Levine Toilolo was supposed to be the long-term replacement for the great Tony Gonzalez, but that hasn’t happened. The Falcons drafted him before the 2013 season with hopes of him learning from Gonzalez for a year but his lack of real talent has shown over the past two seasons.
At the time of his draft, Toilolo was the tallest tight end in the NFL at 6-8, which is great, but hands are more important and he doesn’t have any. The only hope he has of remaining on the Falcons is his small contract, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s popular two tight end set. But with new guys, Jacob Tamme and Tony Moeaki now with the Falcons, it seems he may be out the door soon.
