    Our new size could be the lasting legacy of Flash.

    If we put Edelman in as cornerback maybe.

    High school coaches figured out that you put your tall athlete guys on offense.

    I went to their article (Average Height of Defensive Backs and Wide Receivers) and this y-axis still didn't make much sense to me in terms of their overall point except that it is convoluted:

    ????

    So what about the 5'10 receiver with 400 yards compared to a 5'8 receiver with 600 yards ? How exactly does size come into play except "bigger/smaller" ?

    Don't misunderstand me this is not a dig against you posting it because the topic itself is certainly interesting. But sometimes it really looks like people go out of their way to find metrics for graphs that fit their narrative instead of using simpler ones that maybe are not as blatant slanted towards their point.

    A young, athletic lineman having at least the possibility of a future in the league (Anderson) is released while two useless stiffs with no future whatsoever (Thanksdad & Lang) are kept?
    Makes no feckin sense whatsoever.

    I think what they are saying (very poorly worded) is that it is weighted by production.

    In other words there weren’t 11 x height receivers there were 6000 “x height receiver-yards”.

    I’m not sure how he used that difference to frame his numbers though.

    Looks like a slightly more expensive camp flyer. By no means do those 300-400k of guarantees give him any protection.

    He made 511k last years with the Colts in total. So good for him to make almost 80% of that this year simply by reporting to camp.
