Yawn. We have more quality WR's than we know what to do with right now.

Things are looking GREAT on the WR front.

We really didn't need to upgrade WR, at all. It may be our deepest position on offense even without Meachem.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks we may be open for trading Devery? Cap relief and a decent player in return?

Anything is possible, but I think Colston, Henderson & Moore are fairly secure.

Sounds like the pre-draft scouting report on Colston

Aside from the injuries it seems that all the negatives about this guy can be simply solved with some bulking up and catching drills.

The problem is that's what college is for
