    Yes we need Givens. More leadership for the three rooks from this year. He will be good opposite Bennett. Even though I like him, and want him to prove himself and stay with us, Calico will find a way to get hurt again.

    If we get Givens, Calico is history, kicked in the *** with the boot labeled "BUST"

    Well, no question is abilities and experience would be a gain, but $25mill over 5 years just to tutor rookies (if we're assuming they will be our future WR's) is a little much isn't it?

    Of course, if Calico doesn't come around, we'd have Givens, Bennet as #1 and #2 and Roby, Jones and Williams could fight for the #3 spot.

    It's a fishing expedition. He's making the rounds. He's already hit Miami and Houston. It looks like Buffalo, San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, New Orleans and Cleveland have all shown interest.

    Here's his numbers:

    No way I pay what he is wanting.

    I'm not saying he would be here just to tutor them. He would be here to produce.

    I am not paying that much for him. Let somebody else over pay him.

    From ESPN:
    His receptions total has improved every season and his quickness, double-move skills and size are impressive. It's notable, though, that he never has played a full 16-game schedule, and there are questions as to whether he can be a No. 1 receiver.

    Not worth 5 years - $25 million :sad2:

    We are lacking a #1. Bennett I don't think is a true #1 and is not capable of being an impact reciever. I don't think Givens is an impact either.

    Maybe Calico could surprise us all.

    He made around what Hartwig made this past year. That would be quite a jump. He is in no way worth that amount yet. I'd give him less, but I would probably wait until he went through all the other teams first. If he's gone, fine.
