If you go to the Bengals forum they seem to have a running joke that he's a cheerleader fwiw

Ah.  Now we know why the Jets got rid of the Flight Crew.  Too much money being devoted to Uzomah to perform the same task.

Only two games.  I understand Conklin is off to a tough stat with the drops/fumbles but I think he will be good going forward and help Zach.  Sooner or later teams are going to pay more attention to Garrett Wilson which will lead to more plays for Conklin and Uzomah

Amazing how quickly the optimism about the TE position has dimmed. Some folks should reread the off-season threads about Uzomah and Conlklin. 

I’d say almost too quick. Yet, the two fumbles are honestly a big concern and hopefully we’ve seen the last of that unacceptable nonsense. But I’m hoping with that, Uzomah gets healthy and contributes going forward and doesn’t Trumaine Johnson us like so many before.

Both conky and uzomah are stop gaps for 2 YEARS until rucker is ready to explode on the scene next year.  Money doesnt really matter on these short term deals. 

Both are on this team until 2024 guaranteed.

Ruckert is where I have put my faith for the TE position.

Cager is the next Jimmy Graham. 

Yeah totally can see that. Well, except Graham was a 3rd round pick and Cager undrafted. Oh, and Graham produced 130 catches for 1,666 yards and 16 TDs his first two years while Cager had 2/35/0 over his.

But other than those details, same guy.

You have to squint a little bit and pretend Cager has normal sized hands, but yeah... same guy!

Uzomah will prove his worth. I guessing he the best blocker out of the bunch st TE and I expect him to have 30-40 catches this season and a ton of them won't be outlet passes . I think Ructert will be a head of both of them by next season.

Probably, but we need more than just Ruckert; besides that may suck, but they were instantly better than anything we had here (even for a while). In my mind, they did their jobs as Westco is no longer here. When you have a bad team with little to no depth, you upgrade whenever you can. I would suspect we will be bringing in young TEs over the next couple of years (drafts, waived, UDFA) until we can upgrade more. TE was a wasteland the last several years; now at least we have some TEs who can block and catch. Baby steps.
