Night Link: Michael Gaines Could Be An Option At Fullback

New, comments

Since the signing of Michael Gaines we have wondered where that leaves Kellen Davis, our 2008 fifth-round draft pick.  With Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen being primarily pass catchers the third TE needs to be a great blocker.  This is what is supposed to be Kellen Davis' strong point.  Maybe he hasn't shown much or maybe Michael Gaines is about to catch a case of DMS.

Gaines does have some experience as a fullback.  With Detroit he also caught 23 passes.  Could the Bears plan on keeping Davis as the #3 TE and moving Gaines to FB?

What would that mean for our beloved Fullback Dive?  Would that actually work and we have to stop using it?  Oh, the crisis.
