    That's what it appeared to me also. Needs to make his cuts a little better too. But he is a large dude.

    I agree. His routes weren't very sharp. He just mainly used his size as an advantage. I'm sure there were a lot more plays in practice where that didn't work than there were where he won that battle.

    So was another TE the Cowboys drafted a few years ago that is about to retire as a HOFer.

    Yeah. Witten has always looked snail slow but history speaks for itself.

    When you are that big, half of your body is always open unless they got a double team

    He's a big fella...Byron is a baller but a guy that big is tough to handle.

    As an aside, @ricogatherssr...strong hashtag game young fella and nice reference...#MightJustGetHitWithTheRICO (shout to Meek Mill and Drake during better times right before the storm. LOL!)

    Love the guy's confidence. Lot of similarities to Martellus Bennett.

    I think about the only thing you can possibly take away from this is that he doesn't need to be wide open to make a catch...In Practice....

    I just don't see it at all with this guy. Can't get the preseason out of my head from last year. Worst blocker I've ever witnessed in an NFL uniform.

    I guess we'll see.

    Yes, but that one has always run excellent routes. Rico has a long way to go in that regard, but he should.

    I'm just happy he can catch the ball at this point.

    Sometimes all you need is one attribute that you can lean on to play in the league. His size could be all he needs
