Joe Person already said we are not interested in bringing him back. Which means that we will bring him back.

I really like Brandon but when the first thing you use to describe a WR is his blocking ability, its probably time to move on.

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?

LOL.

Idiots: Derp, NO!

 

Rational Thinkers: Maybe if he's cheap. He's still an excellent blocker and a decent pass catcher.

 

Seriously, guys. Prove you know some football and recognize that every WR in the NFL isn't a number one. He's had better than 600 yards in every season except his rookie year.

Thank you. That's a consolidated version of my rationale. He get's way too much hate for what he does.

Sure, he's not going to command huge money elsewhere.

For sure. I think he gets way too much heat for what he doesn't do than what he actually does. People expected him to be Moose, and since Moose is a Top 100 WR of all-time, they were big shoes to fill. Why can't he produce 1,000 yards playing beside Smith? Well.... not many WR in the NFL could produce 1,000 yards as the second WR.

 

He's a good route runner, has good hands, and has sprung more big rushing plays than any TE on our roster. People just want a superstar. They're looking towards Pipe Dream Hakeem when we don't have the money and might even have trouble keeping Ginn.

Exactly. Very few teams have two #1 WR's (other than the Broncos, Falcons, maybe a couple more).

 

Who does Calvin Johnson play across? AJ Green? Andre Johnson (though Hopkins could develop well down the road)? No doubt we need WR help, but Shula runs a smash-smouth, ground-and-pound offense. A solid blocking #2 who puts up ok numbers isn't a bad asset, especially on a team-friendly deal.

Lafell knows the system bro, therefore he can help speed up the development of our rookie WR's. Veteran guidance goes a long way on the gridiron.
