break out the pair of scissors next off season. $8M for monitored practice time for our Receiver #2? pass


That isn't how it works

Is Colston worth 4.3 million next year? That is how much cutting him would save. 5.4 million in dead money compared to only 2.7 the next year

What would an equal receiver cost us?

I would encourage you to look into this statement because it isn't true.

he had the highest deep ball rating of his career this year. 15 tds 2 ints

His accuracy % dropped this year, but we had oline and WR problems.

He's still has the best stats over the last few seasons

re: Colston's practice time will have to be monitored again this season


quote:

Colston set four-year lows in catches (75), yards (943) and touchdowns (5) last year while also watching his YPC sink for the third straight season.


2006- 70 catches 1,038 yards 8 TD 14.8 YPC
2007- 98 catches 1,202 yards 11 TD 12.3 YPC
2008- 47 catches 760 yards 5 TD 16.2 YPC
2009- 70 catches 1,074 yards 9 TD 15.3 YPC
2010- 84 catches 1,023 yards 7 TD 12.2 YPC
2011- 80 catches 1,143 yards 8 TD 14.3 YPC
2012- 83 catches 1,154 yards 10 TD 13.9 YPC
2013- 75 catches 943 yards 5 TD 12.6 YPC

okay, so I was wrong.

but looking at those numbers I mean, I don't think there is some huge concern there. His YPC weren't the lowest in the last 4 years like they said. That would be 2010.

I think he'll still be about a 70 catch guy this season coming up unless a new WR that gets drafted really bursts onto the scene or Stills catches about 10-20 more passes than he caught last year which is totally possible.

the only stat lines that he really fell in were yardage and TD's. But having a huge redzone target like Graham who is damn near unstoppable at times to compete with? Yeah, I can see why those might have dipped you know.

Cooks won't fall to 27 and it looks like Beckham may not fall to 27 either.

I'm not afraid to say it either. Odell's got huge hands and has the ability to go up at the highest point and snag the ball. He didn't always make the play at LSU, but he definitely put himself in position and wasn't afraid to do it.


Getting him confused with Jarvis Landry. Who I would love.

Speaking of djax if the eagles cut him should we? I heard Heath Evans mention on NFLN that he will be a perfect fit with Sean and fills a need.


Absolutely. Heard Benson and Goodell have a secret agreement to give the Saints additional cap space to cover Jackson's $10.5M contract.
