He is every bit the WR that Ginn was....that is the point.
We still need a #1...but we have definitely shored up the #2 and #3 positions.
Cotchery/Underwood is probably better than LaFell/Ginn
I really like this signing.
I like this signing. As someone already pointed out he replaces Ted Ginn at the fraction of the price. Also Cotchery replaces stone hands Lafell. Now to find the #1 receiver via draft or FA.
yeah the loss of ginn has been effectively nullified with this
he'll take the top off defenses and open things up underneath
He's a year younger than Ginn, 27.
We've effectively upgraded and replaced 2/3 of our receiving corp. and still keeping it cap friendly.
One of McNutt, King and Pilares will compete for the #4 and our draft picks could round out the corp.
I don't necessarily feel that we need Jackson to fill out the aged Smitty's spot as our "#1" for this team to have similar production from the passing game this season.
Getting a playmaker at WR and adding a starter or two on the line could go a long way into getting this team back to the playoffs.
Underwood is Ginn 2.0 and he's gonna have an actual QB throw to him.
