Oh well, no more 3rd and 1 handoffs to Bruce Miller. Roman must be bummed. In all seriousness this may make us open the offense up a bit passing wise.
Maybe. It's a big loss, no doubt, but maybe we can fill his role by committee.
Hopefully McDonald can take advantage of this opportunity and earn a bigger role. When I watch the coaches film on NFL Rewind, this guy can really move for a 6'4" 270 lb TE. It's impressive. He needs to improve his consistency, but he also needs an opportunity to make plays. 1 target a game doesn't cut it.
Maybe get James and Hunter a little more involved in the passing game too. They have speed and change of direction skills that would be really effective in space.
