    At first I thought to myself "you dumbass go back to bed.  You're obviously hallucinating and just need more time in bed"
    Then I clicked the thread.

    How on Earth are they already trying to unload someone they just drafted high in 2014?

    I'm not advocating doing nothing so I don't get that angle.
    I am advocating not signing every WR off the scrap heap because maybe they're secretly bionic.  I am specifically advocating not signing *this* receiver off the scrap heap because *before* his leg problems he was an undersized receiver with average speed who had trouble in the following areas according to the scouting reports Google told me I should read: securing catches in space / when a CB presses him and he has to break away and get back into his route.  
    He just wasn't all that good BEFORE he was constantly hurt.  
    I WOULD like to add a receiver if one becomes available who might be at the end of a career who has shown consistency and reliability which we need.  I would also not be opposed to a trade for a known quantity higher quality receiver (yes picks - I know player for player trades are unheard of outside Madden).  I would not like to add a receiver who has potential but is average at best and has no NFL body of work to speak of.  Now is not the time to take a flier on every available body - we HAVE available bodies we can take a flier on who are pretty much in this guy's strata.

    I don't see how signing a broken down receiver is going to help us.  We do this every year - every time someone gets cut who plays a position where we're struggling people start talking about signing them...full speed ahead damn the man sign ALL the [insert position here].
    To me this is the kind of move you make if you already have solid receivers and you want to see if you can add a weapon on the cheap (thus can absorb the hit if he ends up hurt or is simply terrible now).  It's the exact opposite of the kind of move you make if your receiver group is already weak and you're looking for someone to consistently contribute.  The team with an already weak receiver group has a much smaller margin for error and thus "it can't hurt" quickly becomes "not only can it hurt but it can be a total disaster".  
    Roster spots aren't unlimited - there's a cost in at the very least someone else who could be in that spot for every "it can't hurt" guy that lands here.

    There's just no chance I'd go for this.
    KB is an amazing talent and we're certainly worse for not having him but Bell couldn't block a sleeping baby for more than about a second.  The best receiver in the world is no good if your QB is running for his life because your left tackle is less effective than a cardboard cutout of an actual block.

    There are a lot of things in football that annoy me.  Lord knows I like to complain about them.  High on that list: rookies who get some stupid nagging injury in camp then spend the whole season nursing said stupid nagging injury while we sit around and wonder how good they could be if they weren't broken out of the box.
    On the bright side we're going to get really good at what-could-have-been here this season.  We're already pretty solid but we can up our hypothetical game to god-like at this pace.

    Oh come on - at least tell us who we should be ridiculing for being a shithead.
    Did they join before or after people jumped all over Dan Morgan when he tried to participate?
