    In no particular order...

    -Devery Henderson 5'11 200lbs - Still only 26 years old, deep threat speed with experience playing split end in a pass happy offense with the Saints.

    - D.J Hackett 6'2 210lbs - 27 years old with a ton of talent. Injury concerns could be an issue, but if he can prove healthy, he might make for a nice pick up with tremendous upside.


    - Armani Toomer 6'3 203 - No spring chicken @ 35, but still produced at a fairly high level for NY over the last two seasons. Reliable target, good hands, and could still have enough gas in the tank to put up quality WR3 #'s. may be able to sign him at the vet minimum.

    - Ronald Curry 6'2 210lbs - Still relatively young @ 29, but like Hackett, injury history needs to be considered. None the less, Curry is talented and posted back to back 700yrd seasons in '06 & '07 for some woeful Raider teams.

    - Mike Furrey 6'0 195lbs - 1000yrd campaign for the Kittens in '06. Versatile enough to step in a play emergency DB if called on, and like WWW, the guy has sure hands and can be a reception machine.

    Out of those, I'd say Henderson or we draft a No. 3. I'd have to think the No. 3 should be a pretty fast guy since we have the tall receiver and slot receiver.

    Coles is looking to be stuck with Buffalo or no-one. Heck, Houshmazoo is having trouble getting paid.

    Coles would be a good move if it's affordable.

    I even like the idea of Galloway as a burner. He's still fast and rested up. nd he plans to keep playing. He's the Seau of WR's when it comes to longevity.

    Money wouldnt be reasonable. He turned down $6m from the Jets because he thinks that he is worth more.

    Henderson is one of the most woeful underachievers in the game. He's a (far) less productive Donte Stallworth clone. Don't want him.

    Hackett and Curry are possibilities (with question marks; I definitely like Curry better than Hackett), and Toomer is intriguing, even if he's probably out of gas. Furrey is probably better suited to backing up Welker/being the #4 WR, but he's definitely a guy I could see the team bringing in.

    I suspect the Patriots will draft someone. In terms of veterans, Coles would still be my personal preference, though he may cost too much.

    Of that group I'd lean toward Henderson. I'd hate to draft a WR early. Its just so hard to judge ( Bethel Johnson/ Chad Jackson both high 2nd rounders ). I believe WR is the toughest position to evaluate in the draft.

    He's on the block for low picks already.

    So who is going to be the other starting WR?

    Edit:

    Oops, looks like there is pretty much the same thread up that is pretty active. My bad.

    Draft Marko Mitchell and let Randy and Wes tutor him. Problem solved.

    I would be surprised if we brought in Henderson. Donald Hayes had better hands. He sure can run real fast though.

    Re: So who is going to be the other starting WR?

    No draft picks for a vet WR, please !

    With Brady. Pats were a few minutes from the SB in 06 : WR corps was digusting. Now, Pats have RFM and WFW + a few underachieving, but talented TEs.

    I'd prefer all 1st & 2nd rounders go towards defense or all but one (a 2nd they will no doubt flip for 2010 pick).

    Aiken, Slater, Ventrone, cheap no-name FA... none inspire, but they keep one extra DB away from the others - good enough for me.

    I'd be looking at Nate Washington, personally.

    He's not a FA, but I'd love to see the Pats go Welker Pt. 2 and sign Lance Moore to an offer sheet; it would cost them their own #2, but I think it would be worth it.

    And I'd be all for signing his teammate Henderson as a #4 just to stretch the field.

    Trade with N.O. for WR Robert Meachem. 6' 2" 215, 4.42 in the 40, scored a great 37.5" vertical and a 6.97 in the three-cone agility drill. Was supposedly great hands at Tenn. but has had an issue. Improving. Supposedly a very good downfield blocker. Swap even up for Maroney anybody?
    N.O. needs a RB, NE needs a WR. They have both had injuries that are on the mend. Both first rounders.
    One unproven great potential player who has been dinged for another.

    Most of these type of fan-proposed player-for-player trade scenarios end up being so much ****amamie, but this one actually kind of makes sense for both teams.

    I'm actually not a huge Meachem fan, he really has developed slowly (even for a WR).
