    Simple: one of seven options RIGHT NOW.

    If you pick "other" or "draft" tell us who you're thinking of.

    Galloway still has something left in the tank, and he would represent the best value out of those 7. If he wants to sign a small 2 year contract, he would be better in that role than Stallworth was.

    I'm in the Galloway camp myself, followed by Harrison.

    For anyone needing a refresher on Joey:
    YouTube - Joey Galloway

    Holt is intriguing, but not until he gets released.

    I picked Galloway but if/when Holt is available for nothing he would be #1 and Galloway #2.

    I also expect a WR in the first two rounds of the draft if there's a solid value at one of our picks.

    Mike Furrey


    Galloway has good hands and great speed, but below average blocking skills. Harrison has lost a step or two; I'm not convinced his knees are okay. Plus, he refused to take a pay cut with the Colts, which leads me to believe he either wants to make more than a #3 WR is worth to the Pats, or won't play at all. Holt would be intriguing but I'd rather wait till he's cut. Owens should not even be a consideration.

    The problem with the receivers listed here is that I believe they are all looking for more money than what the Pats want to pay a #3 WR - probably in the vicinity of Gaffney's $1.2 million cap number last year. I could be wrong, that's just my opinion. Therefore a more realistic #3 WR is going to be someone like Furrey, Shaun McDonald, Amani Toomer, Ike Hilliard, Justin McCareins, Marty Booker, Drew Bennett, etc.

    I'd look at cheap alternatives:

    Brandon Lloyd - good complementary receiver, productive enough to demand coverage, should be a good blocker
    DJ Hackett - terrific hands, one drop past two years, gets open, but low productivity
    Justin McCareins - good deep threat, can help open the middle for Welker and tight ends

    These guys are sort of comparable to Gaffney, but should be cheaper.
    The Pats need a possession type, good hands, as a third option.

    If Galloway is cheap, I would consider him in here with those three.

    And no interest in Harrison, assuming he wants anything more than veteran minimum, which seems unlikely given his refusal to renegotiate with Indy. I just can't see him accepting the role of third guy well, and he has really lost a lot of his ability. The gun charge doesn't excite me. Terrific hands if he comes cheap and would play the third-option possession guy.

    Same with TO. The drops concern me, but his constant criticism of the play-calling is really a problem. Especially with a young QB/receiver coaching staff, you don't need that. Even if signed to a one-year, no-bonus deal, he takes a slot that would have to be replaced if he acted up. There's no crying in baseball, and there shouldn't be any in football.

    There are a bunch of guys on this list I'd love to have. And I'd like to draft 2 wideouts from this draft. But I still think we need a vet for that #3 spot now that Jab is gone. The guys who contribute over nite, ie Branch, are rare.

    No Jersey Selected

    LLoyd and/or Hackett for me, please. They can be had on the cheap and could be productive next to Moss or Welker.

    I'd like to see a receiver that could backup WWW in the slot. Welker took some huge hits last year. They didn't injure him seriously, but if he goes down for a game or two, there isn't much to back him up.

    The Rams are going to cut Holt when no team trades for him. Hes due a $1.5 mill bonus soon, which they will not pay him. If he's willing to come for a reasonable price, lets make him the by far best third WR in the NFL.

    Per the rumor that Holt is asking for his release, I would say that a 3 some of him Moss and Welker is really a dream season waiting to happen. I don't think it's at all realistic that it'll happen, but I think it'd be a major coup if it did happen.

    not to mention that being on the Rams the past two season must have him desperate to change to a perennial winning team
