Visanthe Shiancoe signs one-year Patriots contract
We wish you well Shiancoe. Hopefully Tom Brady can give you the recognition you deserve for your ability.
We believe that Shiancoe wanted to go to New England all along. Their effective use of Tight Ends is no doubt attractive to a pro like Shiancoe. He will likely be a #2 TE over Hernandez.
According to Pro Football Focus he(Hernandez) lined up as a WR 71% of the time he was on the field. Shiancoe is bigger (6-4, 250lbs) vs Hernandez (6-1, 245lbs) So Shiancoe will likely stick to being a blocking and receiving TE. Hernandez will continue to see more of the receiving role he is already use to. Shiancoe may take some fantasy value away from Rob Gronkowski but Gronk still remains the #1 TE on the team for you fantasy football players out there, but he won’t have the same record breaking year he had in 2011.
