Out of the 3 pass catchers we’ve been linked to, which one makes the most sense?
You always have to take these reports with a grain of salt, but we’ve been linked to Tyler Eifert, A.J. Green and Emmanuel Sanders within the last week or two.


On paper, we can make Sanders and Eifert work financially, but it would be a lot harder to make Green work. Personally, I don’t think Green is worth it just because of the capital it would take to get him and he hasn’t played a game this year. On the surface, Sanders seems like the most obvious. He’s the healthiest, though not the cheapest. And I think fits more of what we want from a #2 WR than Green, though Green is more talented.

But I’d argue Eifert wouldn’t be a bad option either. His health is his biggest flaw. The dude can play but his health is a HUGE red flag but two TE sets with Cook and Eifert is enticing and would allow us to stay in run formations much more to keep defenses honest and make them keep LBs on the field so we can take advantage of some mismatches.

I’d still prefer Sanders but I think Eifert, if we didn’t give up a lot, could be a cheap but valuable asset. I’m sure this is all smoke and we won’t end up trading for anyone but I’d personally love to see us grab another TE like Eifert and run some heavy two maybe even three TE sets and pound the ball more with Kamara and Murray.

Which pass catcher makes the most sense?

We would be better off just bringing Dez in at this point than any of those three. They were saying he should be ready by mid October.

Cook has sucked every game since being here. Hill is alright. And there is no one else behind them

Grabbing Eifert gives you a tight end that can catch the ball consistently when thrown his way. Plus, it would keep him away from the Patriots, who are also interested.

Trequan and Ginn are capable when we have drew.

Has Eifert ever finished a season uninjured?

Eifert is always injured and has missed a huge part of the past 2 seasons. With that said, his cap hit in a trade would be under $1.4M. Bc of his injury history, I'd imagine it would give a lower trade value with minimal risk.

In perspective, Sanders would cost $5.5M & Green would cost around $8.25M.

All 3 are on the last year of their deals.

Didn't suck last week and will only get better. People are so quick to bail on new players at the beginning of the season. There is a reason the term mid season form exists.

As of now, Sanders. The best ability is availability. I want nothing to do with Eifert - can't rely on him.

Fits in then as we don't have a TE we can count on now.

Grab him and ES over Green.

Emmanuel Sanders would be a dream come true

Perfect for our offense and it would keep him away from the Pats

I hope if we have even a slight chance that we jump all over the opportunity

Give the Bengals a 6th for Eifert and call it a day.

Antonio brown.
Structure the contract tzo that he steps out of line he's cut. He has to have a team chaperone at all times.
.
Outside of hime being a complete idiot off the field he is a monster on it.

AB has some kind of mental issue that he needs help with before he plays again. Something went very wrong in that guys head.

frick that

Eifert has only played 11 games over the last 3 seasons. It's almost comical how often he gets injured.

He has missed over half of the games in his career.
