He only caught 7 passes in 4 years at Notre Dame (48 games played) so he better be a decent blocker.

That can't be right. How the hell did he end up in the NFL with those numbers? Does no one play tight end in college anymore?

He hasn't had much opportunity as a receiver but he's decently athletic and last season LaPorta pushed him down the depth chart.

As far as blocking, I'm not saying that PFF is the end all, be all but yikes...

He did not grade out well in both run blocking and pass blocking per PFF. He had a run block grade of 45.6 in 2023. That's 118th in the league among tight ends. Near the bottom. While he did improve slightly as a pass blocker, he had a grade of 63.7. That's 67th among tight ends

TE position is just bad now. You only have a handful of good NFL tight ends
This is a Charlie Woerner replacement. Reading the Lions board they say he is a good blocker.

The position has changed drastically in the last 10 or so years. You see a lot of guys who are good at catching/routes but suck at blocking or ones that are good at blocking but suck at catching/routes. You want both - like Kittle/LaPorta.

i wouldn't say a lot of tight ends around the league are bad, they're just not premium players that are awesome all around.

A lot of WRs wouldn't make it in kyles system cause most don't/won't block. So part of it is the system too. There are more athletic tight ends than ever though. I like the potential of the one we drafted in the third round. Really hoping he makes a big jump after a redshirt year.
Is the offer sheet a secret for five days?

Is the goal to injure Brock again so we don't have to pay him $55M annually?

The Lions have 5 days to match or lose him for no draft compensation, and the deal is reportedly a 3yr $12M deal, same as Woerner's deal with the Falcons. This comes from a Lions beat writer, forget the name.

An injured Brock would be the perfect excuse for Kyle to get a longer leash should things go south.
Watching his limited highlights, he shows some really good athletic ability. Runs and catches well. He appears to be a player who has been highly underutilized. Potential to be a good pick up and certainly an upgrade from where we have been in the backup TE role.

@LombardiHimself
49ers offered Brock Wright a 3-year contract worth up to $12m, per
@davebirkett
.

Those are the same exact numbers as the deal Charlie Woerner signed with Atlanta. Only $4.16m of Woerner's deal is fully guaranteed. I'm assuming Wright's offer is similar.

Yes, good athletic backup receiving TE with upside. Latu can be the blocking TE that can be a target still.

Brock to Brock!
I believe in the name Brock
Wow they must see something in him to offer a multi year deal. That isn't exactly chump change either
