    It's Jon'Vea Johnson time! ... If they can get those drops fixed.

    Seriously, I would expect us to bring in a vet (possibly even Dez for cheap), but I'm excited to see Johnson's development.

    This sucks....any receiver who gets 800+ yards being the third option is LEGIT!!!

    Congrats to Cobb though.....you’ll be missed

    There's truth to elite QB making WR looking good. Those QBs are HOFers. Look at all the WRs that left NE and GB. What have they done? Yes, there are decent/good QBs who NEED good WRs. Players such as Dak is easy example. Young example is a poor one. Young was a running QB in Tampa Bay who finally understood to be successful he needed to learn art of passing. That's when he became great.

    Dion Branch anyone?
    Jordy Nelson?
    James Jones?
    Even Randell Cobbs.

    None of them became number #1 WR anywhere else.

    While I'm not a big advocate of Bryant possible return to Dallas, does anyone feel he will now be signed now that Cobb has left?

    Its a deep draft and I think they would have drafted a WR for sure, but I think Cobb's replace is someone from the McCarthy Mafia (TM) that played for him before. I would have gone 6MM per year for Cobb but it sounds like they clearly had someone else in mind and had no problem letting him walk. Plus they love those comp picks and have to lose players to offset the guys they are planning on signing.

    There was a lot of buzz around him early in camp. I only went to Oxnard one day but Johnson was one of those guys that was noticeably faster on the field than most of the other WRs in practice.

    I’m more shocked at the choice to replace Hopkins with Cobb than I am with Cobb moving on. I was not completely convinced he would be back for a team friendly deal just because MM was the coach and the success he had here last year. 9M a year is a little rich for my liking. Especially with the draft as loaded as it is. Younger and cheaper seems like the best plan anyhow.

    Cobb likely would’ve been back had Houston made him an offer he could not refuse

    Houston HC\GM Bill O’Brien is not making Texan fans happy with his questionable moves. You let Hopkins, one of the best WR in the game go for David Johnson? and now pay that kind of money to Cobb who while I think is good is no where close to what Hopkins is and what he means to their offense.

    The slot guy isn’t the 3rd option just because he’s not a starting WR outside. Often he is the #1 or #2 based on play design and having the #3 CB on him. Slot guy is a chain mover, especially if your TE is slow.
    Agree with others though. I wanted him back simply because he’s a known commodity, but he’s 30 years old; no way I’m going from 5 million a year to almost 10 for a guy on the downside.

    It also seemed clear that his drops were the result of concentration issues. Fast guys like to look for the home run before securing the ball sometimes. Hopefully, he'll get some good coaching to overcome that.

    Good comedy

    Jordy was a stud. Would have been a stud where ever he played. Jordy > Dez all day
    Cobb was good with Dak. Better than he had been with Rodgers since 2015
    Jones was never a 1(neither was Cobb)

    I liked Cobb while he was here but this WR class is stacked, and we still have Gallop. So to me this is a smart move by the team.
