WR - Rod Gardener, pending release from the Redskins. We need another vet WR going into this year. My biggest concerns with Keyshawn and Glenn are not ability but availability, as injury to either should be of concern to us at this stage in their careers. I think Gardener is a serviceable back-up who could be signed for 1-year deal.
I think so.
A WR just became a priority for Dallas with the injury to Morgan in the mini-camp.
A #3 WR like Morgan that has sholuder problems that will require surgery after the season means he won't make it thru the season and if he does, he'll be 50% effective.at best. Have the surgery and clean it up for next year. This is June for crying out loud. He might be able to make it back before the season is over.
Look at what JuJo did in '04.
And if he goes ahead and plays, he sure won't be the go-to guy they had envisioned him to be if BP thinks he's going to cough up the ball when the DB's go for his shoulder to separate him from the ball.
This was a thin area of the team before his injury. It's now a gapping hole. Especially if either Glenn or Key don't recover fully or have a re-injury.
This position smacks of the CB Achilles heel problem of last year.
Here we are, knowing a key guy we need to rely on is dinged and has a shakey hold on his position. And we know it well in advance of TC and need to find another guy,
Will BP play the cards he has like last year or will he ask for some new cards to try to save his hand...?
We will see what he learned from last year. I'll bet Bledsoe has been talking BP's ears off about this since the Morgan injury.
"Find me another WR"..please.
