I also don't see how signing a guy to a 1 year 700K deal is going to stop us from going out and getting another WR if we deem it necessary.
I think we could still sign Terrell Owens as well. Actually, I am hoping we sign TO.
Listening to the Bengals coaches that watched his workout, it doesn't sound like Jones adds anything. I saw the Bengals should convert him to TE if he can block.
I'd like to see us go after Kevin Walter. (For the record, I have no personal biases for or against him when he was a Bengal. I'm only looking at his potential value over the next two years based upon what he's done the last two years.) He got lost in the shuffle last year. Schaub wasn't real comfortable with him in the Redzone like he was the year before. He had the highest catch percentage on the Houston staff, though. His catch percentage was also in the low 70's, one of the top-5 in the NFL. Houston's indicated that they are going to go with Jacoby Jones as a starter next year and not retain Walter if Walter gets a decent offer from someone. Walter is an Unrestricted Free Agent with 6+ years of service, so CBA or no CBA, he'll remain Unrestricted.

Walter was a fantasy stud for me two years ago. He would instantly become our 2nd best receiver, IMO. Love the way he plays football. He's a hard-nosed receiver.
I agree with Walter. A Wesley Welker type WR is what Carson needs if he does not have a TE to throw to. Someone he can count on for 3rd down.
They are not going to try a guy who is not that big to begin with and cannot really block at TE...when he was signed a s a WR. They already have one guy who appears useless as a TE for their system drafted last year.
TO is the kind of player that has already messed up teams with thicker skin than this one....him and Chad would be fun if they were winning but a nightmare if they are losing.
Just throwing it out there, but would anyone get behind signing the now free agent LT?
I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
It would be nice to have a short pass option considering Cedric can't really catch.
