John Conner feels like a "very versatile player"

Fullback John Conner is making a good argument to win the suddenly close roster battle at fullback.

At one point fullback John Conner wasn't part of offseason discussions when formulating projected rosters. Perhaps that's why they practice, conduct training camp, and have a preseason. Because since then, he's making a case to claim the fullback roster on the team's 53-man roster.

And he feels he can do whatever the team asks.

"I feel like I’m a very versatile player and I can do everything that they ask me to do at the fullback position," Conner said. "I feel like I have caught their attention. Looking at myself on film, I’m pretty confident."

Indeed.

Along with being an extremely effective blocker, Conner posted a 13-yard reception on third and five midway through the fourth quarter. Charles was targeted once, but Josh Johnson's throw was low.
