    Williams looks better than Landry when he - JL - did during camp as a rook. The sky is the limit for Williams, if he remains healthy that is.

    The way I view the fanbase, Williams can be 1st team All Pro and have 75% of the fanbase hate his guts if he:
    1. Asks for a raise.
    2. Speaks on social issue.
    As long as he doesn't do that, the fanbase will name their children after him.

    Landry played 4 seasons at full speed and at a and high level and you never heard a peep about money or holding out unless some reporter brought it up. Meanwhile Zeke sitting up here with 2 years left on a rookie deal threatening to sit out the season.

    Let's get Williams through his first preseason. I think he is an immense talent but y'all be hot taking like a mother****** sometimes.

    I do agree at this stage of the team building, you take a UDFA at any position that shows potential over a vested veteran making 8 figures. . . But pump your brakes on Williams being better than Landry.

    Here for everyone who will say Preston based off the preseason game against the 2nd team.

    Landry sucked. For every good play he followed it with a negative one that hurt the team. He was selfish and undisciplined. Every amazing catch Williams made he calmly handed the ball to the officials and then did it again.

    So wierd. Landry played for 4 years for us at pure dirt money relative to his production level and max effort every snap wants to get paid and does as a top free agent option and tbe market dictates and people hate him for it.

    Just wierd

    Penalties, limited route tree, physical limitations that define his skill set (speed)...He was a better version of Devon Bess or maybe an extremely broke mans Anquan Boldin in his twilight.

    He wanted WR1 money. On this team, with 3-4 major holes on the offensive line, nothing at QB to speak of and frequent first round busts like Parker, Charles Harris and so on, winning teams don't spend money on a guy like Landry.

    I wouldn't have paid Landry that money either BUTTTT, I would have had a plan in place of how that money is to be used. You don't pay Landry, you don't pay for an o-line, you don't pay for d-line, you draft wrong...then at the end of the day hang your hat on the fact that you didn't pay Landry...the only player on offense with a football pulse.

    The vitriol for Landry on this site amazes me sometimes. I know he wasn’t perfect, but he was the heart of the offense and played every snap 100%. Williams hasn’t even played in a real game vs starters yet. Talk to me after he has at least a handful of standout games, or better yet, a season or two of them. Until then, he is the second most overhyped player on this team behind Josh Rosen.

    Regardless of Williams, I wouldnt want Landry at that salary on this team. If Im paying for a WR, I want TDs... Landry was very good at what he does, but I dont think its wise to allocate a big % of your cap for that type of production...

    this is so true, though sometimes it’s hard to tell if the QB makes some of those WRs great or vice versa.

    I liked Landry and defended him when he was here. That said, the 100 catch <1000 yards is like when JJ was so determined
    Marino have a 1000 yard rusher we handed off to Karim Abdul Jabbar like 648 times for 1100 yards. LoL.
