Some people understate it in an almost obnoxious fashion, of the "oh....he's ONLY A #2 TE....what do YOU expect?" variety, forgetting that the #2 TE in this offense sees significantly more snaps than the vast majority of #2 TE's in the league.
It should be someone that can block capably, as well as being a threat to receive and actually make the catches when the ball gets passed to them.
In Before......"oh he's a jack of all trades, you can't put value on what he does, he can block, return kicks, punt, serve popcorn, park cars, rescue senior citizens from a burning nursing home....."
21 catches and 9 drops....including 4 in the endzone. To have about a 50% drop rate is just plain embarrassing.
