During the offseason while we were looking for a TE I thought that this would be a good move. Pope behind Gonzalez would be great because Gonzalez will be retiring in about two years. During that time with help from Robiskie(receiving) and Gonzalez everything else, this guy could easily becoming pretty good.

Thoughts?

From what I have heard (hearsay) is that is lacks focus and drops many balls thrown his way - which is why he was cut.

As a Phoenix-based guy, I can tell you this pretty much sums it up. Pope just never made the transition to the pro game - all the tools and plenty of potential, but no real progress. He'll get another look somewhere, though. His measurables are still impressive.

So you don't believe that Gonzalez and Robiskie would have any affect?

You mean like how Ryan and Musgrave rubbed off on DJ Shockley?

Look, we already have a backup TE on our roster who has put up better numbers than Pope over the last three years. The only reason he is not a "viable back-up" to you and your type is because he attended college in Oregon.

You'd have to ask Robiskie and Gonzalez, but the prognosis doesn't look good to me. His head coach in Arizona is a guy who made it at tight end with grit and determination and far fewer tools than Pope. If Whisenhunt says it ain't gonna happen, I believe him.
