28.Apr.2011 Obum Gwacham…Tight End?
This damn brain, it never turns off. A blessing and curse, I tell you.
As soon as I heard Joe Halahumi will be sidelined for a while, I had the wild idea of converting Obum Gwacham into a hybrid TE. I asked Cliff Kirkpatrick to present that idea to the coaches and get a response, but I haven't heard back.
Is it that far fetched? Antonio Gates was 6'5 240 when he decided to quit basketball and play football at Kent State. Gwacham is 6'5 225 right now. Say he adds 15lbs over the summer…hmm.
With Gwacham's height and athleticism he'd be a nightmare for linebackers and safeties. And with four top WRs signed in the latest class, there will be a log jam at that position. Meanwhile, Tyler Perry (Central Coast, represent!) is the only legitimate, healthy TE left on the roster.
What do you think?
Plausible, creative idea, or too much Cosmo Kramer impracticality?
