His 5 seasons prior to last year he played in 75 of a possible 80 games, so injuries were not an issue.

He's caught 50 passes twice, scored 5 receiving TDs once, and topped 500 yards receiving once.
There you go with them facts again
It may have been you, but someone pointed that out to me a few days ago
I actually felt like he had been injured a lot
After it being pointed out I looked and was actually surprised
Like many I was relying on assumptions rather than facts
I’m the first to admit I was wrong
He has actually been pretty healthy and fairly productive
The money is the only factor to me

Cool, hopefully he stay healthy and involved.
Ya,same here,but I just can't seem to flush that 2015 visual of Lance Dunbar hand grenading his casing-liner, like a top fuel rail dragster disintegrating outta' the hole shot,,, and I don't know why, with this talk of the #10,,o_O

I'm actually excited he's back. Low expectations, but there is potential if he can ever stay healthy. What he brings in the return game alone is worthwhile a roster spot.
Wait, I thought you were supposed to shame this decision/move. It would be the cool thing to do.

Don't really know what all the complaining is about...dude played in like 8 games (including playoffs) and made and handful game-changing plays (long bomb TD against NYG, big 4th quarter return against SEA in playoffs, punt return TD against SEA in playoffs (called back due to bad penalty), regular season TD against SEA, big catch against HOU) plus other small contributions pre-injury. I'm very okay with that production from a cheap 1 year deal player.

Is he going to all of the sudden become Tyreek Hill? No. Does he need to be for this contract to make sense? No.

Love what he can do with the football in his hands. But need that to be about 80 times per year not 14 like last year...The kid was built for track not football.
Or Tennis, Tavon would be a beast with a tennis racket in his hand.

I like our recieving core now. Cooper is a stud. Gallup is going to be a stud I feel this year. Hurns was a slot receiver in Jacksonville. I think he made a pro bowl at that spot if not he played well. Wilson was having a great offseason before he gothurt. He was mentioned more than Gallup last offseason for how he looked cat hung passes. I may be one of the few but I like Noah Brown, Noah Brown is like, Dez in training. He has the physicality like Dez had, he can go get a ball like Dez used to, if he run his routes better and use that size he could become scary. I think he could break out this season if he can improve his route running and show Dak he is dependable to make plays/catches.

This is on Moore to be more creative than Linehand using Austin more out of the backfield to keep defenses guessing.
I tend to agree with you on this but I keep thinking about why couldnt McVay get anything out of him.

Has been a colossal bust as a WR for his entire career.

29 years old and entering his 7th year in the NFL... and people are STILL waiting for him to "fulfill his potential".
This is exactly how I see him!
