I would really like to see us give him a go.

+1.

Would a try out even hurt?

Just as a reference on WR production on guys not named Michael Thomas after 5 games :

Kirkwood - 0 catches, now on IR
Carr - 0 catches ... 3 years in & he knows the playbook
Jordan Humphrey - 0 catches ** he made plays in pre season on 3rd stringers & guys now working at LA Fitness
Butler - 0 catches

If Dez can prove he's remotely better than any of these guys, sign him.

Teddy has been a good fill in, but I still believe that he is not a good NFL QB. I believe that we actually have an underrated WR corps. Tre'Quan getting hurt did not help, because I truly believe he is a future pro-bowl caliber player. Teddy fixates on Michael Thomas and Kamara. Whereas in the past when Brees did it cause our WRs were lacking a bit, I think Teddy does it now because he is horrible/slow at going through his progressions and tends to lock in on targets. Go back and watch some film on Teddy and pay attention to his eyes..... just incredibly slow and indecisive. Teddy is getting by right now cause we have a talented roster that has really stepped it up to compensate for Brees being out . If the roster was weaker and we would be racking up the Ls every week right now. I know we aren't going to change out QBs cause we are undefeated right now with Teddy, but I still think Taysom would have been the better option.

Re: Dez Bryant looking like a beast in his workout videos ahead of NFL return

Wouldn't hurt to look, but the videos weren't flattering - his route break s lacked suddenness, crispness...

Achilles tears use to be a death sentence to NFL careers, his situation - age, position, specific injury, likely will require more work...

Wish him well in his recovery, maybe by the time he gets a look with the team, his recovery will have progressed and he will have regained more explosiveness...

I have a slightly different angle, noticed it when looking up CGM stats...

These are Thomas's Targets by week
W1 - 13
W2 - 13
W3 - 7
W4 - 9
W5 - 13

Next highest is Ginn
W1 - 7
W2 - 0
W3 - 5
W4 - 5
W5 - 2

Next Smith
W1 - 2
W2 - 3
W3 -
W4 -
W5 - 0

Harris
W1 - 0
W2 - 1
W3 - 0
W4 - 0
W5 - 0

Humphry
W1 - 0
W2 - 1
W3 - 0
W4 - 0
W5 -

Everyone else has 0 Targets and you have no chance to catch what isn't thrown to you.

Are we to expect that only Ginn/CGM can get open?

Drew is known for spreading the ball, TB isnt. Personally, I am going to wait until Drew is back before I pass judgement on WRs that arent having balls thrown at them.

Re: Dez Bryant looking like a beast in his workout videos ahead of NFL return

^^ at some point in the season, it will catch up with you by not having a legit #2 WR who can create separation/keep the chains moving on 3rd and long.

I hope those guys mentioned in my earlier post prove me wrong. I could be completely inaccurate here but I don't believe good defensive coordinators are losing any rest game planning for Austin Carr. There is no depth on the roster right now.

Lord help us if Thomas ever gets dinged up.
