I will mention that we did Trade for Olsen and picked up Shockey in FA and both did well, Olsen still being here.. but that still does nothing for our huge "?" at WR in 1-2 more years.. So my question is - Do we use #14 in this years draft on the best WR available this year or push the problem under the rug again?

If Smith is planning to hang it up soon, I'd expect the team to know and the incoming GM to take that into account in the next draft or two (depending on when he wants to hang it up).

There doesn't seem to be a strong WR candidate early in the 1st round. If we somehow trade down, then it could become a possibility.
Smitty still has it in him and I am sure he knows that. All the rumors of him retiring are likely based around frustration. I still see him around next year.

you want to see steve decide to hang around for a few more years? give him a season where he's playing out of the slot position and catching ten passes a game because he's no longer being double covered. i honestly believe if you threw a greg jennings type receiver outside and put lafell as the flanker and run steve primarily out of the slot (or really just WR2 or WR3 depending on the formation) he'd eclipse his 2005 season in terms receptions and total yardage.
