Excerpt: "Morgan Newton is the newest member of the New York Giants (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants), an undrafted rookie free agent the team was apparently impressed enough with during rookie mini-camp to sign to a contract on Thursday. The Giants waived/injured two players, tight end Michael Palmer (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/109509/michael-palmer) and cornerback Antonio Dennard (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/155649/antonio-dennard).

Newton is an interesting story. He is a 6-foot-4, 240-pound tight end from the University of Kentucky who spent most of his career at quarterback before losing his job and converting to tight end early in his senior season. Newton never caught a pass as a collegiate player. As a quarterback, Newton completed 193 of 384 passes (50.3 percent) for 1,837 yards 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also rushed for 515 yards and three touchdowns on 169 carries.How much of a mystery is Newton? I reached out to SB Nation draft expert Dan Kadar for some input, and Kadar could not offer much."

We can't say Reese & Co. aren't looking to upgrade their players lolEvery upgrade is a good upgrade but it's hard to figure how a 240 lb guy is going to deliver as a blocker for this team. We already tried Beckum in the role of a slow WR and TE who couldn't block and it didn't work. Hey, but I am open minded.

So let me get this straight, he coverted to TE early in his senior season, he was a QB and never caught a pass in his collegiate career ?!?! Am I missing something with this pick-up or that's it ?

Instead of carrying a 3rd QB, we are just going to carry a hybrid TE/QB lol

LOL, can't seem to figure this move out. Coach Pope is going to earn his paycheck trying to polish this kid.;) , I pray to God that he doesn't quit, he is getting pushed to the limit every year with the talent pool he is handed, lol !

Dipset's thread about converting Tebow from QB to TE doesn't sound too ridiculous now after reading this article.

change of pace QB who will throw the ball over the LOS and catch it himself for a gain of 3 yards. short yardage monster.

We should just give him #15 (unless it's retired with Hoss's name on it, I don't remember if it was or not)... maybe then we could tell Tebow "This could be you if you actually practiced what your faith preaches and had an ounce of humility to play a position other than QB"

Damn, another hybrid player! And, now the Giants really messed up by getting rid of whats-his-name and whats-his-face.

Either that, or the dude showed some serious Kellen Winslow/Tony Gonzalez like ability.

Hmmmm a QB who converted to a TE and has been poor at both ... but can run well.

Who else does that sound like? Hmmmmmmm.
