Chris Wesseling, nfl.com's Around the League Writer is reporting that Darrius Heyward-Bey may be on the roster bubble if he is unwilling to take a pay cut. He would certainly be an upgrade over some of our guys, I think. If we can get him on the cheap, do you think he's worth looking into?

The former No. 7 overall pick's $7.721 million salary comes with a $10 million cap charge. DHB has to realize he won't be in heavy demand on the open market after a disappointing season clouded by a scary concussion.

We already have our ex Raider scrub. Why would we want another?

We are gonna have some money. Why do some of you keep bringing up money?

DHB had a rough couple of years coming out, but it is arguable whether or not he has shown enough to be a WR1, but he is a WR2, no doubt. Adding a down-field vertical threat to Cam's long arm can lead to great things. Murphy was never considered a viable 1 or 2, really. That's why the Raiders let him go. If the Raiders let DHB go, it will be because he accounts for $10 mil towards their cap, not because he's crap.

This may be a good idea. Depends on who is out there, and whether or not it is deemed that they would make an immediate impact.

He's got a rep for having a very overinflated opinion of himself.

I got a feeling his salary demands are not gonna be closely tied to reality.

We will have the money, but I would rather it see it focused on both sides of the line first before even thinking about WR.

Glad someone gets it. No need in getting excited over free agents. We do every year only to be disappointed and having no cap room isn't going to help even if they decide to sign some. We'll probably do the usual, wait on cheap guys and that's it.

Won't be surprised if Brandon LaFell gets one more year to try and show he's up to the task.

1st of all, DHB has shown exactly as much as Louis Murphy did in Oakland. Also, sure, we'll have "some" money, but not enough to spend on scrubs like DHB..

I mean, I get it. It could, maybe, possibly, somewhere be worth bringing up.. but being perplexed as to why people think we don't have enough money for this guy and then saying he was that much better than Louis Murphy shouldn't jive well with most folk.

no. if we're going to spend money on a FA receiver i'd rather get somebody that's a safer bet.
