It's a bit early but who would be your top candidates?  Not a number one but a solid number 2/3.  

 

Say we head into training camp and we see that only a few guys are legitimate contenders.  This is Caldwell's offense now and I see a need for 4-5 good receivers.  

 

1. Torrey

2.

3.

4.

5. Pitta

 

Jacoby/Doss/Thompson/Streeter.  Say only one or two work out for us.  We have a hole.

It's hard to tell who might even be on the market.  The only guys I see right now that are candidates to be traded are Nate Washington and Doug Baldwin.

I'll give my left arm, left kidney, left lung, & half my liver for Julio Jones.

I really think we'll be OK. I really do. I think we'll be just fine. I don't want to trade for anything but a LT. Peters, Monroe, & to a lesser extent Albert. I really don't want Albert, though. I hope Ozzie is on the phone with the Jaguars trying to exchange Oher & a draft pick for Monroe. I really, really do.

 

Part of the biggest reason why the Pats are so successful is because of the OL Brady has. Give Joe time, he'll pick you apart. We can use Ray Rice as a slot WR. People forget that. We also have Dennis Pitta. We can use Bernard Pierce as a RB, KJ as a TE, with Jones & Smith as WO.

I guess, if you guys don't have good arguments you would have to stick to bullying. :P

 

I don't think there are many good FAs left on the market. The best available WR left is Brandon Lloyd, who reportedly is a lockerroom cancer and is already 32.

 

Man, that Boldin trade screwed us over. I don't see the Ravens trading for a WR. At that point we would probably stick to the benchwarmers we already have.

I'd be uncomfortable if we entered the season with Jacoby as the number two WR. The rest of the WR's on the roster simply don't scare defenses like Anquan did. Not sure how our locker room will be without Ray and Ed gone, but I'd sign Lloyd immediately. I would still feel this way even if we drafted someone like Justin Hunter of Keenan Allen, but obviously we did not. I'm all for bringing Lloyd in.

How can you say the Boldin trade screwed us before we even played this season? way too  early to go crying like some sissy

I am willing to trade away the next three drafts for Megatron.

 

 

 

Is that enough?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Deonte Thompson grabs a wideout spot with stellar play in the

preseason .Oh yeah,he did that last year .

 

The slot position is anyone's guess. Tandon, maybe.

I have no idea who would even be available right now.  If we really want to bring in a veteran, I think our best bet is to wait until camp cuts and then snag one - that's how we got Houshmanzadeh.
