I don’t know if it is just Lenners or if there are a couple TE’s that do it, but has anybody else noticed how he always slows down and takes the hit instead of trying to deliver the hit and run over the smaller Defensive Back.

Yes, he’s too easy to bring down. Just think of Holcombe was catching those balls, what do you think would happen? God bless the kid (Lenners), but start being a hammer and stop being the nail.

I think the kid has great, soft hands. maybe runs 'inside' his frame and doesn't seem to have a lot of lateral juke. closing in on contact, his steps get small, and to this eye, look tentative. he does fall forward.

and most of all, he's been great as a posession receiver. room to grow on yards after contact, fair to say.

but hey, isn't it just AWESOME that we're talking about a Tight End as a receiver and catching passes?

I'm with you on that last statement.
