Nice. Hope we use him like a Darren Sproles. Think he will be a great weapon for Locker.

Both is true. Good signing IMO. Whiz probably wanted him. Lets get some defense now!

One can be PR, the other KR.

And McCluster has more uses than just returning, too. I dunno why the Chiefs stopped using him in the backfield, considering one year they gave him 114 carries and he averaged 4.5 per touch. Outside of that he didn't carry it more than 18 times in a single season.

I think we plan on using McCluster more on offense.

With McCluster and Washington, what does this mean for Mariani and Damian Williams? Personally i think Mariani is now for sure gone, and i think Damian has made enough of a mark on offense to be brought back, only if the money is right.

Some on twitter think Washington might get the axe.

Think he meant Leon, not Nate.

No way Nate is gone. I don't think we can risk that, IMO. He's the only sure-fire thing we have at the WR position. Wright looks great, but we don't know if he'll still keep improving/he could fall off/etc, Hunter is still developing, etc. Washington is the one guy we have that Locker(or whoever else plays QB) can fully trust to be in the right spot every time.

No offense but Washington isn't a sure thing at all. Washington will have a good game and disappear for the next 5 weeks. Wright is the most consistent player we got on offense.

And the tweet came after both Leon and McCluster were signed. I don't approve of releasing Washington and I don't think it'll happen but just saying what I saw.

The reason Washington will "disappear" is because he's usually the one getting covered by the best CB on the other team, and Washington isn't a good enough player to consistently beat top end CBs in the NFL. He's a #2 WR, not a #1. But take him away and that #1 CB goes to either Wright or Hunter, most likely Wright, and our passing game is taken away.

Assuming Wright continues to emerge, he'll eventually become that guy that takes on the #1 CB. He's got the skillset to beat #1 CBs, too, which will also help open up Nate.

But that's not guaranteed.

Not really lol.

This move adds a dynamic playmaker to the return game and the passing game.

CJ has no part in either of those.


Side note. I still think CJ is gone.
