I wonder if there were fans who believed he would actually make the roster. I figured he had a huge hill to climb and making the roster would be a big surprise.

I know there were fans who thought he had a chance. I was one of them. I was into the experiment.

I am sure Billicheat gave him lessons on how to not get caught (cheat) but he did not pay attention.

There are fans who think a TE who blocks is same thing as a extra lineman so it does not surprise me.

I think based on his background he had a chance but would have had more of a chance changing position on same team like George Wilson did.

Don't understand signing that UDFA from Florida versus giving Fisher a real shot to show what he can do.

The UDFA actually plays and has been playing the TE position.  Fisher is trying to move to TE.  If the guy who actually plays TE showed the coaches something it's a no brainer.  He's young and doesn't have to learn the basics of the position.

I'm assuming that McDermott decided that Kroft would not be enough of a locker room leader with a whole room full of rookies.  That is at least a good share of the reason that Lee Smith was signed.  Of course, Kroft wasn't going to be the guy they would let go, since he may well be the best guy to begin the season as starter.  Fisher, whose skill set was closest to that of Smith  (which makes him a very one dimensional tight end until proven otherwise) was the logical cut to make.  I wish Fisher well and hop he has a chance to continue his quest to make his position switch successful.  Just don't sign with New England.

Blocking is certainly one of a TE's main priorities. But, I think It's also the last thing they learn at the NFL level. I knew absolutely nothing about Fisher when we signed him, other than his previous position. But, I thought it was an interesting experiment that might have payed off. TE seems to the the default position of a lot of players that don't fit their original positions. How many TE's have we seen that started out as QBs, or WRs? If Sills had more meat on him, he'd probably be a TE. I'll be interested to see if another teams picks up Fisher.

It looks like a pretty basic play, so there's not going to be a lot of harm to the Bills from his posting this.

 

That said, this guy is a ***** idiot. What team is going to sign him, knowing that he posts his team's playbook online for all to see?

 

Remember when Chris Cooley posted the playbook and his schlong in a single photo?

I'm going to give "The Process" the benefit of the doubt and assume the goofy signing/rebranding Fisher as a "TE" was some sort of smokescreen-type stuff.

Fisher probably shouldn’t have put part of the playbook on Instagram last night

This is interesting. And, yeah, probably not a good idea to be posting it on social media.

As any player signed as FA tryout ever made a NFL roster?

yes. A bunch of kickers and many DB's in season every year.

 

Teams tryout street FA players almost every week in NFL.

They haven’t released Keith’s brother Cody as  yet?

 

Hope Cody gets a bit more time to impress then Fisher..

Because they need one Aaron Hernandez style TE. They'll probably keep searching for him as long as Daboll is OC.

A real slasher?

A TE who will leave LBs and DBs hanging?
