We have all been lamenting our current wr/te situation. BUT, we have overlooked the fact that thompson, who can also kick and punt return, will return very soon. He could be back by the browns game.
this guy was envisioned to be a slot guy with SPEED.Something stokely sorely lacks and was the reason for an interception in the broncos game and offensive struggles. I really believe torrey and marlon on the outside with thompson being the main slot guy will be enough until jacoby comes back.
Stokely can rotate in and so can mellete(he should be active every game at least until jacoby returns)
Now, deonte won't be 100 percent from the get go, considering he has been recovering for a month.But his speed and reportedly improved route running should open the middle for us.
However deonte can't share his speed with dallas,so te is still a work in progress. regardless, deonte in the offense next week will make us much better and will closely resemble the offense we had with jacoby in the slot.
I can't wait to check the injury report to see if he recovers. Deonte will be a real difference maker. Let's go ravens!
