Saints Making Push to Sign Anquan Boldin

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm not against this signing, but I just wonder what that means for the young receivers who'll need all the snaps they can get in order to develop?!...

It's likely Anquan will play roughly the same amount of snaps that Colston did last season, and whilst Colston took snaps we still saw Cooks have his best season, Snead fall 40 yards shy of 1000 and coleman start making strides.

Now Coleman is the odd man out in my opinion, First 4 WR's in terms of snap count for me is - Cooks, Anquan/Snead, Then Michael Thomas.

And you really need to have depth at that position, since even one semi-serious injury will change the line-up they have at the moment drastically.

Coleman is in for a fight to crack the 53 roster even if we don't sign Boldin. He doesn't offer anything other than being a WR. No special teams work, can't be a gunner or returner & probably won't be used as a blocker.

Unless Brandon ties it all together at training camp & can produce consistently & make a profound impact, there are always other options for that roster spot.

Wow, excellent hands, tough as nails, might have a year or 2 left, and IIRC he's a locker room enforcer type too.

Cooks, Sneed, M.Thomas, Boldin & Fleener! If Cj Spiller gets right, this could be a dangerous receiving core.

Isn't that how they sold us Browner last off-season?!

Rapoport may once again be absolutely full of **** when it comes to the Saints. When will we learn?
