Every year during training camp and preseason, teams will be letting go of good players to make room for others on their roster. To me, the WR position is the one in which we need the most help with this season. Undoubtedly, there will be capable wideouts being let go by other squads... and I think we should at least take a look at and possibly sign the best possible option for our team. We have plenty of possession receivers and a couple of potential deep threats (Graham, Easley, and maybe Donald Jones.) We should still be on the look out for a big bodied receiver with some speed to get down field. They should also have some strength to go up and beat a corner one on one. I have a list of guys that I think may be cut that could fit our team well. Let me know what you think and if you have other potential cuts you wouldn't mind us checking out.
Mike Sims-Walker- 6' 2" 212 lbs. 27 years old. Was a WR on the rise 2 years ago and has fallen off a little bit, but I believe he still has something left to give and would fit our system pretty well.
Braylon Edwards- 6' 3" 214 lbs. 29 years old. Another rising star that has fell off in the eyes of some. Edwards has some character concerns but could still be an effective deep threat, at least in my opinion. Had 900+ yards and 7 TD's in 2010 but had a rough year in San Francisco before getting cut.
On the "bubble" of being unemployed:
Jabar Gaffney (NE)- 6' 2" 200 lbs.31 years old. Reuniting with the Patriots after 3 pretty successful seasons with the Broncos and Redskins. A guy who averages around 44 receptions, 5-600 yards and 3 TD's a year could help our team. And he's been much better in the 2nd half of his career. Although, he is one of the most unlikely to be cut receivers on my bubble list, you never know who the Pats will cut considering they have the two monsters at TE, Welker, Lloyd and Branch.
Louis Murphy (OAK)- 6' 2" 200 lbs. 25 years old. With a young group of WR's on the roster (Murphy being one of them), this team will be cutting someone who's got some potential and word is Murphy could be that guy. Not counting last season, he has been relatively productive and could provide big play potential.
Maurice Stovall (DET)- 6' 5" 220 lbs. 27 years old. After never breaking 400 yards in 5 seasons with Tampa Bay, Stovall went to Detroit last seasons and only caught one ball.
Mike Williams (SEA)- 6' 5" 235 lbs. 28 years old. After being out of the NFL between 2008-2009, Williams stormed back in a comeback role for the Seahawks, catching 65 balls for 750 yards in 2010. Last season, he slumped back down to 18 for 236. He's obviously on the chopping block right now.
Others considered: Earl Bennett (CHI), Mardy Gilyard (PHI), Domenik Hixon (NYG), James Jones (GB), Devin Thomas (CHI), Ben Obomanu (SEA), Johnny Knox (CHI), David Gettis (CAR), Tiquan Underwood (TB), Danario Alexander (STL),
