He wants to be 100% healthy so he has a shot at hooking up with another team next year. He'll rehab his foot all season long on the Jets dime.

    I think Braylon tweeked his knee and may be the odd man out.

    Speaks more to the lack of talent at WR here than anything else.

    Unless Hill steps up and keeps that ball off the ground.

    We're in a good position. ESPECIALLY if the above happens!

    I always liked this guy in Cleveland. Seemed to make big time plays at times but then disappeared for a few games. He is still young. My question or concern really is why was he cut so quickly in Jacksonville?

    Jacksonville doesn't have the money and he was do a new big contract.

    Agreed... Is this guy just a slightly older version of Hill? Athletic but drops?

    Much more of a possession receiver.

    Looked very promising during his first two seasons in Cleveland.

    I agree with the Cotchery comparison. The kid has great hands and is a refined route runner.

    Seems to differ from a lot of the scouting reports prior to the draft - hopefully he turns out to be a performer!

    Hell, one of the big knocks against Aaron Rodgers coming out was that he had questionable arm strength. Fast forward to today and Rodgers has arguably the strongest arm in the game.

    They run variations of the WCO, Bill Walsh created the WCO offense in Cincinnati for his weak armed QB.

    I believe he had some very serious concussion problems. Didn't Harrsion from Pittsburgh destroy him with a head shot at one time?

    West Coast offense or not, no denying that Rodgers has one of the strongest arms in the league, if not the strongest.

    Your definitely right about the origin of the WCO and it was created basically out of necessity for weak armed QBs to become much more effective...... but that doesn't mean a guy with a friggin laser for an arm like Rodgers or Cutler cant run it effectively as well.

    Didn't say they can't, in fact much better.

    I like the sound of Mohamed Massaquoi and Ben Obomanu a lot better than Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes. It's 2013 people, Mark Sanchez has gotten progressively worse and will be gone next year- time to move forward.

    Best thing about the signing is that it solidifies the consistency in Idzik's fundamental approach to managing this team. Establishing competition at all positions. I like that.
