Heinicke, Taylor

Card: Sage 2015
Acquired: Box Breaker, 2015

Taylor Heinicke turned Colonial Athletic Association Old Dominion into a contender with his arm, and  a school record 11,483 career passing yards and 102 touchdown passes.  He was also an adept runner and handled punting duties from time to time. In 2013, Taylor threw for a record 730 passing yards, which stands as a Division I record. Despite this, Taylor’s draft analysis did not stand up well, with many scouts also knocking his size.  He went unselected in the 2015 NFL draft. Although he was courted by the Falcons, Taylor felt more like he had a chance going to Minnesota.   Taylor called it, “A dream come true,” to play in the NFL and for the Vikings.  Heinike had a great camp and preseason going 27 of 41 for 279 yards and two touchdowns  in the preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans.  Comfortable with incumbent Teddy Bridgewater and Shaun Hill moving forward, Minnesota cut Christian Ponder.  While Taylor has not dressed for any games, he looks to challenge 14 year veteran Shaun Hill in the near future for the backup job.

Telfer, Randall

Acquired: 2015, Box Breaker

At 6’4″, 250, Randall Telfer has all the tools necessary for a team serious about blocking for the run. As far as professionally graded blocker go, Telfer fits the bill as an in-line blocking tight end and some teams believe he has potential at the next level at least to fit in with goalline and ’12 personnel’ packages. While some teams lamented his receiving skills, Telfer was relied upon to release out in playaction and zone coverage to make the catch. His best year came in 2011 when he caught 5 TDs.

The Cleveland Browns liked Randall enough where they selected him in the 6th round of the NFL draft.

Reed, Cedric

Acquired: 2015, Box Break

My collector friends were grabbing up all the boxes they could of Sage 2015. At the bargain price of $19.99 I finally was able to snag a box at a local Walmart, and inside the box was this gem in Longhorn Cedric Reed.

A monster defensive end at 6-5, 272, Cedric Reed started 32 games for the University of Texas. During that time he was a 2 time All-Big 12 selection and named to numerous watch lists.  Over his decorated career at Texas, Reed had 37 tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and 6 forced fumbles.

After not being selected in the 2015 NFL draft, he’d sign with the Buffalo and be placed on their practice squad. At the end of the season, the Bills extended him a futures contract for 2016.
