Ramses Barden
 
He's a UFA on the Giants. Does anyone think that we might be able to snag him this off season? He hasn't seemed to play much behind the receivers that the Giants have, but had a good game against the Panthers this year.

As a Cal Poly alum, I'd be stoked!

I wouldn't mind getting this guy. In fact, his price range is probably the area that the Texans would look in if they go the FA route. Considering the others are the likes Deverey Henderson, Jerome Simpson, & Cribbs, I think Barden has the most upside. Who couldn't use a 6'6" 220lb wr who runs in the 4.5 range? I know of 1 team that has needed a true #2 wr for quite some time.

I haven't really heard his name thrown around at all, but I agree he seems like a great option for us. Especially considering Posey's injury.

Not too many have. He had a very good game a yr or 2 ago when he was given the opportunity to start, but since then he has been buried behind Manningham, Hixon, Cruz, & Nicks the last few yrs. He's a bit of an unknown but he has some great physical attributes for a wr that could him in very handy if he can be developed into a #2 wr imo.

Some jerk off drafted this guy as a rookie in like the 8th round of a draft in my money league several years back. We laughed all the way to the bank, and I've followed his career.

He had one good game in 4 seasons. I'll pass.
