Looks like the article has been removed...

Still confirmed in a lot of places though.

Mixed feelings about this, but he did have some good grabs last year.

My guess is that the deal will be similar to Munnerlyns contract.

Solid move, gives the team depth at WR.

I just don't get it. Let the guy go. Hopefully just a camp body.

Coming off a career year, yardage wise, last season and had to have led the team is pass inference calls drawn.

He's a 3rd/4th wide receiver on a good team and that's what he will be here. Probably no more than a one year, $2.5M deal considering he could be suspended at the beginning of the year again.

Only reservation about this is it slows down the development of Wright. 3rd year is supposed to be the big year for receivers, is it not?

Still, between Jennings, Patterson, Simpson, Wright, and Rudolph, hopefully Cassel can find an open receiver.

This probably will eliminate the chance of Evans or Watkins happening.

Shouldn't hinder the development of Wright at all as they play different receiver spots and the Air Coryell has more defined roles within the offense for each receiver.

Wright is FL2 and Simpson is SE2. In most offenses, FL2 sees the field more due to operating out of the slot or off the line in the true FL position.

I wouldn't say that. Im not saying they were a high chance to begin with, but I could easily see them letting Simpson walk if they were to bring in one of those guys. You have to plan for now and the future, and if their true intention is to try and get one of those WR's, then they need some insurance in case they dont work out.

I'd also like to think us re-signing Simpson would have no impact on us drafting a WR if the FO deemed it the right pick.

Let the Defensive Pass Interference begin!

This man got some nice yardage that way! I am fine with the signing.
