I would trade him for a top tier QB or RB if the opportunity came up. He isn't as good as we make him out to be. A man that has his skillset and speed should be able to get open when our QB needs help on 3rd down.
I believe Vernon's problem is he doesn't work hard enough to get open. A good TE will act as a safety valve when nobody is open downfield. His problem is he rarely settles into a soft spot in coverage which doesn't help the QB much. I agree Delanie is just as good and should be used more. That was a waste of a pick IMHO. I know I will get heat for this but it is only my opinion
