    I want someone to leapfrog Hartline. I don't think we have a real receiving corps until that happens.

    Extending from this though... if Tyms and Binns or anyone else steps to the fore, I wouldn't be surprised to see Gibson be up for a trade bait discussion... considering you would then have, taking CK's suggestion; Wallace, Hartline, Matthews then the question would arise of why would you pay Gibson what you're paying him to be the 4th WR.

    This 3 through 6 spot WR discussion is going to be fascinating to watch. I just hope that Binns doesn't turn into a legawho situation?
    Some forum members may not like Gibson but the staff and GM clearly do.

    Gibson caught my eye last year with the Rams...so, I'm going to cast him aside by any means. What I am concerned with is they may be trying to fit him as a "square peg into a round hole" as a slot...

    Umm... no.

    Lots of folks wanted the team to draft someone to replace Davone Bess, without realizing that replacement was already on the roster.

    I think you have to hedge your bets on Matthews's development. I don't think you can go into the crucial year of your franchise QB's development banking on the idea that Rishard Matthews will buck the odds of the typical 7th-round pick and become a reliable and productive target. If he does, then you still have depth in Gibson for a relatively cheap cost. It's not like we signed him to Mike Wallace money.

    Gibson thus far is being used as the replacement for Bess, that's correct. But I think Rishard Matthews will eventually leapfrog him (In another year he may leapfrog Hartline IMO). I think Gibson will be better than Bess possibly by a margin or 2 or 3. Bess was not good at all sorry.

    So, you'd rather him not do well? If he scores 5 TDs in our slot position, he will be an excellent signing for us.
