I don't see how the Steelers are going to let Randel El go, so we'll have to draft someone and have a vet compete with D. Patten.

I agree, I do not want another small WR. I would like to see us get a bigger WR. Here are my choices, in no particular(SP) order.

A. Bryant - 6'2" - 188lbs. 4yrs exp. Last year where he got to be the #1 guy he had over 1,000 yards and 15 catches of 20+yards.

D. Givens - 6'0" - 212lbs. 4yrs exp.

K. Robinson - 6'1" - 205lbs. 5yrs exp. Also, could work on our special teams squads.

K. Washington - 6'3" - 216lbs. 3yrs exp.

Any one of these guys I would like to see play for us. Also, if you look, they are all young meaning that they wont be quick fixes, they will be here long term. And they are big WR size wise to help move the chains and be a target in the red zone.

I wouldn't count on Arizona letting any of those guys go.

Re: Randle El is the receiver we need to pursue (#2 WR discussion - Merged)

I'd only want AR-el if the following aren't available:
wayne (expensive and franchised, so not happening :/ )
curtis (RFA)
KR
draft S moss
givens

there are #2s with 800-1000 yards, so settling for someone that's a 600 yard WR just cause he's fast and can run a trick play is silly. I'd bring in 2-3 WRs though. Either curtis or KR, then on top of that try to draft a WR if and only if the right player is available and bring in a couple lowball guys with upside or old established guys (keenan, reche, etc). That way you could have 2 good WRs outside moss and depth that's good for more than 1 catch a game total.

didn't consider K washington or C Bradford... the texans J gaffney might be a good pickup too. I think curtis if possible is still the best option, and KR is a good pic too as long as you have a backup plan.

Re: Randle El is the receiver we need to pursue (#2 WR discussion - Merged)

Bears are apparently interested in Randle-El, per the Chicago Tribune.

"Talk around this year's Senior Bowl practice week is that the Bears' first priority will be Pittsburgh wide receiver and premier returner Antwaan Randle El when free agency begins in March. Randle El, from Thornton High School in Harvey by way of Indiana University, has averaged 40 catches for 12.4 yards and 42 punt returns for 9.5 yards during his four seasons with the Steelers.

Randle El also would give the Bears a third-string quarterback on game days without using the active roster spot. His play in the Steelers' playoff run will drive up the price, but the Bears are in excellent salary-cap shape and have not shied from making decisive, big-money moves the last three off-seasons."

It's going to be hard for the Redskins to compete with a team that has plenty of cap space for a player of Randle El's caliber.

If this is true about the Bears, we can kiss Randle El goodbye.

We need reggie wayne, T.O., randle-el, or 6'0''+ receiver to be a solid 3rd down, blocking and can go over the middle wide out, and put patten in the slot on 2nd and 3rd, and long down situations. We need a hard hitting, cover DB either SS or CB, and an backup O-line. Who is out there FA and or draft?

I gotta' say. The Bears are making some sound decisions personnel-wise.

It's not very often, salary cap or not, that Dan Snyder lets someone leave the city without signing a deal. If Dan gets it in his head that he wants Randle El, he will make it work. Remember, between Gibbs & Danny, we've got Jesus and Satan on our side.

Look at his stats: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...?playerId=3590

His best year was 43 catches for 600 yards and 3 TDs <crickets chirping>.

He isn't even as good as Patten, he fumbles too much, and his hands are Gardneresque. How would he help the team?

There are better options out there.
Randle-El scored one TD in the regular season. But I guess he stepped up in the playoffs.

Re: Randle El is the receiver we need to pursue (#2 WR discussion - Merged)

Check the links for the following receivers:

Reggie Wayne http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/235256

Antwaan Randle El http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/302217

Eric Moulds http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/1196

Kevin Curtis http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/395944

As a #2 Receiver, I'd want them in this order:

Wayne, Moulds, Randle El, Curtis.

As a #3/KR, I'd want:

Curtis, Randle El

Everyone is talking about Randle El throwing option passes, but how many of those are the Redskins likely to run??? Maybe 4 in an entire season? I'll take the best receiver of the bunch to take the pressure off of Moss and then worry about gadget plays and return yards.
