    They signed my guy Alcorn to the practice squad- excellent news. I guarantee he'll be a part of the team by next season.

    What worries me is that we still have 4 WRs.

    1 stud
    1 Rookie who is expected to be a solid #2
    1 vet who has underachieved his whole career
    1 player who was on Chargers PS for 2 years, and hasn't played a down in the NFL regular season.

    :-?

    They're not done yet. They're only keeping 4 TE's until Hendo is ready to go. I'd assume they'll get that 5th WR then.

    In the meantime they'll run more two TE sets and less 4 WR sets.

    I totally agree, but kinda confused as to why they would give a roster spot to some player only to cut him and get in another WR within the next week.

    They kept four tight ends and might go with two or three set tight ends with their wide receivers

    Alcorn means another tight end. Our we trying to be the king of tight ends or what. It was proven a few years ago that 4 WRs aren't enough, and we had the chance today to grab a WR with some experience. I'm not impressed.

    I was really expecting them to pick up a WR. I never heard of these guys they picked up.
