    Nate Washington
    Damian Williams
    Kevin Walter
    Lavelle Hawkins
    Marc Mariani

    Oh boy do we have some decisions to make here! Let's assume we're going to roll with 5 WR's. Hawkins is probably the first cut of this group. As much as it sucks, Mariani probably goes and Reynaud returns kicks. Wanted to see Mariani return from that horrific injury but it's a business and I'm struggling to see where he fits; But then again, keeping Reynaud would mean 4 RB's (Assuming Harper sticks as the 3rd back).. Unless they cut both Harper & Mariani/Reynaud.

    That last cut has to be tough though. Rumors have stated we wanted to get rid of Nate Washington. Damian Williams has had his good moments, and disappointing ones -- but I can't imagine he's disappointed so much that he doesn't deserve a roster spot. Kevin Walter was recently signed and envisioned as a slot security blanket for Locker; but surely the drafting of Hunter at least means Walter will truly have to earn a spot on this team through camp and pre-season.

    Either way, this group will probably require the toughest decision making of any unit on the team.

    Safe:

    Justin Hunter
    Kendall Wright

    Gone:

    Hawkins
    Mariani

    Questionable:

    Britt (probably stays)
    Washington (the most likely to be gone)
    Walter (we did just sign him)
    Williams (could be the odd man out).

    That's just simply too many people. The writing is on the wall for britt. Britt, Hawkins, Mariani, Williams should all be pretty nervous right now. Definitely the last three. Britt will probably stay this season, but his financial future is at stake this year.

    Washington will be here unless traded. There's no way they cut him loose with no compensation. Wright is also a lock for obvious reasons.

    Williams and Hawkins have never earned a roster spot. Who's that other young guy? Preston? He's gone if he isn't already. I'd predict Mariani is a goner too.

    Harper needs to get gone. In a hurry. Gtfo.

    If you guys think Britt isn't gonna make the team you're nuts. They may try to shop him before the tread deadline but he's gonna start the season on the Titans.

    Washington, Hawkins and Mariani are all gone. We'll keep the others.

    That's what I see happening.

    We can carry 6, no problem.

    I can't see us drafting a receiver in the second round to be #4 on the depth chart. I believe Washington is gone. I also think Mariani is gone.

    Nate isn't likely at all to be gone.

    The hell is wrong with you people? You really over-think that whole trading block thing, huh?
