Meh I wouldnt say the #2 WR isnt on the roster, I think its more about if he can stay healthy. People keep thinking Broyles for slot only but he shined when he was #2. Just needs to stay healthy.
Broyles is not an outside WR by any means, he doesn't have the size/speed/athleticism required. Never saw him line up outside last season, and I doubt you'll ever see it in the future either.


Then you werent watching him. He wasnt there all the time, but rest assured he played on the outside and did well.
Nah, pretty sure you've got it twisted. The receivers opposite Calvin were:

Nate- weeks 1-7
Titus- Weeks 7-10
M. Thomas- weeks 11-14
K. Durham- weeks 15-17

Broyles might have played a snap or two somewhere in there, but 98% of his snaps were in the slot.


Id take that bet.

If he played there, and played there well, then we have nothing to worry about- our #2 WR is already on the roster and we should expect to see Broyles there then this season right?

I'd take that bet.

Now THAT'S a stretch. I highly doubt they move Burleson from #2 regardless. I never argued he'd start there, just corrected the fact that he played on the outside last year and more than the 2% you alluded to.

Nate- weeks 1-7(Titus played snaps outside, with Nate inside as well)

Both of Broyles' touchdowns were on the outside, for what it's worth.
