Default Re: Mike Sims-Walker to work out for Texans

June 1st is an almost irrelevant date now. It's a relic of teams figuring out how to work a salary cap and a little bit of an out valve for early in big deals. It's even less significant of an issue in the last few years because teams can designate two players as June 1st cuts well before June 1st.

Why not just sign Plaxico? He's a red zone threat and can stil run. He makes more sense than msw.

How much $$$ does Burress want? If he were willing to sign for the minimum (like Sims-Walker), he would be on a roster by now.

So that fans can complain that they never sign the most familiar named free agent?

Burres did have a pretty decent year last year, but he comes off as more a red-zone specialist. i just continue to think that they need a more complete player. while at their best Plaxico has been better, he will 35 in before the season and the potential "upside' belongs sims-walker at this point in their careers.

Last year, he played for 3 million. This year, someone will give him at least 2.

We actually need a Red Zone WR, IMO.

But as has been pointed out, he won't sign for league minimum. Not this year.

I don't see the need for Mike Sims-Walker or for some other mediocre veteran. Bryant Johnson, Derrick Mason? These are just guys who have gotten themselves in the way of developing rookies. With experience literally everywhere else, rely on the talent of the youth you've drafted. Walter is the veteran, sliding back into obscurity and poses as a bar to be jumped. Posey, Martin, Jean, Maehl, Holliday, Louis, Iglesias if not potential there's plenty of mediocrity to go around without adding MSW.

Then he more than likely would have signed somewhere already. No one will give him more so he will sign for less.
