    Troy's obviously behind Welker and, given the talent at WR, he would appear to be a "nice-to-have" this year as a 5th WR at best (barring injuries to others).

    Could he make the team this year as CB in the nickel and dime packages, and playing a backup role at WR and PR?

    It would be nice to see him take a victory lap this year.

    let's not disrespect Troy. I'm not going to ask him to play CB on a team that he has excelled as a WR. Troy deserves to retire with diginity as a WR on a team that he has given his all to.

    If that's his preference, then of course!

    However, Troy has repeatedly described himself as "just a ballplayer" -- would he want to be back for one more year, and on what terms? Is there a fit for him anywhere on the team? It might be a long shot, for sure...I'm just curious to see how the Troy situation plays out.

    Troy Brown plays FOOTBALL...he couldn't care less what position he plays.

    I would love to see him on the team next year....as a player/coach.

    Stick a fork in him, he's done.

    It's time to face the music guys. Brown's career is 95% likely done.

    I predict Troy will chill with his family, and see how his body feels with more off-season rest.

    Then, as the season progresses and the injuries hit, he and BB will talk about the possibility of him suiting up again.
