this. i don't think we are signing him with the exception of being a real weapon at receiver. i think he will see time on the field as a WR, but only as a deep threat guy and probably not very often. but that is secondary to the real usefulness he has and that is as a return guy. he's the first real return threat we've had in years. of course blocking has to improve, but we've just had projects and rookies returning the ball and aside from one or two miracle returns against STs that were even worse than ours (and i'm looking at pilares) it's just been pathetic who we've asked to do the job.
i think we got an upgrade at ST coach...not rodgers, but dehaven who is the asst. ST coach for now. that guy knows how to put STs together. i suspect he'll have the job by the end of the year. it's a joke that he's got to be rodgers assistant but whatever....point is that we've got better coaching and a better returner. blocking should be better. results should be better.
another FA or an early draft pick. the #3 isn't on the roster right now.
I am not in total agreement with you. He wanted to go to a team with the opportunity to play WR. I think the slot/#3 position will be his to lose. I think Rivera and Shula will give him every opportunity to be that 3rd WR we need.
