At least update him to Chris Taylor.

Our WR corps has a lot of questions and issues. It's kinda scary. It could be great and it could be HORRIBLE.

Andre: One of the greats but he's had problems staying on the field the past couple of years. That worries me.

KW: A hard-working, lunch pail kind of guy. But after a great and unexpected 2 year run here, he declined in 2009 and 2010 and then declined more in 2011. I don't think the guy has it anymore.

Trindon Holliday: I thought he got cut after his one game last year. I don't know if he played any wideout in that game but he's got 0 catches for 0 yards.

Juaquin Iglesias: I remember having high hopes for this guy coming out of college. Drafted in the 3rd by the Bears in 2009. He's bounced around the league. He's played in 1 game. For his career, he's got 0 catches and 0 yards.

Jeff Maehl: The only other guy on our squad with any regular season experience as a WR. He was active for 3 games and I think he only saw the field in 1. He's got 0 catches for 0 yards and 0 TDs. In preseason last year, he had 5 catches for 30 yards.

LeStar Jean: He flashed in training camp last year. In the preseason, he had 2 catches for 53 yards before getting injured.

Posey: A rookie. Could be great but he's still a rook. And it's supposed to take rooks time to learn this offense.

Keshon Martin: See above.

Dwight Jones: See above. PLUS headcase. BUT he's a physical freak.

Even though I'm glad Jacoby is gone, having this little experience on the field worries me. Even before Jacoby was officially released, I had our WR corps for the 1st game as:

Andre, Posey, Martin, KW, Jean, and DJones. With Maehl having an outside shot.

Only 2 experienced guys.

I've watched alot of Lestars college plays and he has some really good hands, and can run through people. Watch and you will see a lot of the same qualitys that another WR on the team has.

I'm not saying the other guys dont have a shot and he is automatic, but i think he has just as good of a chance as any of the other guys !
Because DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin were drafted, and Lestar wasn't. Kubiak has always been known to stick with his players that he drafted, even when they play bad or mediocre. Lestar was also injured, and it was a season-ending at that, so who knows how well he will perform again. I just think they will outperform Lestar, at least Posey and Dwight Jones. Martin might take a year or two to contribute all that much at WR. And Dwight Jones was at once, a 2nd round prospect, if it wasn't for his stupid party he had, he probably wouldn't have gone undrafted.

No.. and why did he remind you of Hollings. (I ask, because thats a odd comparison).

Tony Hollings was a rb for just 4 games in college and the Texans spent a second round pick on him. There is no comparison there. I would've went with Jacoby Jones over him and when he flashed, it was only on special teams

Rod Smith, Arian Foster, Chris Myers, Kevin Walter, Joel Dreessen, and Mike Briesel all say high... all players that Kubiak rolled with over players that were drafted and drafted much higher. I'm sure if you could go through every player that came in the league under Kubiak, you'd find even more examples.. Pretty sure TD would fit somewhere in there as well

If LeStar can play HE WILL PLAY, draft status doesnt have anything to do with it. Outside of Andre, the entire WR depth chart is up for grabs...

After Jacoby was released, Kubiak said They drafted a lot of receivers, but Lestar is the next man up

Hey drs,

It was actually a pretty mild winter but has stayed cool...30s to 50s. Today we hit 80s for 2 days and then back to 60s for weekend. We are enjoying it so far. New addition to family 2 weeks back so it has been a crazy year . Hope all is good with you

Outside of AJ and KW this WR corp is so young, they probably still have diaper rash.

I see a lot of talent and a lot of potential upside but potential doesn't mean diddly squat in a game. You have to prove you can do it.

I think you have to keep KW this year even though on a strickly talent basis he is falling off and being surpassed by others. But he is still valuable in the run game, runs precise routes and he'll be where he is supposed to be when the QB gets in trouble. He's like the girlfriend that isn't quite so attractive anymore but you know her so well you don't want to dump her until you know that comely blond accepts your date invitation.

My guess is this is KW's last year as a Texan. We groom some of these youngsters this year and see who steps up and can take that #2 role. We need his money to help resign our FA's next yr.

That #2 role in 2013 probably goes to the better of Jean or Posey. Don't rule out Dwight Jones as a dark horse either IF his head is screwed on straight.

Martin's future is as JJ was imo - PR and slot guy/#3 or #4 WR.

I could be wrong, but I don't see our future AJ replacement on the roster. I see a bunch of #2's and #3's and #4's. That's still something we need to address at a later date.

I'll take a stab at the final roster. I say 6 make it. In no particular order - AJ, KW, Jean, Posey, Martin, and D. Jones.

I'm not worried about Rooks being the 3,4,5,6 whatever option. Our most common offensive packages are 2 TE sets regardless. As long as the rookies come in and block for Foster/Tate I'm good with them.

AJ
KW
Posey/D. Jones
Bryant Johnson/Posey
Ke. Martin
D. Jones/Bryant Johnson

I think we take 6 this season, with the 6th slot being inactive gameday. Is B. Johnson still on the team?

If enough of these WR's step up during pre-season I wouldn't be surprised to see KW reduced to a role where he barely gets on the field. KW is a good run blocker for the position, but his run blocking isn't going to keep him on the field. He is a WR so he primarily needs to be a good receiver.

I actually like KW as a situational WR/player though. Short yardage slot guy. Back up type guy...Hands team...

Honestly, I don't ever feel like he should have been the #2. I think he was built for the role that I described above.

Only because it didn't make sense that he wasn't a cap causalty.

Some things just don't make sense. Jacoby outlasting those guys surely meant he'll at least take week 1 snaps....... surely. Unless we've got a GM without a clue, but we know that's not the case.

As much as I love me some KW, I really hope someone can do what JJ never could. Step up! I think that is what Kubiak really wanted Jacoby to do, but never could take it to that next level. Especially when AJ went down.

I don't care who it is, drafted or not, just step up and steal the spot.

Honestly I don't think Kubiak wanted to cut Jacoby. I heard on the Radio that Kubiak considered him like a son. Jacoby spent a lot of time in his office early in his career and outside of having some growing up to do early on, he did everything Kubes asked of him. He became a hard worker at his craft, stopped the off field behavior issues, got into his playbook...

We use the name Smithiak, but really they're two separate people. Then you throw McNair into the mix and that is another opinion that needs to be honored. I don't think they had decided they were going to cut Jacoby.

I heard a report that they tried to trade him for Colt McCoy. Well, they didn't know that Colt McCoy might be available until after they drafted Weeden.

Maybe they knew he wouldn't be here next year a lot earlier, but I think they just addressed it at the time they saw fit.

I don't know why everyone is putting their eggs in the LeStar Jean basket. I think if they really trusted him they wouldn't have brought in 4 or so other guys but that's just what I think. The last time we relied on a 2nd year undrafted player turned out well, though.

I have a hard time believing that Gary will roll out day one with Tis kind of unproven youth at WR considering they are favored to win the division and want to make it to the afc championship game aft being so close last year.

I'd consider when it came down to it last season, they opted to try out Mason and Johnson late in the season as opposed to trying to promote the younger guys.

It wouldn't surprise me to see a guy like Johnson resigned while the others fight it out for the remaining spot(s). I just think Posey being drafted high gives him the inside track to stick. I didn't get to see any preseason action last yea, so I have no clue on the LeStar hype.

I don't think people are putting all their eggs in his basket. I think they are just saying they think he can/will be a good player.

They brought in other players for depth and competition IMO. I believe that behind AJ it's open season on WR spots. Things will shake out in camp and pre-season. Hell we spent a 2nd round pick on Harris and he barely played last year. We spent a third on Jacoby and he never got past #3 receiver.

I don't think that bringin in WR's means as much to Lestar Jean as it did to Jacoby and KW...

LeStar is just another young guy with an opprotunity to get playing time and a roster spot.

I think there is a good chance no one will be signed until/if these guys prove they aren't ready.

I would think they'd want to give these young guys every shot they can before going after a vet...

And as for LeStar Jean and his supposed "shoulder injury", did anyone happen to see the play in which he was "supposedly" injured?

I'm just wondering if Kubes "stashed" him on IR to keep him from being picked up on waivers, but I have nothing to base that on.
