Wide Receivers on the roster

According to the Saints website:

Colston
Jarred Fayson
Chris Givens
Saalim Hakim
Lance Moore
Joe Morgan
Preston Parker
Roby
Andy Tanner
Nick Toon

How do we address this position. Needs upgrade. I know we need defense, but damn. That's a weak group.

I realize Jimmy Graham is a more of a weapon than any of them, but still

So you're ok with that receiving group?

Yep. But I'd be okay with trading Ingram for Megatron.

re: Wide Receivers on the roster
We haven't had a monster WR in years. Drew spreads the ball out too much for that. I do agree next year will probably be the draft we take a WR with a high pick, but I wouldn't discount Toon and Morgan. They seem to be this generations Colston and Henderson if they can develop.

re: Wide Receivers on the roster
I'm not suggesting we spend the first round pick on a WR, trust me. But we will be in a bind if either Colston or Moore get hurt, which seems to happen for small stretches of time every season. Knock on wood. Hopefully this is the year Morgan breaks out. Wasting so much time on Adrian Arrington still pisses me off.

But with our cap situation, I think it will have to be through undrafted free agents. Or possibly a late rounder we have an eye on.

Those are your 4 deep. Maybe Tanner in the slot to backup Moore.

I'm comfortable with that.

Some of those guys will never see the field because of Graham, Watson, and Sproles.

My source tells me the Saints are quietly negotiating a trade for Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitz. It's looking pretty good....so far.

With all the damn problems on defense, you want to address an alleged shortfall of WR talent? Really?

How many yards did Brees throw for this past season? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Can we give Toon a chance to see the field first? He may surprise you.

The guy who surprises other teams this year is going to be Toon..if he can stay healthy. He is a big guy with great hands and possession skills. Keep an eye on him for fantasy too.

re: Wide Receivers on the roster
I think people are really discounting Watson.

He should be a legitimate threat in the receiving game.

And who's to say we don't end up resigning Devery?
