4 receptions, 68 yards, 17 YPC, in 8 games in which he was mostly a special teams player... Oh, and 1 drop.

I'd love for Toon to shine. Pair him with Cooks and Stills and we got our core for years.

Do something Toon or get out of here. I'm tired of WR's who look great in training camp/preseason but can't make the jump to regular season (Arrington, Tanner, soon to be Toon??)

So after 1 season you're ready to give up on Toon?

He's progressing much faster than Lance Moore did, and Moore turned out pretty well.

We're going on Toon's 3rd season now and yes, if he doesn't show up big then I'm done with him. Stills showed his worth in his first year and Cooks is killing it so far in his first training camp. S*** or get off the pot Toon. That's a valuable roster spot that I'm sure another player would love to have.

1st season was IR.

Again, he's progressing better than Lance Moore did.

And who is actually proven that can take his spot?

You have contradicted yourself. If you are tired of receivers that show up in training camp but don't deliver (as I am sure we all are) then saying Cooks is killing it so far doesn't strengthen your argument. We all know that training camp is not the test of a good pro player but it can't hurt to do well to earn yourself a roster spot.
