    So who is the odd man out at WR?

    Our current list of receivers is:

    Bennett
    Givens
    Calico
    Wade
    Jones (PUP)
    Roby
    Roydell Williams
    Orr


    That's 8 receivers I'm sure we'd like to keep. Do we keep 7 on the active roster until Jones returns and then cut one then?

    I don't know about wade, but you have Roydell Williams 2nd to last on your list. I really believe RW will be our #3, #4 at worst this year. He may not have had alot of throws to him last year. But from what I remember, every time he caught a ball he was Flat out nailed. HE HELD THE BALL EVERY TIME. I have big hopes for this kid.:thumb:

    Calico might be the weak spot on that list. I don't think he'll get cut until after the 2006 season.

    I don't really like Wade. I aren't a massive fan of specific guys, especially returners taking a roster spot. He couldn't cut it at WR for the Bears, that says a lot to me, but we'll see.

    Thomas Jones couldn't cut it as a Running Back in Arizona but he killed it in Tampa and Chicago.

    Jones could be PUP and Orr to the practice squad. We could also see another injury or even a trade that would shake things up. With Bennett in the last year of his contract any team who loses a starting WR to injury would be interested in a trade scenario. If the Titans feel confident in the young guys and Givens, not to mention Calico, Bennett could be expendable although right now he might be our best WR.

    trading bennett is stupid right now....we have like 5 WRs who have played less than 2 years in the league...id have to say we would most likely cut players not trade arguably the best one we have at this time..

    I wasn't saying that they should trade Bennett. IMO he is the best we have. Still, if they really liked what they saw in Wade and Orr and the group from last year was really showing improvement AND another team was desperate enough to offer a nice trade offer it wouldn't surprise me to see something happen. Bennett is in the last year of his deal.
