They signed OBJ who is guaranteed to get 6-10 targets per game and drafted Flowers in the first round. Combine that with Andrews at TE and an offense that is allergic to throwing the ball, he will be lucky to see 2-3 targets per game.
He's about to hit his "year three breakout" but also could be a full non-factor this year. Needs OBJ to wash out and needs to play well if he wants a lucrative long-term deal.
More likely he gets traded / becomes a free agent and has to sign a one-year prove it deal after his contract is up.
You know it’s 2023 right?
OBJ is not guaranteed 6-10 targets per game. You have him highly overrated.
You think he is getting 100-170 targets next year?
he hasn’t had 100 targets in a season since 2019.
He has had 100 targets just twice since 2017.
