for a 3rd time?[/QUOTE]
Tanny will get multiple first round picks for Revis if the negotiations get too out of control. It's been done before with Keyshawn Johnson and it actually worked out really well for the Jets. Just Abraham alone by himself was better than Keyshawn.

There is not [B][U]one team[/U][/B] out there that will give up multiple 1st round picks for Revis.
