    For crying out loud
    Makes no sense he's never played for NE or Houston

    Trenton - ‘thank you for taking a chance on me sir ; I will cut my teeth through excellent ST play…’

    JRob - ‘who said anything about special teams?? You are Derrick’s direct backup baby! Foreman had the audacity to ask for 2 mil a year so we told him to kick rocks! I mean that $$ goes to cave-man Swaim am I right ??’

    We're not going to use a "game changing WR" to change games. Better to get a guard which we will use.

    With our style of offense, and our oc, i think it'll be hard to convince a good FA WR to join, which is why i think the draft is more likely. Probably sign a middle of the pack kinda tho

    We could have cut Cunningham for practically nothing. This move was beyond terrible.

    Pretty sure they have Cunningham penciled in as a starter alongside Long.

    Pretty good indication we aren't cutting Cunningham...free up some space with a restructure

    Trading for Julio in the first place was the mistake. We just threw away two decent draft choices. The good news is, in the age of FA that isn’t as impactful as it used to be. If JR massages the cap correctly, we may wind up with a better wr corps than last year. Not all that hard to do I realize…

    Took a gamble on him getting healthy and his legs holding up. It's now obvious that the wear and tear of an NFL season is too much for him at this point. Another team will give him a shot if he chooses to keep playing. He just won't make as much money.

    There was huge upside in making the trade and taking that gamble. Unfortunately, it didn't work out. At least JRob admitted the mistake and moved on because it looks as if Julio can't get over the hump with those leg injuries. Could have tried again next season...but then it would just be everyone pissed that we wasted 2 years on a busted WR.
