I hope it is true...we would have a great wrbc at the wr2 and wr3 and can manage playing time by down and distance. The speed guys can come in and stretch the field when needed and McCardell can be a possession receiver in normal down and distance packages. We won't have to rush JJ or put Schaub in positions where he has no experience (or just speedsters) on the field at wr2 with a 3rd and 5 and the game on the line.
Sweet! (if true) We'd have a player that could be a leader and a mentor, all rolled up into one!
Plus, like Vinny said, he could help our offense, too.
We don't need no sticken mentor or leader
Mike Vick, Qubert and Tank Johnson
Well except for those bubble guys that were hoping to make the team...
This appears to be a quality pick up if true. Any idea on his speed now?
You would have thought our local "sports journalists" would have broken this story. I guess they're too busy shooting videos or chasing down Vince Young and/or Reggie Bush stories.
he never had much speed (even younger) but his game is not centered on speed. He is a possession wr.
This would be great if true. The battle for WB2 and 3, plus the returner's spots, could be very interesting during camp due to recent additions to the WR crops.
I heard he and his parents who still live in Houston really wanted him to be a Texan.
McCardell's story about how he started out as a 12th round (!) pick and ended up in the league so many years is a testament to his hard work and competitive nature.
Here's the link from the WP.
That would be GREAT!! He will be a definite asset for Schaub and AJ. We could really mix it up in the passing game this year!!
I think this would be a really nice fit. Without reading everything, the guy can run underneath routes and can really be the possession guy you need while your stud, AJ, does his thing and your speed guys stretch the field. He, along with Daniels can work the openings in the 10 yard range and sidelines and you can't underestimate chain movers like that.
I hope it's true, he would be a great addition.

It's really beyond me what all the fuss is about with this guy, because if he was of any real value to a franchise somebody would be more than willing to pay him more than approximately the league miniumum, right ?
Gary Kubiak said he wants to make it tuff to make this team, so bringing as much competition as possible is never a bad thing.
Weren't you pretty high on the P-Buch deal???
Always depends on what a team is looking for and who they have. Many teams who are set or making moves/pushes might not see the value in paying money to an older guy who isn't speedy but considering our situation, it allows us to take a shot at some WR depth and it brings in a guy who can coach the younger ones and who can still find creases in the field and help out. I wouldn't expect a big contract from any team for him but he still has value to those who are trying to find some pieces to help.
Thanks, my thought too but have not followed him. Don't we need someone with a touch of speed to pull DBs off AJ? At least for 20 yds or so? This is the problem I have with Walters and why my hopes for Mathis were so high. 37 is up there for a receiver no matter what examples you can point to.
