Bring back Lafell?

Not a lot of rumbling about this. Hear me out ...

 

Assuming Smitty is still around, re-signing Ginn, and drafting one or two WR's, should we consider bringing back Lafell on a team-friendly 1-2 year deal? Despite what everyone thinks, he knows the system, is a good blocker, and can help shepard in the new WR's. I don't see the harm, unless you think another FA WR is out there for a similar price tag that would serve a better role. What do you think?

Not unless we have to and it's cheap.

When Steve Smith was out, it should have been Lafell's time to shine, in a contract year no less, instead he disappeared. I've always liked Brandon, and wanted him to succeed here, but unless he's going to take a dirt cheap deal, let him walk.

Hell no. I honestly rather see Mcnutt over Brandon now.

Brandon lost me this season after years of making excuses for him.

the only reason I'd call up LaFell and ask him to come back is if he forgot something in his locker

I hate the way Lafell would disappear in games....especially considering he was never facing the opponents number one corner. I can't see him ever being more than a complimentary receiver on any team. Having said that, he knows our offense and if he's extremely affordable then I wouldn't be upset about him coming back. I personally think Ted Ginn is a higher priority and has more of a chance at making a bigger impact on our offense.

No, absolutely not.

Only if we still take a top WR in the draft and the guys we targeted in FA signed somewhere else. AND he signs no more than a 2.5 million dollar deal.

 

 

I like the LaFell and I think he is respected by the team but he is not what the team needs right now. He's good enough to be on a roster but is in no way Steve's successor.
