That would be a good combo. How much does Isaac Bruce have left though?

He would be a good pickup for us, proven receiver, helps remove alot of double teams on Johnson, could force defenses to move back and possibly open up the running game a little more,

The number one thing a young WR needs is a good veteran WR to help out the young'n learn. It worked for T. Holt. BTW, does anyone know why Holt changed his number?

They have moved the cap compliance deadline again to Wednesday so Bruce may get un-released.

If he does get released, 34 year old WR's coming off 500 yd seasons come cheap or they shouldn't come at all.

I doubt he would come, but he would help AJ and Mathis a LOT...he has helped Torry Holt a bunch, but I doubt he wants to come to Houston...but maybe he sees how Kubiak got Rod Smith to the pro bowl late in his career and wants the same?

Im all for Bruce as the #2. He's proven a heck of alot more than Bradford has, plus he'll spread the defense open.

Bruce at league minimum, no problem. I want a #2 that is a possession receiver, a chain mover. I loved Bruce in his heyday, but I just do not see the value that he brings to this team for anything other than league minimum.

I was thinking that Bruce could help AJ like Mutombo is helping Yao...

I'm guessing Bruce will command around 1-1.5 million for his services

right now what we need from a #2 reciever is a guy who can take AJ and mathis under his wing and show them how to be a reciever in the league for years and years...that's why guys like bruce and mccardell would be perfect for us...we don't need these guys for years and years...we need them for a 2 years tops to help mentor these young recievers and give andre some time to get down field without the double and triple teams...experience at reciever is what we need...right now our most veteran reciever is bradford nuff said
