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.

LOL.

 

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.

Would not want him back for the sole reason that if we drafted Matthews or Benjamin and lafell got the #2 WR spot over one of them just because Rivera likes him lol Edit: only kinda serious but I feel he's had his chance and done little to nothing with it Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using CarolinaHuddle mobile app

Hixon's one catch was better than a seasons worth from Lafell

Brandon had his shot when Smitty went down. Instead, it was McNutt who showed more promise in a failed redzone conversion.

step 1: let him test free agency

step 2: let him realize no one else wants to pay him

step 3: lowball him

step 4: ???

step 5: profit

We need targets...blocking is effort. I'm sick of seeing drives stall bc of dropped passes. Every receiver needs to be a threat. LaFell took a lot of steps last year but idt he's worth more money at this point.
