Everything we have been doing since Tennessee is showing looksies to next year. If we see Binn at all it will be late in the new england game. No one picks up this offense quick enough and if nobody understands this by now your not paying attention. We are gathering potential and he is 6'3 210 which is the same size as the kid from California U. which is what his fans are probly worried about.

Trade down if possible and still get your guy
I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
Why are people complaining about this? He's a WR who has great size and decent speed with good hands. If he dosen't work out who cares.
I'd rather have him on our team than some Scrub DB that can't cover me.
FYI The Patriots put in a claim on waivers for him also. I guarantee there would be 10 threads on here to the extent of " look Biilicheck is taking shots at wr's why aren't we? "
Also the Bengals are pretty stacked in the WR position even without Sanu.
Guy has good size and is young. That doesn't always equate to anything but since the season is over, who gives a ****? If he pans out, great.
People are acting like morons. You work with what you got and we are razor thin at WR. Binns actually looked really good going into the season but didn't fulfill in the regular season. Decent waiver claim that several teams put in for. I was surprised he was released and wasn't even more surprised we were able to claim him.
Dick Butkus: "I wouldn't ever set out to hurt anyone deliberately unless it was, you know, important like a league game or something."
This is a reasonable pick up for a WR starved team. Nothing should be expected to come of it......but we'll all be thrilled if this acorn blooms.
The verdict from most sources about Binns is that he is something of a one dimensional player. Most of the scouting reports read something like this "Armon Binns was created with the singular purpose of running down field and catching lobs over smaller defensive backs. Not possessed of great outright speed or off the charts quickness he will be relegated to a life of NFL poverty as a 6th receiver and special teamer." I think that sells him short to some extent. I think Binns is a better athlete than he gets credit for. He isn't a freak, but he can be productive because he minds the details and is as sure handed a receiver as you can find. Binns isn't the type of receiver who can be plugged into any system and expected to produce, but there is a place in the NFL for a guy with his skill set.
I have yet to see anything that has Binns being anything more than a late round pick. His best outcome would probably be a selection in the 6th round. There remains a very real possibility that he could go undrafted altogether. That would be quite a fall from being a sure fire draftee going into last season.
