Maybe they’ll actually serve beer at this game.

One player I truly can’t stand …

Pettigrew is 6’6″, 260 pounds and is labeled as the most complete TE in the draft. He is a tremendous blocker attributed to his large frame. He caught 42 balls for 472 yards last season. However he did not score a touchdown and missed three games due to an ankle injury. Pettigrew …
