I want to vote 2 AND 4......cut him at the end of the year. He has zero trade valueso that's really not an option.

Cut him. He's a "receiving" TE that cant catch.

Benching him is the pragmatic move. He's already a poor blocker on a team that needs blocking help. That he can't hold onto receptions is just icing. Fells doesn't get a lot of separation on routes (certainly not a much as Ebron), but at least he'll reliably bring down the pass when it hits him in the chest or hands.

Ebron brings nothing to the table, and his snaps should be used to develop Roberts. Trading him is pointless because he makes too much money to have any value. Long term cut him, but for now bench him just in case we need him later due to injuries.

Need a WR....

I say we trade SF....they're 0-5....for Marquis Goodwin. This team desperately needs someone who can stretch the field and create separation. He would probably only costs us a mid rounder. It's time to open things up.....but doing it with our current roster of zone WR isn't going to work.

Ebron can't even catch a ball under ideal climate-controlled conditions, try to trade him until mid-season, when road games will be played under colder/wetter temps, (GB, CHI, BAL, CIN) then cut his ass, if no takers.
