    If the 1960 World Champs want him then we’ll get him. Chip Kelly is on fire!

    Underrated player – could be Aaron Hernandez-lite in the right system.

    This guy has talent and was under utilized in Houston, like Jacoby Jones. Could be a solid option for whoever plays QB. Chip Kelly knows how to use smaller TE H-back types

    Really? Chip Kelly’s offense has a fullback?

    I really liked this guy as a prospect coming out of Rice. Wish we would have drafted him. Solid building block.

    Hopefully we ink the deal. He’s legit, him and Celek would be a potent duo.

    Kelly will carry 5 tight end types and Casey Qualifies as a tight end type.
