.we need a possession receiver to move the chains when the goings tough. The speed on this team is ridiculous. We don't need DAT. Except to return punts I guess. I feel a blue collar type possession receiver can help us more. That's what he brings to the table. String drives out and give our defense time to rest when they need it.
I'm not crazy about DAT in this role. But we still miss Albert wilson. DAT isn't Albert wilson but he can do some of those things. Gadget guy, jet sweeps... If DAT can find a way to become an underneath passing option he could be a weapon. A lot of teams who run a ton all verts plays love having a sprint option out of the backfield.

DAT will hardly see the field unless it's on special teams.

Cody Thompson or Gehrig Dieter.

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

Or neither, I guess. That's also a possibility.

There's chairs on the practice squad with their names on 'em.

And with our luck, the Pats will scoop up Dieter and make him the next great white hype.

I hope they keep Thompson he has been performing well so far in camp and in preseason. How many WR's did we keep last year, 6 or 7?

DAT's primary role here will be as a gunner. He's an excellent gunner. They clearly had Kemp slated for that role but with his injury, they needed a replacement gunner. With Hardman, Hill and Smith there was never a need for a returner. That's not to say DAT won't get return work, but he's a hired gunner.



Nope.
The value of a possession receiver is more about being physical enough and running crisp enough routes to get some short stuff. We could definitely use that. On the one hand, mahomes needs to learn to take the checkdown every once in a while. But it would be great to have someone other than kelce in very specific situations who can help our short game. New England basically took away our entire deep zone and you'd have to think lots of other defenses will try the same.

Nope. That's what Kelce is for. Big bodied receivers who win with positioning are great for QB's who can't throw with anticipation and accuracy.

Those days are long gone, son.

Besides, we already have two guys who fit that bill if need be. Watkins and Kelce. And Hill is more than capable of that as well, regardless of his size.

The idea of a possession receiver is an out of date concept. This aint the 90's no more.

Agreed.

I think the WR group will be:

Hill
Watkins
Hardman
Robinson
DAT
Thompson

The only other WR might be Rashard Davis but he really hasn't done anything and Custis has been invisible (unless they are hiding him).

You're forgetting Pringle who many think is a lock.

So DAT was FA sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring?

Why hadnít any other team checked him out?
