[quote=GMScud;806237]Yeah that's the real reason it's tempting. Hankerson is 6-2 210, but Plax is 6-5 and his playing weight is around 235lbs.

I don't think character will be an issue with Plax moving forward. I guess for me it's all about the money.[/quote]

pretty much, and the nice thing is knowing burce allen is in charge of the finances, i'm not as worried we will pull the quick trigger. it will be interesting to watch it unfold whe the lockout is over. damn you lockout, damn you

I'm not sure how legitimate it is that there are two teams genuinely interested in Plax. But Rosenhaus has to say two so any team thinks they're competing with at least one other.

I don't know, but I don't think he's really on our radar. I think it's the Eagles or Rams, with the Ravens a distant possibility

[quote=GMScud;806244]The fans maybe, but certainly not the team. We never have productive tall receivers.[/quote]

Yeah that's what I meant.

Funny thing is, Vinny finally gave them what they wanted and drafted two of the tallest receivers in the 2008 draft, and neither of them have turned into anything.

Talk about a case of "be careful what you wish for"...

Just sign Moss FFS and forget this Plastic Birdtits nonsense.

[quote=mlmdub130;806233]hopefully hankerson can contribute in that department as well. as for plax it is very tempting, very, but the way i see it is he can only really contribute another 3 years at best so he is just another stop gap....[B]but if we can get him dirt cheap and kick the tires i why not, the guy is a physical freak.[/B][/quote]

So you think that we should give Plax a shot? You think he'll give us a leg up? Or will he be a loose cannon?

[quote=firstdown;806226]Do we even need any more WR's?[/quote]

No. Unless we're keeping 8 we do not need to add any more to the potential roster.

If we re-sign Moss, we're set not only for this year, but looking great for the future if a couple of the draft picks can work out for us.

My picks for making the team:
S. Moss
A. Armstrong
L. Hankerson
T. Austin
B. Banks
N. Paul [I]or[/I] A. Robinson [I]with the other one going to PS[/I]

Not on roster Opening Day:
M. Kelly
T. Johnson
R. Williams
M. Price

I like it that there's some competition at WR & Kelly is such an x factor. I don't think Plax is at all right for this team.

After the trend in the draft picks this season, questionable guys like Plaxico are a longshot to coming here. Plus, we have a ton of guys already trying to compete for a spot at WR.

[QUOTE=GMScud;806212]Good football topics have been tough sledding lately. So I guess here's something to talk about:

We all know Burress got out of prison yesterday. So according to Drew Rosenhaus, two teams have stayed in contact with him about Plaxico's availability once he was released. I know Vick wants him and he'd make sense for the Eagles....

So what about the Redskins? Well, John Clayton was just on NFL Live, and his top 4 as far as likelihood to sign Burress were: 1) Eagles 2) Redskins 3) Rams 4) Jets. Interesting.

Are the Redskins one of the two teams supposedly interested? Do you think we should sign Plax?

I think we are in fact one of the two teams, but I'm not so sure about signing him.

Ok I haven't been paying attention to details but why the Eagles? They have two solid WRs. Am I missing something.

Big redzone threat, several Eagles have publicly and not as publicly voiced support for him. And he would stay in the NFC East, which I really don't know how much that matters to Plax

IMHO.....I think it's a team in Fla...any team,it's home and he won't need to register his new gun in 2 states.

If we're going to break the bank we'd be better off doing it with Jenkins, Franklin, and Joesph. And it seems that only two of them are going to be available.

I have no idea why anyone would be interested in a 34 year old wr who hasn't played in two years and is a pain in the ass to deal with.
