The events of draft weekend certainly support that theory.
Baltimore drafted back-to-back tight ends: Ed Dickson in the third round and Dennis Pita in the fourth round. (The Ravens were reportedly set to take Dan Williams, but wound up with Sergio Kindle, Dickson, and Pita as the bounty of the Tim Tebow trade.)
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says the team still expects a “great year” from Heap, but their actions spoke louder. They took two versatile tight ends that will be weapons for Joe Flacco.
Heap is due $4 million in 2010 and will have to stay healthy to avoid being phased out in Baltimore sooner than later.
