I agree especially if its for little to no signing bonus. If he sucks cut him in training camp and move on. You never know he may find a nitch has a third or fourth recieverDolfan1000 said:I cant see how this would hurt- for the veterans minimum, what do we have to lose?
Oh, yes, Booker whined but Boston was just so damned great with his placenta, injury, and assault. :rolleyes24U2NV said:But why can't we afford to take a WR in the 2nd round? I'm not 100% sold on Booker and after the whining he did once he came here he didn't really endear himself if you ask me. After Booker there's just a bunch of average players. That's not the kind of receiving corps you're going to need if you want open things up offensively. Somebody's gotta take pressure off Chambers and if Booker flops who else are we going to depend on? We need Boston back.

As to Hilliard, he's a GREAT signing at the minimum or slightly more. I'm not saying he's a slot guy, but I think he could beat out everybody to be the 3rd most productive WR on the team. He's just the type of player who could really benefit from a change of scenery to rebound and start a productive second phase of his career.
ok in that case...why don't we bring mercury morris back and that would eliminate the need for ronnie brown.....hilliard is a bum!!!!fsu_nole4life said:I am not saying Ike is as good as Edwards or Williams. I am saying that with the addition of him we would not have the need for another WR.
I agree. it is better to pick up a more experienced reciever now than in the draft to leave our options openDolfan1000 said:I mean come on guys, personally, I believe we have WAY too many needs to draft a receiver so early, especially if we dont deal Surtain/move down. Before we draft a WR, IMO we need:
We cannot afford to take a WR in the 2nd round, and any after that would likely have little to no impact this year. Hilliard could be cheap, short-term and who knows maybe it will work out?
