What's the bigger need right now? DT or WR if we add Hixon. Def N?T. tell me if I'm wrong

I won't.

Hixon would be a very nice addition to this team. Btw, what happened to Devery Henderson? has he signed w/anyone?

This dude is better than Lafell imo and would be a great addition to the team.

If we sign Hixon, then I think we can kiss our chances of drafting a WR in the first round goodbye. We've already got Pilares, Adams, Smith, Gettis, LaFell, Bryant, Ginn Jr, and Edwards.

I wouldn't mind parting ways with Gettis, Edwards, and Pilares to make room.

I think he's like a Jason Avant. A good asset but obviously not going to be your 1 or 2.

Great concentration on the difficult catches. We can use that for those occasional times when Newton gets into a streak of "general vicinity" passes.

Got away with a push or two in there. I think Moose used to call that "veteran advantage" :lol:

One amusing note: He did Steve Smith's "spin the ball" celebration at one point, appropriately after a 37 yard catch against the Falcons.

If they're satisfied he can stay healthy, worth a shot.

Would laugh my ass off if they signed Hixon and Barden.

For the record, I disagree with the notion that more receivers signed automatically means no possibility of drafting a receiver in Round One.

What can I say Chuck? If you think you 'know' that one of the top DT's will be there, you're being tunnel visioned. Players get grabbed earlier than expected every year. Aye, I've said my part.

Smith and Lafell are literally the only receivers on the roster with total job security.

well poo a 6 minute highlight video is good enough for me. Outside of smitty our wr's cant get more than a minute highlight video lmao

Someone should make a 6 minute video for Lafell

He was underrated last season. 677 yards with only 14 games played as a #2 receiver isn't bad especially with a TE on your team with over 800 yards.

I can't believe you guys still believe in Gettis. He had a mediocre rookie season on a really bad team. Someone had to get targets and he made a few catches. He then sat out for 2 years with an injury Adrian Peterson only needed 8 months to heal from. I don't think he's the incredible athlete and worker you guys think he is.

If Armanti makes the team I will be happy because it means he earned it. He doesn't have Marty the Guardian Angel anymore. He did make a few plays for us last season, it wasn't 100% bad, more like 75%.

I think Hixon is a nice player with good measurables. The wild card is his health. I feel like Gettleman knows him better than we ever will and he obviously has interest.

Joe Adams is guaranteed nothing. He was worse than Armanti last year, really, he was.

There are tons of variables but regardless of Hixon we could definitely draft a WR in the first two rounds. Personally I feel like both lines are a bigger need.

Color me happy if we sign 2 more WR, and spend at least an early and a late round pic on 2 more.

If we get Hixon that would be great. Insta-upgrade from what we had in Murphy. BUT I do not want a Hixon signing to mean we aren't picking WR in the 1st round
