    Bruce has a great name and a great history (12 years in the league). But at just under 6-0 188 Lbs and turning 34 this season, any thing short of him begging to play with Brett at a significant discount to value should be passed on.

    # 80 Isaac Bruce
    Position: WR
    Height: 6-0
    Weight: 188
    Born: 11/10/1972
    College: Memphis
    NFL Experience: 12

    Hopefully we will give him a look, but I don't know if he fits the MM mould of a wide reciever. Is he big enough for TT and MM?
    It has been written that they like a larger target type of guy.

    Right now Bruce looks to be the best FA wr on the market, but we won't really know until the owners get their heads out of their asses and decide what they want.

    Bruce plays bigger than he is, id say.

    but he's 35 now...


    that scares me. could he play till 40? maybe...

    too risky for me though.

    They want big boys who can block as well as catch the ball.

    Bruce was a great receiver -- but is sliding on the downside of a great career. He is small, plays better on a track than real grass, has never played in any type of West Coast offense, and is on the downside fade of playing days.

    I say take a pass on him.

    ESPN just reported that the cap deadline is extended 72 hours one more time and that teams can rescind any cuts made on Sunday.

    They did report a deal is in placed, but needs to be voted on by the owners. That is supposed to happen Tuesday.

    It was my impression that FA was extended to Thursday.

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he didn't end up with Oakland or a Viking.

    Isaac Bruce at 33 is still better than any receiver Green Bay has. He's been cut because of salary cap considerations and the fact Kevin Curtis is primed to move into the Rams 2nd receiver slot.

    May come back to the Rams if he takes a pay cut.

    Detroit, and Mike Martz, would be a great fit for Bruce.

    I have always liked I. Bruce, but at this point in his career (he turns 34 this season) I would not take him over either Walker or Driver. He has no upside and will cost too much money to waste time with.
