    I wouldn't. He can't hold a candle to Dillon. He would be lucky to make our practice squad.

    Do you people realize that as of 8/28/06 the Pats receivers are Brown, Caldwell, Jackson (hurt), Childress and Stone. Of course you consider Troy Edwards!

    Couldn't agree more. I'm looking forward to see other team's cuts at WR.

    He's only 29? Why not work him out.

    I think it bears mentioning that the Jags WR corps is in worse shape than the Patriots. It's also getting past time where we can reasonably expect a WR to learn a completely new system and contribute in the early part of the season. We don't have to pick up every piece of trash that comes across the waiver wire. I'm fairly certain somebody better will become available.

    Dryheat, you're a very good poster. Calling somebody a piece of trash doesn't help others evaluate him.

    Any receiver that's cut is going to have a downside.

    does he shy from contact? Run lousy routes?

    Not work well with others?,(from my grade school report card).:D

    If you've seen him a lot, a real critique would be helpful to those who haven't.

    Seems Jacksonville's going with big receivers, for what that's worth.

    Troy Edwards was a bust. He's like David Terrell. That one didn't work out.

    Troy Edwards would do alright in a spread offense.

    I guess it's not clear from my sentence. I didn't mean to call his character into question (he's a piece of trash). I simply mean that he keeps getting thrown away by other teams, i.e. Bethel for Sullivan was a trash for trash trade.

    For what it's worth, in less than a year, Edwards has been cut by two WR-needy teams in Detroit and Jacksonville. Clearly he's not the answer.

    Hasn't he also returned punts? He could be of some value.

    Unless we want to make a trade, whoever we pick up will have to fit us and be a bad fit for somebody else.

    Patten wasn't exactly in demand when we got him.

    Most teams don't throw as many receivers out there as we do.

    Borisman said he'd be good in a spread offense. Seems to me a vet that does one thing well might be valuable here.

    Not saying he's the one.
