Johnson is in the best spot Chad Johnson (http://www.nfl.com/player/chadjohnson/2504651/profile) will have the best season of the three. He will be the primary target for whoever is playing quarterback for the Miami Dolphins (http://www.nfl.com/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA), and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is wise enough to design schemes that play to Johnson's strengths. Johnson might need to run more intermediate routes, but he's good in that role. He also doesn't have to face the gauntlet of strong cornerbacks awaiting Moss and Owens in the NFC West.

No one will thrive, but Johnson will top the others I don't see any of these receivers putting up big numbers this year, though I think Chad Johnson (http://www.nfl.com/player/chadjohnson/2504651/profile) will have the best season of the three. Randy Moss (http://www.nfl.com/player/randymoss/2502220/profile) will be fighting a few factors in San Francisco that will probably limit his output. First, I don't think the 49ers (http://www.nfl.com/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF) will get away from their run-first philosophy. The Niners also have tight end Vernon Davis (http://www.nfl.com/player/vernondavis/2495826/profile) and receiver Mario Manningham (http://www.nfl.com/player/mariomanningham/1030/profile), two pass-catchers who are better than Moss and should see more targets than him. As for Terrell Owens, I am more concerned about his ability to stay healthy this year than I am about the other two receivers. He could end up having a good year, though, because fellow Seahawks (http://www.nfl.com/teams/seattleseahawks/profile?team=SEA) receiver Sidney Rice (http://www.nfl.com/player/sidneyrice/2495718/profile) has been prone to injury and whoever is quarterbacking in Seattle will need somebody to throw to. Johnson will have the best campaign, however, for a few reasons. I think the Dolphins (http://www.nfl.com/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA) will throw the ball the most frequently out of all three teams. I also believe Johnson has the best chance of the three to stay healthy. Based on what I've heard out of Dolphins (http://www.nfl.com/teams/miamidolphins/profile?team=MIA) training camp and what I saw last season, he can still get open and catch the ball.

The problem all 3 have is that none of them have a QB throwing to them of the caliber that they did last time they made an impact. Moss had Tom Brady and Owens and Chad had Carson Palmer. But I will bet on Moss. just because he is the greatest WR talent ever to suit up, and apparently still has speed. I do expect a good season from Chad though.

Moss might be more motivated now than he was in Tennessee. He couldn't have looked more disinterested in a Titans uniform. TO? The guy got cut from a ****ty arena team, I don't see him doing much of anything.

Moss is looking good in camp, according to reports. looks like he's doing better than ochocinco.

T.O. just tweeted that he's been cut. Any interest here? We are already a joke - might as well bring him in.

All of them have talent, but....

They're just not that smart. They just don't "get" football. They think
things should be given unto them, because they are better.

Welp.

I'm waiting for the "Inside The Lines" report on all of them where we are
all expected to feel sorry for them.

Poor guys. They never had a chance.

No, I don't think we need anyone Braylon Edwards beat out.

The best chance is Moss but I don't think he will be anything special with Alex Smith throwing him the ball.
