He'd be an adequate replacement for LaFell IF he could stay healthy.  I have a feeling they are keeping Ginn and drafting a big bodied blocking type receiver though.  Might keep Hixon around since he's cheap.

Better than anything we're used to.  

 

And btw, Baldwin is a RFA. That's not happening.

He was statistically better than Lafell is all aspects.  

 

I dunno if Rice will ever be healthy but he is big and would be an upgrade if our plan of getting Nicks doesn't work.

Yeah, and Ginn only had two receptions in two years.

I'd take him in a heartbeat if he came cheap.  He's a great talent when healthy.

Seattle was (is) a run-first team. Wilson was in his rookie year, and you failed to mention the 7 TDs. Not saying that we should talk to him, but you have to take everything into account. That 748 yards, to be exact, was more than any of our WR did this past year.

 

I would have to think that provided he can stay healthy, which is a huge question, Rice may have more upside than any WR we have at this point in regards to production.  Plus he'd be a nice compliment to Smitty and Ginn, and give Cam a big target.

Never done squat without Favre throwing the ball.

 

Rice's first flashes in the NFL came with Tavaris Jackson at QB. His other QB's were awful at getting him the ball.

He's from the Carolinas I believe. All together now..........hometown discount

 

We share the same hometown of Gaffney, SC. I have always heard that we were ready to draft him but he went a pick before we picked in the second round that year, I'd love to bring him here for cheap and let him prove he is still worth the big money.
