I thought MM was saying Bear Pascoe could be taking over VD's role when we let him walk in two years.
--I saw more receiving ability from rookie tight end Bear Pascoe in two practices than I saw from Billy Bajema, the man he's replacing, in four seasons. Pascoe first duty with the 49ers is to be a blocking specialist. Depending on what happens down the road with Vernon Davis , he might be the every-down guy in a year or two.
I don't know if the 9ers will want Davis back, unless he takes less money. VD/Pascoe could have their positions THIS YEAR mixed up. Over time Davis might be the best blocking TE, and Pascoe might be a better pass catching TE on the roster. With Walker used in situational spots of course.
Pascoe from his very first press conference was not shy about wanting to be featured in the passing attack. It will be interesting to see how his career shakes out.
