after years of observing TT's roster building tendencies, i am appreciating so much of what he has been doing.
one tendency over the last two years is to pick up TEs via free agency (3TEs via FA in '16 and '17). this may be a reflection of TT's confidence in TE coach Brian Angelichio to coach up vets coming in; or, it may be a wise strategy of letting other organizations develop rookie TEs before picking up the seasoned TE. with the possible exception of Hunter Henry, rookie TEs do not produce. TT is letting other organizations do some of the initial development.
in terms of salary cap, picking up a TE in free agency has not been costly for the organization.
i like how Ted is taking a holistic thinking approach to the position.
