Originally posted by confusedrhino: Vernon is a good player for us, no doubt, but doesn't anyone think he isn't that great of a FOOTBALL player? He can run fast and block, but man he has never looked natural catching the ball or running with it. If he had half the natural receiving ability of a Tony Gonzales, he would be an absolute terror. His receiving has definitely improved in the last year though.
I'm pretty sure he made the Pro-Bowl so I don't know how much better he could've gotten. I mean he dropped some passes but still he was one of the top 3 TE's last year with clark and gates.
