    You need a balanced offense to win. Its great to have good WR's, but you also need to be able to convert on 3rd and short. This isn't arena football.

    That's his agent's startng point. I bet he signs for 4.5-5.5 M (with someone).

    im comfortable with 4 at most, anything more is an absolute waste

    Sign Jared Cook in FA, resign Fasano. This is very doable, I would hope

    I agree with OP though, I don't think we sign both Jennings & Hartline as well as draft a WR in the 1st. Plenty of value in the second, along with us having other holes to fill and there being more value at DE where we're drafting.
    this is explosive, but what do we do with the offensive line?

    We shouldn't pay hartline and jennings and Go #1 on a WR. IMO If they sign Jennings they will go DL or CB in rd 1 as they should and nab either Robert Woods, DeAndre Hopkins,Tavin Austin or Stedman Bailey in rd 2.


    Jennings
    Hartline
    Bess
    Hopkins
    Matthews
    Binns/Moore

    Add a TE like Keller, have Bess in a more comfortable role then in 2012 and a more seasoned Matthews and thats a huge upgrade from 2012.

    Jennings
    Markus Wheaton
    Stedman Bailey
    Matthews
    Binn

    Bamm!

    No need for Wallace when you can have Wheaton. Go watch his highlights. He's ready. 2nd round, 3rd round, be done with it.

    If you (or anyone else) thinks signing an over-30 WCO specialist WR who is really a glorified 2 with some speed (which is declining) means we have The Answer at WR... I got real estate out in East Miami to sell you.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    You make such a definitive statement as if to suggest that no WR ever drafted beyond rd 1 has ever become an upper echelon receiver. How foolish and uninformed. You are aware that defense is an integral part in winning football games.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    I honestly don't believe the second round receivers will ever amount to number 1 receivers in the nfl. That's what we should be going after.

    If we signed Wallace and Bowe, why would I even want Hartline? Nice kid but not really in the same league as Wallace and Bowe.

    What? We're not going to spend 22 million on 2 receivers. Stop dreaming.

    I dont see why we can't have Jennings, Hartline, Bess, and a high round draft pick. Jennings is not a long term solution, and he works well on an offense the spreads the ball around. Its financial feasible, and it makes sense talent wise.

    The only reason we wouldnt follow that scenerio is if we like some of the WRs currently on our roster to be long term starters, which I dont see happening.
