If we traded Britt, I'd either try to sign a FA (Jennings or Bowe) or draft a WR in either the 1st or 2nd. The depth this year for WR's in this draft is incredible. Go Cordarrelle Patterson in the 1st.


I've always been about upgrading our receiving corps, and I still am. As much as I'd like to snatch one or two of this year's WR prospects, taking one in the high rounds is a bad idea. Right now we have greater needs with those first two picks. Plus, I'd really like to see some of our current guys get a chance to move up and compete for more PT in the rotation...guys like Hawkins, Preston and Mariani. If we draft another WR, we should do it with one of our compensatory picks.

You're missing what I'm saying in that sense. I didn't say we should trade him for a 4th round pick. I'm saying that his pro career stats doesn't reflect the production of a 1st round pick. His stats are the kind of numbers you'd expect to see from someone of a 4th round level. And when it looked like he was on his way to finally having that breakout season we've all been waiting on, BOOM, another injury. He tears up his knee without even getting hit. Granted everybody can't be a phenom like Adrian Peterson, but with a whole season to fully recover from that torn ACL, I'm hoping he can pick up where he left off in 2011.


You are only paying Britt $1.2mil. Keep him and hope for the best. Unless you can get a 1st for him and that is not happening. You are not getting anyone with his upside with a lower round pick.

At the moment, that's about all we can do. As frustrated as the coaches are with him, I don't believe they want to let him go because they see the same potential in him as we do. And a lot of plans for the passing game still hinges on him being a part of it. Nevertheless this should be his last shot with us. If he doesn't have a big season, we can do 1 of 2 things. We either just let him go all-together and find someone more reliable, or we can re-sign him cheap (same value at the most), but make him compete for a starting spot. At that point, I couldn't justify giving him a big contract or not starting a more consistent receiver.
I hate to sound so cold about it, but if we're really serious about improving, we can't keep wasting time waiting on him to get it together. He's not the be-all-end-all of WR talent on this team or in the league, and we need to stop acting like it. Dude's going into his 5th season now, how many more chances is he supposed to get?
