Tough break. He showed some signs of being a quality back up last year, just needs to find consistency.

I really believe we need to add veteran depth at the position with this loss. Willson looks nice but we have absolutely no idea if he can contribute any more than Evan Moore did. We need some type of proven commodity at teh #2 TE spot.

Why?

Gronk and Jimmy Grahem got thrown right in. No one knew they would become superstars at their position. We won't know if Luke can thrive if we don't play him.

They we're also 2nd and 3rd rd picks. And are you really going to use arguably the 2 best players at the poistion, 2 guys who have revolutionized the position as the reasons why Willson could succeed?

The guy barely played football last year and doesnt have much if any football pedigree. Sure he looks like there's some upside to be a significant receiving threat but to say he can do it right away just because of Gronk and Graham is just dumb.

Wilson would have been a 3rd rounder if he played last year. The comparison to those two is that they wouldn't have gotten a chance to play if their coaches thought they needed to bring in veterans to start instead.

My point is that saying "We need a veteran because we have an unproven TE" is hogwash because we could potentially have a solid TE on our hands. We had Anthony McCoy, who wasn't impressive at all, in that slot last season. Wilson can replace him just fine even though he's a rookie.

Depth and competition is what is important at this point.

This really isn't a devastating loss but he was a solid player for us only dropped one pass last season.

Sean McGrath showed some promise last year. He could probably replicate what Anthony McCoy delivered last year.

Exactly. I love what Willson brings as much as anyone and as a Canadian Im really pulling for him. But this is a team that has wanted to run 2 TE sets for years now and is trying to contend for a SB. Handing the position to a rookie who didnt play hardly at all last year is a mistake. I want to see someone brought it to at the very least push for a roster spot and force Willson to earn it.

McCoy gets too much hate. It's the same story as Mike Rob 3 years ago when no one was willing to admit he was a solid FB. Aside from getting dropsy on occasion, he's a good, well rounded, number 2 TE. It will hurt to not have him. Willson needs to step up and we'll probably sign a veteran like Kevin Boss as a contingency plan

Well said. I've never understood the hate for McCoy, I know hes had dropsies in the past. He dropped 1 ball last year and made some big plays, hes also a very solid blocker. Pretty darn solid #2 and I do see it as a loss with a drop off at this point.

Boss would be exactly the type of player Im advocating for.

I'm not hating on McCoy. I just think he is replaceable, albeit great in his role.

The McCoy hate was well-deserved IMO. This past season he tooka step forward and no one complained....pretty straightforward

very few people acknowledged his improvement either. He wasn't that bad in '12 either
