    Whatever Ireland decides is the best option, he should do the opposite.

    I do not see us getting Wallace, and Jennings will be a much cheaper option. We can get Jennings who knows the system, wont command as much money and for sure wont resign in GB because they are seeing so much more out of Jones and Cobbs now that they feel they can let him walk. GB has too many players to resign and WR is not their priority anymore.
    With Jennings and a good rookie (Hunter/Allen) we should be fine. Jennings, rookie, Hartline and Bess is a great WR line up. We will get a fresh Jennings coming off injury and sitting out this whole season, and he is a play maker, even if he lost a step he is still reliable and can put up good numbers. We dont need a Marshall type WR in this system, we need reliable good route running WRs.

    Draft all the way.
    I realize this, that is why I want us to draft on top of landing an elite WR in free agency, I'd like us to go for a 1st round WR talent.

    Well, I guess I don't view any of the FA wr's as ''stars.''
    Obviously I want ''stars'' on this team, what fan doesn't lol.
    I could be wrong, but right now imho none of the FA wr's are stars, and expectations will be unreasonably high if any of them are signed.

    Don't get me wrong, I obviously wouldn't mind signing Wallace/Jennings/Bowe in addition to drafting some wr's.
    My only worry is at what cost.
    You rarely see Pittsburgh just let go of productive guys.
    I like Wallace, but imho, he's not a true number one wr, in the sense of being a redzone threat,etc.
    Jennings would be a great addition too, I'm just worried about his health/age.
    I just don't want to break the bank for any of these FA wr's.

    I know we are all starved for wr's, the worry is that we start reaching for needs, for guys that we think are better than they really are.
    I guess my point is that I don't view Wallace or Jennings as true number 1's.
    Bowe maybe I guess? If coaching get through to him?
    I would prefer drafting wr's in addition to signing one of the FA wr's.
    But I seriously doubt we will get any of those guys for a good price, hence why I made my comment about sticking to the draft.

    I'm not struck on Wallace at all tbh. As a complimentary deep threat perhaps but I wouldn't be paying him #1 WR money, because I don't think he's ever gonna be your go to guy like Marshall was, or any of those #1's are. Jennings is a little too old for this team I feel, if you can get him cheap that's fine but I doubt he comes cheap. Despite his down year this year in a very very bad KC team, I think Bowe is the guy we should be targeting.

    Explain to me how jennings hasn't been a number 1 WR for GB? I also like Bowe the most if he had half the QB jennings/Bowe have he would shine even more

    I tried to vote for Bowe but the OP didn't have the foresight to include such a tremendous talent as an option.

    Brown is only getting paid about $6 million next year on a backloaded contract. Its entirely possible for Pitt to sign Wallace to a similar deal, considering Brown is the better WR. Pitt can also tag Wallace.

    Jennings HAS been a number 1. But has not this year, and imho not next year either.
    I still would love him on the team.
    Just for the right price.
    And my expectations for when we sign him won't be as high as yours.
    I could be wrong though, if he comes back at his previous high level that would be a great signing.
    I would probably rather have Bowe as well though.
