    It makes you wonder what conversations were had over the last few weeks in anticipation of this.

    I think his overall play is getting exaggerated pretty much here.
    450 snaps, get it. 35 total targets.
    Let’s not pretend he’s way more valuable than that.

    More info on that interesting tidbit.

    The game-day active roster will increase from 46 to 48 players (although one of the extra players must be an offensive lineman, which will give teams more flexibility to have three extra linemen). Practice squads will expand from 10 players to 12 starting this year and to 14 starting in 2022. Practice-squad salaries also are going up -- the minimum salary is $8,000 per week in the current CBA, and it will rise to $11,500 by 2022 -- and those players will be eligible for 401(k) and tuition assistance benefits.

    Two practice-squad players per week may be elevated to the team's roster, meaning game-week roster sizes effectively increase from 53 to 55. And a player elevated from the practice squad to the 55-man roster could be sent back to the practice squad two times without having to clear waivers.

    The changes will give teams more flexibility in managing their rosters and, if utilized fully, will offer more opportunity for practice-squad players to earn active-roster salaries.

    Tajae was one of the best route runners we've had. On every one of those snaps he was in the right place, whether to make a catch, or more often to lure defenders away from our play makers. If you don't think that has value, well then...

    Sure, he was valued as a #4 WR.
    He was a first down machine as far as his limited targets.

    But,
    Similar to CD, I’m sure we can find that a large majority of his snaps were spent as a blocker. The fact that he was only targeted on 7% of his plays tells me that he’s not “unreplaceable” by any means. Raymond seems like a good outside deep threat. Hopefully Hump stays healthy. Hopefully CD is recovered and brown looks like a stud.

    Eh Tajae gonna be an afterthought. Granted, he had good hands and ran good routes considering where we got him, but it’s not like he can’t be replaced. He’s a WR 3-4

    I think you throw the word “Great” around way too easily.

    I thought we took a RB too early.
    Our Edge group is still trash. How can anyone say Gilbert and Correa are any good?
    We replaced Casey and Autism Johnson with Murcheson, so there’s still a huge hole there.

    I had to re-read the OP to make sure, but the word “great” isn’t used once.

    Edit: my mistake, it’s used once as in “Tye Smith is a great CB5”. I think technically saying anyone that is a #5 of any position, does not actually mean great.

    I believe there is a strategy to not drafting a wide receiver late; 1) plenty of udfa's at the position,
    2) there will be plenty of good quality camp cuts to choose from. Why not let these other teams sort and groom them for us ?
