We really need another WR (preferably a vet) for the #4 spot. You simply can't expect Thomas/Kamara to bail our offense out week after week after week.
According to Albert Breer, the Broncos have been taking calls about trading Emmanuel Sanders. Don’t know if we’re interested or not, or if it would be the right move, but we have to do something.

Wonder if he could be had for a 5th?

MT needs help.

He's how old?

Baltimore has lots of TEs, might be able to trade for one not named Mark Andrews?

Saints really need another WR/slot guy. Tre's ankle is day to day.

9/19 vs Oak 5 rec on 7 targets 1 TD 86 yards
9/15 vs CHI 11 rec on 13 targets 1 TD 98 yards
9/22 vs GB 2 rec on 5 targets 10 yards
9/29 vs JAX 5 rec on 9 targets 104 yards.

Emmanuel is 32 however he has a TON of more production of any player we have not named MT.

Carr aint that dude and Humphries/Butler need more reps, development & coaching.

I'm with you Brother, but I see the situation differently...

We don't need a 1A option No.2 WR; we need a second go-to guy, can be a TE or a WR; now @CantGuardMike does most damage out of slot on third down, so we need a big perimeter guy to take the X then...

Now what we don't have and as You and Rez have alluded is a legit burner - Agreed; haven't had it since we moved Brandin Cooks (Disclaimer, I'd still do that trade to get Ramczyk all week and twice on Sunday)...

Too much was riding to get that second option, wasted two years on Cam Meredith; crazy is that one of your most trusted personnel guys, now running the Bears, let him go! You think your Docs work different magic?

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.

You gonna spend coin, at least get the young burner, even if his hands are suspect as Devery Henderson's were at first; Coach Curtis will get that whoopin stick out and remedy those stone hands...

Or you get the uber TE and you break up the field and you let the Safeties pick their poison, Brees can quickly read and dice; we had our chances, we simply bet on the wrong horse(s)...

And that's on the Director of Pro Scouting...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

At this point, we simply need another weapon at WR.

Brees can't & won't play forever.
