    He’s cooked and he’s a complete idiot. That would be a monumental waste of perfectly good cash.

    Half right - the 1-yr "prove it" part.

    Reportedly, he turned down a 3-yr/$21M offer from the Ravens because he wanted $8M guaranteed up front (which the Ravens couldn't fit under their cap). So, the "not seeking a ton of $" part may not be correct.

    For a moment I wondered, "Hmm ... how does one cook an idiot?" But I quickly realized that most of them are self-cooking.

    Some of those pills get a bad rap for their effects causing a medical condition involving lasting too long. Personally I think many of us would view that as more of a scheduling issue than a medical problem.

    In a different year, I could see value in signing him, but not this year.

    Dez has zero special teams value. Any WR like that needs to be at worst a WR3. We all assume a healthy Edelman and Hogan will be our top 2 guys, so that would put our top 3 WRs in their 30s.

    Because of our need for youth at that position, again, I don't see the value. And that's just getting him on the 53. It gets more complicated fitting him on the 46 man active roster.

    Dez would be a waste of a perfectly good 90-man roster spot. I'd rather pin my hopes on the corpse of Kenny Britt that we're trotting out there over Dez and all his baggage.

    I hear you. Let's say he's currently still on the market, made a mistake to turn down the Ravens, and could be snagged for near league minimum now. Would you do it?

    He's been putting up ~800 yards/6 TD's in his down years recently. Similar as Moss who people said was broken down before the Pats got him. With high motivation you think he could play a little Michael Irvin on the outside ?

    Actually, no, I wouldn't. I can't argue that Dez wasn't very effective for awhile - in the Cowboys' system. But he's really limited in many ways that make him way, way more similar to Ochocinco than to Moss. I think he could actually be good with one of the top-3 rookie QBs, assuming that they're running a fairly simplified system, at first. Just don't see Dez working out in the Pats system.
