It is refreshing to see a player earn his spot on the roster because of ability and on the field…
McGee is the Band-Aid Applied to Injury
Ken Dilger is a first class tight end, but he does not have the ability to make the circus style catches that Dudley made against Jacksonville in the pre-season. Tony McGee is a pass catching tight end, not the same caliber as Dudley but definitely dangerous. The chances are McGee will not be in the game too much in Philadelphia because he has not had adequate time to learn the notoriously lengthy playbook of coach Jon Gruden.
With Todd Yoder still feeling sore the spot light is being directed at rookie tight end Will Heller. Heller is a blocker, but he has also had the whole mini camp to digest the offense. Heller's familiarity with the playbook and his proven ability to catch the ball make him the best choice to be the man in double tight end formations against the hated Eagles. Keep an eye on Heller to see if he makes the most of this golden opportunity.
