Should Saints be looking for WRs?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Colston is hurt again and not practicing or playing. AA isnt practicing. That leaves Henderson, Meachem and Moore. Moore is rock solid Henderson's up/down production is getting old. Meachem is a work in progress. If the running game doesn't produce, ...

Colston is hurt again and not practicing or playing.

AA isnt practicing.

That leaves Henderson, Meachem and Moore.

Moore is rock solid

Henderson's up/down production is getting old.

Meachem is a work in progress.

If the running game doesn't produce, the Saints could be looking at a repeat of last year.

AA not practicing is the norm, so that point is mute.

Colston will be back.

Meachem got a knee to the back in the game, but should be ok.

I'm not worried about Henderson and Moore, both will produce and hopefully Devery can improve from last season.

Roby, Morgan and Fayson are all very viable candidates, and best of all cheap too.

D. Thomas should be reliable, and hopefully Graham will have a break out year... and Lorenzen could be another sleeper.

PT, Sproles and Ingram are all able to also catch the ball.

So all in all I don't think the Saints need to go after a FA WR while I'm not saying that Loomis won't upgrade what they have now if a good opportunity presents itself... I'm just stating that they have enough capable receivers, and most important of all, they have Drew Brees who'll make any receiver good.

I have said it all offseason and I will say it again. Yes. We are not near as deep as most of us think we are at that position, and do not have a true elite receiver. We are going to need one to continue to be legitimate leaders in our division. I would like to bring in jehrico cotchery for this year and address a long term solution via draft or FA.

Cotchery is a steeler...I like what Roby did in the game...and Billings looked ok..but we might have to address that in the draft..

You never say never, but if I had to list the positions we need more help at, WR would be almost dead last.

No, people talk about it all the time. Nothing mute about it.

Probably the one thing we disagree on...

We lack a "true" #1.

Before you answer "Colston" - where would he be without Brees?

Moore is good. But can he survive outside the slot?

Meachem is good. But is he anything more than a younger Devery Henderson???

I'm beginning to think that our WR's succeeded more from the presence of Reggie Bush than without.

Just a thought...
