    Good trade! We desperately need a WR. How has Mason looked this season?

    Can we end the "not looking for WR" bitching now? :spin:

    Just by a quick glance at the stats it shows two games started, with 13 receptions for 115 yards. If I remember correctly he was traded to the Jets in the offseason, and then traded here.

    Not a bad move. Maybe he can tip us a little bit on what Baltimore does as well.


    Unfortunately this could mean AJ is gonna be out longer than we thought. I hope I'm wrong on that.

    If I had to guess, I would say McNair just kicked Rick Smith right square in the ass.

    Solid vet receiver....I'll take him over Jacoby Jones any day of the week. At least he can run a freaking route. I guarantee you that if he's targeted 11 times, he'll have more than just one damn catch. :rolleyes:

    He's a stop gap for sure (like a one year rental) so that conditional pick better be a low one.

    I've liked this guy for years now. Let's hope he still has something left in the tank and plays with some fire under his butt...don't know what happened with the Jets, but there's something dysfunctional happening there in the background, and maybe DMase will have something to prove to the Ol' Toe Sucker.

    Also sounds like we'll be hearing more about Aj's injury in the near future.... not good news.

    One of the biggest upsides in this trade is his awareness. Very good at situational football, and I am sure that is what Kubiak wants from him.

    Or maybe they just figured out how bad Jacoby sucks.
