I would welcome this and not worry about WR in the draft.

Honestly why go after WRs who played as back ups. We already have avg WRs. We need a star WR that produce. Don't know much about these 2 guys. But why waste time and money on 2 guys who are no better then the guys we have the current roster. Pass.

We have a star receiver that produces.

What makes you think these guys aren't better than Louis Murphy and company? You do know Hixon and Barden have been buried in a stellar Giants WR receiving corps.

I had Hixon for a little while in my fantasy season last year. Had a couple decent (dare I say, legit) games IIRC. Couldn't hurt, for the right price. Got to remember who they were behind in the pecking order at a beasty Giants squad...

If these two can be had for cheap, bring them on down. Ramses would be a ideal 2nd reciever for Cam with his height, and he's showed promise, and Hixon has been good in spot duty.

Yeah they were backups, but they were behind Victor Cruz and Nicks(either of which would be our #1 WR of the future if they were here). If we could get them both, it would give us the flexability to go for one of the trench guys with our 1st and even 2nd round picks.

The only good game that I remember Barden having last year was against us and I'm not sure that Hixon is better than Murphy.

I'd be all for it. Move on from Murphy and cut Edwards. Still a big gamble though imo.

Why would we go after two unproven guys with no ties to us when we have steady development and improvement out of lafell who we drafted? Change for the sake of change? That always works.

Also, what has Pilares done for everyone to lose faith in him?

He's done nothing to cause everyone to lose faith in him.

Well for me...when I saw him trying to start a fight at montford against a skinny 150 lb frat kid

I'd rather have real pros on the team

I think the better question is what makes you have faith in a reciever who's going into his third year in the league and has 42 yards and 1 TD total? And the majority of that is off one catch?

What has burned this franchise for years is filling the roster with late round guys that we hope one day develop and never do(see: every WR we've drafted now named Lafell/Smith, every cornerback convert we drafted and moved to safety etc etc).

Hixon and Barden have both actually produced in the NFL, we can't keep a WR corps with the Armanti Edwards and Pilares of the world, who are average at best KR, and who's career stats combined wihth 5 years combined in the league are less then Barden's one game against us.

Who said anything about ditching on LaFell? We are looking for cheap guys who can fill out the rest of our receiving corps (3rd, 4th and 5th on the depth chart). Are we not sick of guys like Murphy and Naanee losing us games because they can't catch easy passes?

Look at the recent teams that have been in the superbowl or teams that are year to year contenders. For the most part we aren't looking at teams with top tier WR tandems (like the Falcons), most of them have a well rounded squad of reliable receivers with differing skill sets.

Examples:
New England
New Orleans
Green Bay
Indianapolis (Post Marvin Harrison)
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
Houston
San Francisco

Exceptions:
New York Giants (they did acquire Cruz risk-free and Eli has shown even with Cruz and Nicks out he can be equally productive)

Indianapolis (With Marvin Harrison)
Arizona
