We don't get Hartline, Wallace, and a 1st round WR.
Hartline is Wallace but with a little less speed. I say we're gonna get Jennings (or Wallace), draft a WR in the 2nd (to compliment our star WR whether being Route running or speed), and grab Ryan Swope to make up for the connection lost with Hartline.
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hartline is a beast. We havnt seen the best of him yet and if we let him go, its Welker all over again.
Like Father Like Son BABY!!!!
Thats what Im talking about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm completely against re-signing Hartline for ''reportedly" what he wants.
He is a guy we can replace through the draft easily imho. I mean what has he really done for us that another mid-round draft pick cannot?
I'm not saying Hartline is useless. Just that he's easily replaceable, relatively speaking of course.
Wallace is definitely not worth what he will be getting. Not even close. We need a guy that can help us in the redzone first. Turn these damn fg's into td's.
Neither Hartline or Wallace are capable of that.
Imo we should draft our 2 starters at wr.
Don't waste money over guys like Hartline/Sean Smith, etc, even if it bumps us down a tad short term, these 2 guys are the epitome of the guys we need to cut bait on.
What Everyone wants:
Go Get Jennings or Wallace
Go draft a receiver either in the first or second round
What would Prevent this from happening:
Signing Hartline - If you sign Hartline for decent money for 4-5 years, you're not going to draft a receiver that early to split snaps with him for 4-5 years
What Should Ultimately Be Done:
Go Get Jennings or Wallace, whoever you feel better about
Draft your favorite receiver either in the first or second round
Sign another FA that can play, to split snaps with the rookie while he develops, someone along the lines of Boldin for 2 years, maybe Ramses Barden, etc.
I'm waiting for the "Detroit released Titus Young, should we sign him?" thread.
