meadows said on twitter that the coaches told him he could be used at tight end.
I think they are saying Meadows is an OT that could also be an eligible tight end like some tackles in college and the NFL. His primary position is OT, but he could technically go out for a pass on a suprise play.
Gotcha. Thanks for clearing that up Josh. I was having a hard time picturing him lining up as a pass catching TE.
Perhaps in a big package that people think we are about to run on. Interesting indeed.
Correct. They'll often put in an extra offensive tackle instead of a tight end to block or as a disguise and then send him out for a short pass.
I can see that used on 3rd and short in a critical situation or on the goal line.
Even though its Wikipedia, this is a good explanation.
I remember the Patriots doing it a lot with Mike Vrabel.
