    Third string TE

    https://nfltraderumors.co/trade-lion...l-7th-rd-pick/
    Was hoping the Steelers would have made this move and secured the TE position. Maybe Iím completely wrong and Gentry is ready.

    Third TE is gonna suck for years, we've fully committed to it
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    Re: Third string TE

    Do teams even use 3rd string TEs for more than like 10 plays a season?

    not unless there's an injury to the top 2.

    I think the Steelers have much bigger problems than who the 3rd string TE is going to be this season...

    Sometimes they’re the long snapper.

    Re: Third string TE

    my prediction: Zach Gentry will end up being just as good as Jesse James.

    seriously, who on the Lions made the decision to pay JJ that much money?

    Well, Vance hasn’t been the model of health throughout his career. Going back to San Francisco he was injured every season. Last season was Vance first full healthy season for the Steelers. So Yeah, the third string TE could be a big deal, and why wouldn’t anyone not want to upgrade any position on the team

    Re: Third string TE

    I think the thought right now is McDonald IS healthy, they seem to like the Xman for some reason, and they're giving Gentry time in TC and preseason to show he can make the squad. I would be ok with bringing in Leggett or similar quality TE for the competition but I don't feel it is urgent at this point. There are a couple PS guys already and Samuels was listed as a TE(SAK) on his scout sheet.

    Exactly!

    This is like a threat titled " Steelers #6 WR"

    The facts are , most of his professional career he has got hurt. I hope he stays healthy for the whole season, I’m just concerned about the depth. The Steelers have been snake bitten before for not having sufficient backups. Besides JuJu and Vance there is a lot of unknowns at WR and TE. I would not mind the Steelers signing a veteran TE that is a decent receiver and a good blocker. All reports is Gentry struggles in the run game.

    Thanks for the article, was a good read. Hopefully when the pads get put on they both still look good.

    Unfortunately, one of those problems is that we have also committed to a #2 TE who sucks. And another problem is that the #1 TE seems a bit injury-prone. Overall, I think we are a bit thin at the position and made a poor draft pick.

    We might be fortunate and not have too many problems this season, but over a two or three-year period - yeah, we are going to see some REAL scrubs on the field for a significant amount of playing time.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    Re: Third string TE

    If the #3 TE spot is the biggest worry on this team they are in good shape.....

    Depth TE can be found via trade during camp and preseason. This is nothing to worry about right now.

    Re: Third string TE

    Looking at the Steelers roster, the two positions that SEEM to lack depth if the starter gets hurt is TE and FS. With Vance history of injury, should be a position the Steelers need to add depth at. I’m sure before training camp starts a TE will be brought in
