  1. You can’t tell me there’s not an undrafted WR who’s 6’4 and 22 years old. I know the argument against it is he’s experienced. I rather find a younger WR with great size and a higher ceiling.

  2. How about we roll with our receivers and sign a center? It’s also possible there are not two starting caliber corners in this hodgepodge of back ups. But I thought we were set on receivers? No huh?

  3. Yeah I think we’re already good at receiver. I am higher on Smith-Marsette than some are I guess.

  4. So who are they cutting to bring these WRs in? Seems like they should focusing on other positions…

  5. His best season came in Miami after they picked him up from Kansas City. He opted out of the Covid year and hasn’t been the same player since. He used to be a pretty decent return man/slot but I’d say his most productive years are behind him.

    Your confusing someone having a higher ceiling just because their an unknown commodity.

    Well, Albert’s ceiling is known and it’s low, so yeah, an unknown UDFA with a lower salary is preferred.

  8. Relax folks, they’re looking for a punt returner not a WR. That’s why Westbrook declined the offer — he’d never see the field except on 4th down for the other team.;
