    Yeah, Warrick is a stud KR/PR. Seatlle just cut him loose because they're deep at the position, and they have other KRs. To my knowledge, he's been fine in camp.

    They're deep at WR? Why the interest in Deion Branch? Jackson injured?

    I've heard that DJ Hackett has been a plesant surprise.

    But yeah, I was wrong. They're not that deep at WR, just average or maybe a little better.

    I wish the Packers would have made a move for Raidahs WR Doug Gabriel. Gabriel is a big target down field and has speed (21 yards per kick off return with 4 over 40 yrds.)

    The Patriots took him though and you watch what he will do when Brady is throwing him the ball.

    Missed the boat on this guy!

    We need one more receiver. But right now I'm all for developing Jennings and letting him play. The key for these receivers however isn't Driver or Jennings, it's Ferguson. If he can't or won't go across the middle, can't get ope and doesn't start catching some balls, then you have to move him and find someone who can If he however finally grows up into the receiver many thought he could be, then we might be ok. This is all provided the line can protect Favre long enough to get him the ball.

    Warrick makes so much sense. He can return kicks and be our #4 WR. I hope Green Bay claims him.

    Calico has a little potential. Only because of his speed though.

    Charles Rodgers is so young and the Lions were so sold on him he must have really shown them he doesn't want to play football. I'd stay away from him.

    Peter warrick is short. On top of being short he's not going to burn many DBs. Usually you want a big guy as a possesion reciever so he can go up for the ball or just be a big target in the middle. Gotta give him credit though he's stayed in the NFL a lot of years as a slow short guy.

    I would agree.

    Also IMO Calico is a guy we could sign because he has speed, and height which is something that MM looks for in his WRs.

    Taking a WR that was cut by the Eagles is like someone taking an OL from us after we cut them.

    When a team has a weakness and is cutting players, you don't target them.

    :shock: Deion Branch may be headed to Seattle per the rumor mills; he's accepted the offer and now it's up to Bellichek and Co. Hopefully TT and Mm will bring ina Wr or two for a look see this week?

    I'm kind of hoping for Peter Warrick. Not sure what his status is though. He may have been picked up.

    I think one of the reason's Warrick was cut was he was hurt a majority of camp. I like Calico he is younger, faster and taller then Warrick.

    I'm liking Warrick as a returner. Bigger guys don't usually fair too well as returner.

    Allen Rossum, Mel Gray, Desmond Howard are three of the better ones that come to mind and I believe each was under 6 foot.

    I like Watts as well. I think he's a good fit for the offense and he comes fron Denver which runs something similar to Green Bay. On the downside he hasn't been very productive. Last year he only caught a couple passes.

    I know that there are people here that want Calico for his talent, but he's basically another Rod Gardner. A very talented, big WR that runs ****** routes and drops balls.

    Yeah he doesn't have reliable hands. That was his weakness coming into the NFL.

    Agreed on Calico but he's the best available atm.

    Your sig is false ! Hawk will be to tired from making every single tackle for your defense all year so vernon will pound him !

    Vernon won't be tired because watching alex get sacked 100 times isn't very strenuous.
