i know people here are desperately hoping somebody will get cut that can reinforce the position, but WR is different from positions of years gone by where weve waited until cuts to bring guys in.
this isnt like DT. The position has so many slots and is so hungry for talent that teams dont part with talent there. Teams look for at least 4 good players they can stick out on the field and then seek depth/ST. It wasnt so long ago we ourselves were talking about keeping 6 or even 7 guys.
Most of the guys youre seeing getting cut now are the guys who couldnt make their way onto that. Fringe 5/6 players who couldnt crack the lineup. There is the possibility an older player gets cut to make way for a younger pair of promising legs, but then weve got to listen to the parade of "ugh we'd have to pay him though? Like in money?" Or "uuuuughhh old players like anquan boldin/steve smith/ andre johnson are sooooo ollld and done why are there no flawless players being released in second cuts sooooo annoying i really hoped oakland would part with amari cooper"
At this point, maybe youre looking at a 2013 type scenario-where Gettleman adamantly and stubbornly refuses to do anything about a weak position until injuries and desperation force his hand and the team is better off for it.
Man, Rod Streater looks mighty tempting to a needy team like us. He's too good to get cut out in a numbers game, but he could possibky had for a middling asking price with Oaklands deep and rebuilt WR corp. (How crazy is it that they signed a high profile target AND drafted one high to go with their young QB? Dont they know this aint madden? Talk about overreacting blah blah blah.)
