Collin Klein being asked to work out as a tight end

Kansas State’s Collin Klein still wants to be a quarterback.

But the NFL wants to see if he can do something else, something he might be better at.

According to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt, Klein will do tight end drills Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Of course, like the guy he’s often compared to (cough, Tim Tebow, cough), Klein is holding on tightly to the idea he’s actually a quarterback.

“I’m going to pursue every door that I possibly can to play quarterback,” Klein said. “Until every one of those is closed, I’m not really considering anything else.”

It seems like the NFL is opening a door for him, and suggesting that he might be better served to walk through it.
