    other than Brady, it has to be Big Ben Watson. It could really open up the seam for him next year.

    Yes, Watson, Maroney, Faulk, Morris, David Thomas, etc.

    It really opens up the field allowing the team to use all its options without having a defense cheating on a particular tendency due to positional shortcomings. We're all going to love this!

    Or he could get to block a lot while he watches all these receivers.

    Things could break open a lot more for Maroney now too.

    Unhappiest, other than the WR who won't make the team ? Brady's girlfrined - Brady has Wes, Kelley and Dante to spend lots of time with now.

    Well now Watson won't have to be the teams #1 TE as well as teams #1 WR. That will have to make him the happiest guy around. Oh, and Brady must be delighted to know that he finally has a real starting WR corps with which to operate.

    If all of these guys stay heatlhy this year ...... watch out!

    Good point regarding Watson-it should help others get open as well, since opposing defenses will be forced to give our receiving corps as a whole more respect. With more WR talent and the way Brady spreads the ball around. it's going to put greater pressure on defenses.

    Happiest man is Maroney. No doubt about it.

    What about J. McD? He finally has some talent at the WR position then some castaways from other teams.

    yeh I feel like watson was being used too much as a first option. I think his talents are better used if he is depended on less. he is a tight end after all, not a wr.

    Watson has to be the leading candidate for team leader in receptions next year. Stallworth will draw the teams #1 CB, and could frequently draw the double team too. Welker will draw either a safety or the opponents top coverage LB. This leaves Watson open for some big plays.

    I think what should make Watson the happiest is that he won't get beaten up as much next year which equals less fumbles and injuries.
