So Armanti has earned a roster spot..

I hope he turns into a legit Wideout but EVERY single offseason he's been hyped up during camp but then disappears. Remember that big preseason game he had and everyone was convinced he had finally turned the corner? Until he does it in the regular season I'm not going to get excited.

If Hixion can't get healthy and Ginn keeps having drop issues, Edwards will not only have a roster spot and playing time but he would be the slot receiver for the team.  Good for him, but any of that to happen he has to keep it up and show up in the preseason games.

Smith is the slot receiver for this team.

He has to get playing time in the regular season before it can happen in the regular season. Last season was really the first time he's gotten that. Should get even more this season though, he just has to make something of that playing time.

Why are the people on this forum always negative?

Why can't it be possible he's finally put it together.

Because some people choose to live in the real world.

Rooting for a player on this team to be successful? The nerve of these fans here....

And by real, you mean your negative, pessimistic, warped view.

Let me make one point explicitly clear: the "hype" on Armanti in previous years centered on whether he was actually catching the ball or outrunning guys; right now, it's the little things he's doing that show a lot more promise.

He's taking contact without it making him alligator arm.

He's running the right routes the right way without telegraphing them.

He's getting targeted much more often and in a variety of roles.

I'm not saying he'll be our day one #3 receiver, but the improvement in his game is obvious.

Hey man, I wish Armanti the best and hope like hell he's the next coming of Steve Smith.  Just saying the secondary might make receivers look better than they are...

Or maybe, just maybe, AE has turned himself into a reliable WR? Nah, that couldn't be it.

Throw out a backhanded compliment, then a halfassed dig at the secondary. But hey, you got that troll thingy going for ya. Throwing out ridiculous statements to elicit a response. It worked, nice job.

nothing is guaranteed, especially with armanit. but I think the general consensus is that he has played well enough to be on this team for the next year. personally i'm happy for him. yes the pick was terrible. everyone knows and can agree to this.  but you can't blame Armanti for that and he has definitely worked his ass off to be a part of this team. He may never be a superstar, but the guy has got great work ethic (which is something every human being can appreciate).

AE is Jason Carter 2.0. Lights it up every offseason only to never be heard from again when the lights are on.
