Do you think that we will possibly go after a June 1st receiver now that we have Clayton. Right now we have:
MAson
Clayton
Moore
Hymes
Darling
P. Johnson

Would we recut Johnson or what? Or just not get a new guy?

i dont think we would cut darling unless he looks truly pathetic in camp. He was a 3rd round pick last year that we traded up 7 or 8 spots to get and missed just about the entire year on IR. If someone gets cut, it will either by Johnson or Hymes, probably Johnson(for the 3rd time)

Yea, i would say Johnson.
MAson and Clayton arent going anywhere
Moore showed lots of potential last year
I think Hymes is a good athlete who gives us great depth
Darling wont be cut IMO. Im pretty sure hes a potential speedster that we dont really have. Mason and Clayton are very quick, but neither can be considered a burner.

I think we're set at wide receiver. Unless they can find a really good one at a nice price (unlikely, but sometimes great players just fall into your lap) i think they will focus on other positions. I don't think we'll make any more big name signings, the team is pretty much set except for depth. As for the receivers we have, i think Pat Johnson will be cut after training camp regardless if we get anothger WR or not and Hymes is probably next in line to get cut if we get a new guy.

No way it will be Mason, Clayton, Darling, or Hymes.

Hymes showed some promise, and the other three have had too much invested in them.

Moore showed a lot more then Hymes and Moore was a rookie. Hymes would get cut before Moore. Moore is our 3rd WR right now.

That's right, it was Moore not Hymes. I remember it being some rookie that stepped it up pretty well for you guys.

yea, that was Moore. Hymes played well last year but he seemed to slow down towards the end of the season. After Patrick Johnson, Hymes would be the next to go just because the others are all 2nd year players, a rookie or a probowler while Hymes will be entering his 4th season, even though he was been injured a lot.

Well, you sure don't want to carry 7 or 8 receivers if they all aren't going to be used in some kind of way. If you are using some of them to return punts/kick and/or play special teams, I think they all could stay but that's just my opinion.

actually i think only our first 3 years did we carry more then 5 WRs on the roster. Since Billick has been here weve always only kept 5.

Yeah, if you guys are going into 4 wide outs in a formation, Heap is going to split out wide and you are only going to have three true receivers in the game. There's not that much point in keeping 6 receivers when you have a tight end like Heap. He should be gtg this year.

I think that Mason, Clayton, Moore, Darling and Hymes will make the team. Johnson will be cut again and Fred Stamps will remain on the practice squad.

Bruce could get cut!!! You mean Mike Fartz would actually give up money on offense to possibly spend money on the defense so they can be more balanced!!! No way, I don't believe you!!!
Yeah, Bruce would be a huge pickup, but I'll believe he gets cut when I see it.
