He'd have to add 25 pounds and then would be slow as a slug.

He's slow as a slug now.

Besides, we already have a slow TE that can't catch.  His name is Anthony Becht.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Could he be converted into a TE?   He blocks well and wouldn't be counted on to catch so often.

I dont think he would have to add 25 pounds. He blocks linebackers right now. The problem is he still has to catch the ball to be a threat there and we already have a tight end we are hoping will be very good there. The other thing is we finally have an offensive line that isnt needing as much help from tight ends. We arent needing double TE sets.

He is best taking out a linebacker or receiver to help others get more yards but he has to catch the ball.

I've seen this thread somewhere else before.  Is this deja vu or what?

Anyway, they may have him line up at TE like they were doing before with Stovall.  Why not?

This is not a new idea at all.

It is pretty laughable though.

We already have Alex Smith who is having a pretty decent year thus far.  Plus behind him, we have Stevens and a guy who catches about as good as Clayton in Becht.  We have some pretty decent depth at that position.

What we need Clayton to be is a WR.  He just isn't cutting it and will be the guy he was the past 2 seasons.  You can blame injuries all you want, but thats not the case.  He's a bust and hey you win some and you lose some.  Galloway, Alex Smith, Hilliard, and Pittman always seem to find a way to get open;seeing it that they catch most of our first downs.  So I don't know what the excuse for Clayton is.  He isn't getting open is all I can think of.

Plus since his mini-tirade on the sidelines Sunday, maybe the Bucs will promote Stovall to slot.  Galloway, Hilliard, Stovall.

Trade Clayton and Simms in a package deal to Miami for Chris Chambers.  HAHA..I remember PFT coming out with a "WRs on the block" rumor and both Clayton and Chambers were on it. 

The Dolphins are 0-3 and soon to be out of the race.  They can swap WRs, getting a younger one in Clayton. They may think they can solve Claytons problem.  Who knows they traded 2nds for Feeley and Culpepper, so who knows what their GM thinks.

Trent Green is most likely done after this year.  They could trade want Simms as a back-up to John Beck or to compete with him for next year..

Yeah I'm pipe dreaming, but can you imagine our O with two WRs of the caliber of Chambers and Galloway.  I mean I like Ike, but he hasn't been a starter since he was with the G-Men.  Hes doing great, but imagine a probowler added opposite Galloway

I am just shooting idea's to try and save Clayton.  There has to be a better value in him other then a WR who block but has trouble catching.  Maybe he needs a sports psychologist to get his confidence up.

Clayton is getting open. He just needs to catch with his hands, not his body and hang onto the football.
