Nice setup, but I gotta know who's on the O-Line before I can get too excited about it.


Well I'm just takin a stab at it but I'm guessing gross, silatolu, kalil, FA, Rookie

Also this could be taken more as "we are looking at FA WR's" than "We are looking at signing Mike Wallace".


Could just as easily be Steve Breaston lol.


Yea I think what he was saying is that they would like another vertical threat for Cam.We tried to sign Jacoby Jones last year but he opted for the Ravens.Gettlemen would have to work some magic to afford Wallace

Wallace, Bowe, Jennings, Freaking Santa Claus I dont care. I'm just excited about the possibility that we would approach the WR position with the same fervor that we have LB or RB in the past.


Agreed.

I am just hoping that their "warm temperature" does not end up beign another Legadu or Murphy type of signing.

Either bring in a legit guy or go WR in the draft.

Yea, the way I read his comment was definitely not that we're going after Wallace but that we will be going after a receiver. And I agree Hatter - assuming Doodoo and Murphy were Rivera's requests, I sure as hell hope he doesn't think third time is a charm dumpster diving for WRs.

What about adding a top TE to the passing game? Maybe that is what he meant by "warm." OR maybe that this is the time of year everyone has a poker face and misleads the media.

I think we will add a free agent WR, but I hope it is not Wallace. I think the WR we bring in is on a roster now and will be cut during the next 2 weeks.

I agree. I commented about that a week or so ago that no one was talking about this....

1. Cam throws to TE routes well

2. He plays best in 2 TE sets (offense as a whole does since Cam has been here).

3. There are a lot of very good FA TEs that can be had at a good price.

Chud was running read option early in the year in 3 WR sets which also hurt. Read option wasn't the issue...how we ran it was. It works out of run or pass sets....not so much out of passing sets.

i completely agree with this. always felt Cam would be better with a two tight end set.

I agree with those who think we will go after a WR but who that will be remains to be seen. Wallace maybe one of teh receivers who go early in free agency picked up by someone who has lots of money to spend and feels they are one wide receiver away from being a contender. I don't think that is us. Plus I doubt we shoot all of our free agent cash bullets on one guy. We will be active in free agency I suspect but whether we find our guys before the draft or after isn't set in stone. Gettleman said he would use free agency to shore up needs so we could go BPA in the draft. He didn't say we would try and lock all of the guys we need before the draft. We may try but I don't think we overpay this time which is why we are restructuring deals rather than dumping players. We don't want 10 holes to fill.
Of course this is all speculation but thought I would weigh in to temper all the thoughts we would go buck wild in free agency the moment it starts.

I think if Carolina really wanted Mike Wallace....they wouldn't be waiting to make some of their more obvious cap moves.

In line with that thinking:

http://profootballta...rom-the-giants/

I'm sure he's been mentioned before, but it almost makes too much sense not to happen. Good blocker, good enough receiver, as the director of pro personnel Gettleman would have been the one making the recommendation to bring him to NY, shouldn't break the bank. If I had to bet on one single FA acquisition happening it'd probably be him.

Schefter just said that Wallace will likely be the #1 FA overall and if not overall, he is definitely considered the #1 WR available, and he'll obviously want to be paid as such.

I was never in favor of signing him unless he settled for like 5mil per, but for everyone else, there you have it... He's not coming here in case you didn't know that already.
