Neaux, I'm with you and have posted same.

He'd be a Steve Smith type of receiver who could run; plus, plus...

Get 'em out in space...

He's not meeting lofty expectations; but he did set a rookie record for receptions!

I think he'd make a horrible WR.

95% of his receptions are within 5 yards of the LOS.

He's never played WR before, I'd imagine its not an easy transition.

Hey, I could have sworn at USC seeing him play corner or safety now and then in a pinch but I could be wrong. His closing speed alone, he would have made a decent CB. Alex Molden made a career out of his closing speed but couldn't do much else. Reggie can also catch decent. This late in his career though, that's a lot to learn and Reggie is known for sticking with what he knows and he also trips over his own feet almost every game.

payton won't let him walk, not this season anyway. you have to believe that payton is telling bush that we will be going back to the super bowl and does'nt want reggie somewhere on a .500 team being sorry for leaving. stay one more year get another ring then go get the big payday again. yep thats what payton's telling reggie.

Most receptions (even by WRs) are made within 5 yds of the LOS and get YAC.

This is why many people would like to see Reggie in space making those plays.

I don't know about most, but I can guarantee that 95% aren't.

Reggie would be a HUGE bust at WR, IMO.

Cornerback is a thinking man's game - sorry, not a good fit for Reggie.
Reggie can't run through tackles - flip the script - I think he would get run through trying to make tackles.
I'd give him a plus on closing speed, but then after he got there he would have to close.
Let's just keep Reggie a very dangerous option in the offense: on the screen, in the slot w linebacker trailing, and in open spaces at Payton's discretion.
