In looking at the receiving numbers for our team it seems Bryant could have easily replaced Edwards, Barnidge, Pilares, Hartsock and Adams combined. Combined they have 23 Targets with 16 receptions for 278 yards.

The Pilares hate in this thread is strong... WTF???

Dude made plays damn near every time he touched the ball. I think some of you just looked up the stats on our WRs and ignored the fact dude was on IR for half the year.

Agreed he was a decent KR (Not really elusive but he gets the job done) and when he was in at WR and got the ball he made plays

From profootballweekly: "Does not have a pro work ethic."


Hopefully this changes because obviously he has the physical attributes to be a beast.

This, I'm questioning why we resigned Nelson Rosario though... Also since this is brought up don't know if yall know but Jared Green is a Dallas Cowboy we let him walk


Well, not exactly. We didn't let him "walk", Dallas signed him off of our practice squad. Any team can sign any player from any practice squad in the league, so long as they sign him to the active roster, and there isn't a thing that the original team can do about it.

True.. But we resigned Bryant, Rosario, and Hixon to contracts before Dallas signed him... Wouldn't we have resigned Green as well?

There's a million things more that go into being a receiver than just having measurables. If he couldn't dominate at the lower levels it either speaks to an inability to use his gifts or an unwillingness to work at developing them.

Reminds me of a guy on our local high school squad that had five inches on everyone and was an athletic freak but could be shutdown with the simplest of press coverages because he hated contact.
