    Our receivers will come via the draft. We need speed and play making ability. I am luke warm about the FA receivers like Jennings, and Bowe. Wallace would be a great get, but too expensive.
    Another DE will come through the draft
    I could not disagree more with what will eventually happen.

    Me neither. If we rely solely on the draft to find receivers I will be really disappointed. Time for some proven talent.

    See, we already tried the proven route with Marshall. It was sort of successful - Marshall was good on his own, but it never felt like he was lifting the offense.

    You could maybe talk me into Wallace, but Bowe seems like another Marshall type (in terms of the impact he makes) and Jennings is an enormous risk who Rodgers proved he really didn't need this year.

    High profile receivers are often some of the worst decisions teams have made.

    Isn't it just admirable how much these kids value a team-oriented mindset?

    Am I the only one who would love to have Greg Jennings here? I dont think he's going to cost as some people think, and I actually think he is the LOWEST risk, he's a good fit for any offense but he is familiar with Joe Philbin, and he's one of the highest character guys around. I think fans would be surprised how much he could contribute to the team.

    Dwayne Bowe drops a lot of passes and would probably demand more money than Jennings. Sounds like Brandon Marshall all over again.

    Mike Wallace I think is too one demensional, and isnt an exact fit for Philbin's offense. And Wallace would be the most expensive and I just dont see Miami utilizing him enough, he would be more of a decoy and an occasional deep ball here and there, no thanks. But I think Tannehill could get the ball into the hands of Jennings more and he's a better route runner than Wallace. Speed is over rated, and route running is very under rated.

    I like the idea of "building through the draft" but some fans on here treat our draft picks as if they are priceless. Whens the last time we drafted a talented WR or talented playmaker in general? The closest we might have is Reshad Jones. but in the last ten years, who else? Sometimes you gotta bring in some talented WR's. the Ravens didnt draft Boldin or Jacoby Jones and they were huge in the post season.

    looks to me like there should be a solid tackle on the market and much cheaper than long...bushrod, beatty, winston justice if the colts can't keep him... i'd also be willing to give doug free a team friendly deal...he's a better tackle than he showed in dallas in 2012...not a guy on his way out of the league...

    if starks walks a cheaper alternative is cullen jenkins and i'd be looking into his market...short term deal maybe 3 years...

    don't agree with tagging sean smith but it looks like the corner market is gonna be thin...

    i think in the end jennings will be here...but it happens all the time in free agency where a guy doesn't go where everyone expects him to prior to the process...one team sleeping in the weeds and then they blow the doors off any other offers...if you go off jennings pre injury tape in 2011 there will be many teams in hot pursuit...i just hope ireland comes correct with this offer or we could be the odd man out again

    Wallace to the Browns is interesting, I struggle to imagine him in Cleveland.
