    he wants to play in a warm weather city and he's pretty beast and would be amazing on our offense. Is there any way we can land him.. any way?
    If you can't tell he's one of the only guys i want... i know he's gonna cost but he's worth it

    I doubt it. He'll get big money somewhere.

    LoL, you must've been watching NFL total access. We have the warm weather down here, but they also said he would like to play on a good team with a good RB and a good TE thats 1/4. Highly unlikely and I dont think the Texans are willing to pay big money for a #2 WR.

    WR are deep in this draft and I think we may go after someone in the 2nd round or maybe early first and hope they can step up. If not it'll be AJ, Gaffney and Armstrong im thinking as our starting 3. I dont think Bradford is coming back.

    I don't think the team is going to pay out huge money for two high dollar WR's with the cap the way it is. I believe we will continue to develop our drafted talent and possibly sign a lower salaried FA instead of spending too much at one position. We have to make this money spread over 22 positional starters. Look at the Colts. They may be flashy but while they spend all their money on offense and are tough to stop, they still can't win in the playoffs.

    I would love to see us get plex, but he'll want too much $$$. We may be able to get a WR like Jurevicius who was just released by TB so they could get under the cap.

    He was bad @$$ b4 the injury he suffered, but a season or so removed from that, he should be back to his old self. Any1 have an idea of how old he is, I don't like the idea of recruiting dudes on the verge of being old farts. Maybe the rockets can do that, but it dont work like that in the NFL.

    Just think Deion, Emit Smith, Michael Irvin, Vinny Testeverde and others of the same age all on the same team. They'd be worst than the 49ers, but would make for some nice leadership LoL, I'll giv em that.

    With Muhammad off the market, Burress is the #1 WR in free agency. He put up some decent numbers playing in Pittsburg who had a run first offense and while playing along side Hines Ward and Antwann Randle El, what I thought was one of the best WR corps in the NFL. Just imagine what he could do in a passing offense.

    If we go after a WR, which I think we will, I think we will be going after 1 thats fast and a lower key FA. Something like a Kevin Johnson, Travis Taylor.
