I really like El Tejano's take on the WRs and how to make it work.

I completely agree with his list of WRs.

(1) Sloan Thomas has proved he can hold onto the ball and make some good yards-after-catch. (2) Mathis is a no-brainer because of his WR/KR ability. (3) Swinton is reliable in the WR/KR positions, as well. The mainstays of (4) AJ, (5) Bradford and (6) Gaff are expected.

My only dillema is between Armstrong and Starling. Too bad Kasper didn't come to us last year. He's got a future due to his toughness. Reminds me a lot of a Wayne Chrebet-type of WR.

We don't need three TEs. We don't even throw to ONE of them anyways. I'd like to see us run 5 WRs out there like the old run-and-shoot days. Could you imagine us trotting onto the field AJ, Bradford, Gaffney, Mathis, and Swinton? That'd get a defensive coordinator's attention!

I like the list of WR's too ..... Thomas has earned a spot on the roster , Mathis and Swinton both have value as reciever and Kr/Pr .


As for running out w/ 5 WR's ..... NOT in this lifetime with that O-line !

This is probably a dumb stupid question, but I really dont know.

Can we take one of our wideout and use him more at TE? Like a Kasper?

I think a LB would see time at TE before a WR . Probably Wong in this case .

Sears is a mild surprise.

Kasper and Starling should catch on somewhere. Are you sure Donovan Morgan wasn't in there somewhere?

Looks like Sloan has made the team.

Don't forget that Simmons can play corner and both safety spots effectively giving us extra depth there too for the price of 1 roster spot.

I'm guessing they're gonna give Morgan some more time since he just joined the team like a week ago. If Starling clears waivers, is he still PS eligible? Morgan will likely end up on the PS as well when its all said and done.

I'm surprised Corey Sears was cut, too. But I guess with Payne, Smith, Walker, Deloach, TJ, and Ioane we currently have better options.

I think Starling was only active for 8 games last year so he is still eligible--9 is the cut-off.

i dont know about yall but i really liked kevin kasper....but we have alot of talent at wide reciever now so i guess everyone else beat him out, still thought he woulda done great for us though especially as a special teamer.

Sears' fate was sealed on draft day and there's a reason Kasper has been with four teams in five seasons. He is to the offense what Jason Bell is to the defense. Don't be surprised when McKenzie beats out Bell for the last CB spot.
