O BaÂ´al, now your foes you must slay
Bobby Shaw will be fine as a THIRD WR. I wouldn't want him as the 2nd guy. But as a third he'll do what Reed did last year and get 400-500 yards. Josh Reed will put up 75 catches for 1000 yards or so opposite Moulds. Did we really need to spend 6 MILLION A YEAR ON a 2nd WR for an extra 200 yards? Tom Donahoe's assessment was NO WAY! The fact is that we couldn't afford to pay a 2nd WR 6 million a year with that much already invested in Moulds. In the age of the salary cap, you have to draft cheap talented replacements. That's why getting Josh Reed was such a great move in the draft.
Conversely we can afford Travis Henry and McGahee at the same time. Henry is making peanuts and McGahee was picked 23rd, not top 5.
