Maybe WR Michael Clayton should just become a TE

Here's a thought: Put WR Michael Clayton at Tight End. The guy LOVES to Block and does it exceptionally well, so why not? He doesnt have explosive speed and has had trouble catching the ball as of late.

By moving Clayton to Tight End, you're taking advantage of the guys greatest assets, which is blocking. You're also taking the emphasis off of him to produce. When was the last time the NFL looked at any given Tight End to dominate games? Tony Gonzalez was probably the last. Sorry Giants fans, Shockey isnt even close.

Back to the subject at hand, I think Clayton would excel at Tight End. He's obviously undersized, but he's got the right technique and tenacity. Would you guys consider the move or leave Clayton as is?
