    At this point getting a 6'7 veteran TE who is healthy and caught 7 TD's in a season is an UPGRADE. Bring em in Mac!!

    lol. Watch the Fauria's Football Pop Quiz - UK Style that comes up after that clip. He seems like a nice kid.

    This is the best possible outcome for our TE situation come this time of year.

    The thing I like about him the most is his ability to grab the ball at the highest point. Him, Marshall and Decker are some big targets for the redzone

    I am sure we must be interested, Gaily has all our tall receivers playing out of the slot in certain packages as it makes defenses go nuts..they have no idea how to cover 6'6" and above receivers coming over the middle when you still have other big receivers outside..I keep saying if we can get decent QB play this year we could be pretty good.

    Can you imagine? We got big athletic guys in Decker and Marshall on the outside, Fauria up the middle, oh wait don't forget Devin Smith running a fly pattern stretching out defenses, all the while Kerleys getting passes thrown to him in the slot and Ivory outta the backfield. HOLY SH*T!

    I was speaking more about Decker, Marshall and Cumberland who have all been in the slot this year at times.

    This would be a great pickup if true. Hopefully it's us he's talking about.

    No sources anywhere other than Fauria sending a "NY State of Mind" snapchat message or whatever the lingo is on snapchat.

    He'd be an unbelievable red zone target, on top of two extremely solid ones in Marshall and Decker.

    That must have been his main purpose when he had only 18 catches of which 7 were TDs in 2013.

    Exactly right. They had Ebron playing most of the downs (when healthy) and then Fauria would come in for the goal line sets. I think he had three of those TD grabs in one game too. He'd be an excellent complement to Cumberland.

    the Jills cut TE Nick O'Leary (6th rounder this year) when they signed back Matt Cassel. Wouldn't mind a waiver claim there.

    He has good hands and was Winston's top target at FSU. Not much of a physical specimen at all as he's smallish and kinda slow but he has great instincts to go with his hands. It was almost uncanny how he was able to find the spots in the zones and get open. He is also quite versatile and could be an H-back. Wouldn't be much of a blocker and isn't the mountain that Fauria is but we could do much worse here. Might fit in Gailey's spread system.

    It honestly is a no brainer move, we should be in play.

    But watch it be none of the teams this guy mentioned...

    5 TEs? OMG BWAHAHAHAHA! I'm sorry guy, but you're in for a rough ride with Rex. I wouldn't wish him on any good football fan.
