    What Are Rico Gathers’ Goals After “Agonizing” Year On Injured Reserve?

    ...After so much time away from the field, Gathers says he’s focused on refining his technique and following his assignments from new tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier.

    He fully understands he needs a full, productive summer to help his transition grow.

    “I’ve got to make sure I’m healthy and make sure I’m able to be on somebody’s 53-man roster,” he said...

    This is one player who's career is dependent upon how well a new tight ends coach does with him...

    The blocking thing goes into the whole adapting your scheme to your players strengths. Them not hanging onto a physical freak like Gathers because he can't block would be like cutting Shaq because he can't shoot free throws. I'm pretty sure that blocking is learned and can be improved. It's not like Tebow's terrible throwing mechanics that would've taken him literally 1000s of throws to correct. Dak just needs to put up jump balls all day to Rico...

    I know what you're saying but it really don't matter if he caught a 100% of his passes, if he can't get on the field he's not much help.

    Guys, its not my job, its the coachez job, and its up to Rico to prove he is willing to duet..Right, the way they have coached him..Im not the one who has may have lost trust..Further this may be all a calculated risk..

    The deal with Barwin is the interesting thing he does to Heath..Yes he didnt have to work back to his qb, He didnt have to body heath catching the ball either..Guy was a wr in college..He may have some skill we are unaware of..We dont have enough data to know!

    Agreed.

    So he's not great a blocking? Neither was Tony Gonzales, but he's the all time reception and td leader for tight ends. Would be nice if he can be as good a blocker as Witten was, but if he can't? Then use him more as a wide receiver. Besides, the offense is built around Zeke, not sure even if the Cowboys had Gronk the tight end would be a big part of the offense....
