We loved him coming out of the U.  They're also looking for big WRs.  Ha.  

Love the salary this year and next.

I'd trade Funchess for Dorsett. Maybe each guy needs a change of scenery. They want size, we need speed. Works out.

I'm not prone to being knee-jerk, but I don't think Funchess is going to do anything good enough here to justify starting.

A straight up trade for Funchess would be ok by me. Dorsett has enough speed to offer something different, and maybe Funchess would do better with a faster guy like TY Hilton.

I think the offensive line is going to give time provided they stay healthy. But our receivers have got to get open. KB doesn't need a ton of separation as big and strong as he is, but Funchess just seems to play small.

Kind of like Stewart and CMC, it's good to have guys that compliment each other. Simply put, that's not KB and Funchess.

You know damn well the Panthers aren't doing anything smart like that. We will go into the season with what we have and call it a day. Seriously though, offer Funchess, and if that's not enough, offer Funchess + a late round pick like they want.

Why would anyone want to trade for Dorset when we already have a few players very similar to him for a cheaper price? Curtis Samuel and Dameire Byrd are basically the same player.

Have you seen Dorsett play?

The guy is taken out of virtually every play. What good is speed if you can't handle an average sized DB with average strength?

I'm thinking more about how we used Ginn. Go routes, end arounds, etc. At worst, the defense would have to respect his speed.

The difference is Ginn could blow past DBs. Dorsett can't once someone gets their hands on him. Not the same thing at all. 

He also drops crucial passes. 

I could be wrong but I don't think Dorset can run routes worth a damn. He may have more speed but that's all he has. If the colts are willing to give up on a 1st round pick before his rookie contract is over then that should tell you something.

Sounds oddly like Ginn...

Ginn wasn't the most physical and his speed wasn't sudden. He also suffered from big time drops. The difference really lies in the type of offense we play versus Indy. We rely on the run and play action. Deep speed receivers do well in this scheme because securing the edge for corners defending the run is so important. This leaves opportunity for big plays if caught peeking in the backfield. 

Just like we gave Ginn a career when others couldn't, I believe Dorsett is a better fit here than he is in Indy.
